    Last night my phone was alright, until I was in the shower, playing my music for 3 minutes, it would cut it off, and change it to another song. Then it shut off 15 minutes later after I had gotten out of the shower, and all day today, it's been turning off and on, and my power button doesn't work. I tried taking out my battery and my SD, restoring to an earlier time when my phone worked...idk. My power button makes the click sound when I press it, but it doesn't turn off the screen, or bring up the menu.

    By the way, yes I have taken a bath with the phone before, so I'm sure it's not that

    I currently have Area Rom 3.0.

    Any suggestions? And by the way, if I go to walmart and ask if I can exchange my phone (Yes I have my warrenty) will they do it? My phone has no scratches on the screen, and the only problems with it is that it turns off, and the power button doesn't work.

    I have the exact same problem.  It started last night and now my power button is all wonky and my phone restarts all the time.  Now the only way to unlock my screen is to plug it in the charger.  I tried a factory reset and its the same thing.  I just upgraded to 3.3 to see if that would help but nothing.
