My phone keeps turning ON and OFF. How can I fix this?

If your Android phone is turning on and off on its own, you may need to reboot your device. The following steps will reboot the device:

  1. Press and hold the power button on your phone to turn it off.
  2. Once off, hold down the power and the volume-down button until a recovery screen appears.
  3. Use the volume-down button to scroll to the “reboot system now” option.
  4. Once “reboot system now” is highlighted, press the power button one last time.

Your phone will reboot, and power back on. This should fix any problems you’re having with your phone turning off and back on by itself.


I received an error message on my phone. What should I do?

Error messages are generated for many different reasons. You may be unable to send a picture or video message, or you may receive error messages if your phone is connected to the wrong network, or if data is disabled on your phone. But don’t worry! It’s typically easy to fix.

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Go to Settings › Wireless & Networks › Mobile Networks or Data
  2. Once there, make sure data is enabled.
  3. Go to Settings > System Update > Update Profile or PRL
  4. Select “Update Profile” or “Update PRL” (if you see both, please update both).
  5. Once selected, wait a moment while the phone finishes updating. Some phones may restart at this point.

If this does not solve the error, or you continue to receive error messages, contact our excellent customer support team. They will be happy to walk you through troubleshooting your phone.

  1. Go to your Q Link phone’s Settings.
  2. Select Wireless Networks and then choose ‘Mobile Networks‘.
  3. Click on ‘Data Enable’. Toggle the switch to disable data.
