Questions and Answers

How do I turn my Samsung Galaxy S5 off and then power it back on?

I am having a problem with messaging another person that has a Galaxy S4. We are not getting each other's text messages. I had been getting them all along, but yesterday I think I did something on the phone. It may be that I am not on SMS for messages, but I am messaging. I was going to try to power off then on, but I cannot seem to do that either.

To turn your Samsung Galaxy S5 on or off, you will press the power button, which is on the top of the phone. As the issues you're described indicate a software conflict of some sort, we recommend that you press and hold the power button for 20 seconds, which will restart your phone in what is known as a soft reset. This will close any other apps that are running and may be creating a conflict. Alternatively, you can simply remove your battery, which will force the phone to reset. Either of these options will let you restart your phone, without the conflicts that are currently causing you to have problems sending and receiving SMS messages.

I charged my battery until it was full. I then tried to turn my phone ON but it didn't work. Is there some other way to turn ON my phone? Should I take it to the store?
