    January 5, 1980...and EMERGENCY

    My phone shut off on its own, and when I tried to turn it on, it wouldn't turn on. So I took the back cover off and took the battery out, waited a few seconds, put it back in and the phone turned on. My phone literally went back in time. The date and time of my phone changed to the posts title, Jan. 5 1980.

    Then as soon as I changed the date and time back, the gingerbread update that some are having trouble downloading (4.08) keeps coming and I go to accept it and my phone counts down in reboot, shuts off and I assume it's supposed to reboot and update. Well, it's not working. Unless I take the battery out, the phone will not turn on and even then, the same thing occurs again, 1/5/1980, update, phone shuts off and nothing.

    Is it bricked? Please help!!!!!

    The same thing happens to my phone

    All you have to do is be patient. Whenever I turn mine on it says it's 6:01 on January 5, 1980, but it turns back on its own.
