Past couple of mornings I have come downstairs to find my phone ON after turning it OFF the night before (or thought I had).  Its stock running on Telecom ICS, and today I reset it back to 'fresh' and only a couple of apps downloaded calwidget and circle battery plus the updates that are on play for the stock apps.

Sitting here tonight I press the power button, select turn off, select ok and it turns off (with the little vibrate) and a few seconds later boots up!!  It is as if I had selected restart not power off but I know I did.

Any ideas?

could be dirty or damaged USB port, trying cleaning with a clean tooth brush and see what happens.

yes doing a bit of reading seems to point to the USB phone.  As it is a company phone I may just take it into the store rather than play around, sort of fix it, then have the problem reoccur.  Just tried resetting again and does not appear that to be any software issue.

thanks

have a quick look in the port and make sure the prongs aren't bent and touching as well, maybe something simple like that or the port is stuffed.

Mine does this in the car when charging with a 12v USB ciggy lighter Adaptor. Each time you turn off it just keeps on starting.

Makes you think theres some sort of signalling with the right charging kit.

If you do choose to get the USB port replaced, could you post where you got it done amd how much?

My S2's port is bust and I really need to get it sorted soon.

Thanks
