  3. Hi
    So I have an s5 and it was locked to AT&T but was unlocked to use in Canada. I am facing a problem with the phone and that is that it sometimes begins to turn on and off its self. This problem persists until I take the battery out and let the phone sit for 5 mins then I turn it on and it’s good until it wants to do the ritual again. I talked to a samsung rep they suggested to run phone on safe mode to see if problem persists and it does , do you have any suggestions. You think I should reset to factory settings will the unlock be avfected
