  1. My Samsung galaxy mega was updating at&t software update,and after it was complete I can no longer control my phone.everything else works but the touch screen I’ve tried reboot and its still not responding to my touch.please tell what to do.everything thing worked perfectly before I tried to update it.

    1. Rocky, you should try a hard reset. Or else, get into an at&t store and explain them what happened. It sounds like their OTA update broke something. But first, try to reset Android with this tutorial.

  2. My Mega is really acting up…at first the charging SLOWED down tremendously…bought a new battery, still not charging properly. Then had charging port repaired, fixed that issue. Then, my text messages are taking hours/days to send/receive. Bought a new Sim card…messaging still not working properly. Also, alarm does not work and Facebook app does not refresh properly. Does anybody know what I can do other than buy a new phone?

  3. I restored my Samsung Mega phone back to factory set-I lost a game and all the progress-is there a way to restore the game?
