So my nokia lumia is doing the same thing, just I've had the phone for 2 years and it only started doing it this month, just after the warranty ended. Barely use it at all, just for the occasional text once every third day or so. Otherwise it's widely under used, don't understand how this could just come about.


could this be a design problem affecting particular Nokia models. My 535 model is extremely frustrating going on and off automatically. Its only one month old. Am from Kenya
