intermittent fault with "Sleep Mode" and bezel not closing properly
Rodney, I have the same problem with a 3GS. This was an intermittent fault on my daughters phone. I also noticed that on her phone, the corner (top right - camera area) had a gap between the chrome bezel and the case (back). To put her phone into "Sleep Mode" you had to squeeze the corner tight, and then it would work. So I set out to see if I could fix it (I repair laptops for a living). Well after dismantling the phone I was shocked to find no loose screws in the corner area and also struggled to find out how the bezel has meant to be held down. I decided to glue the bezel. Trouble is the Sleep button will not work at all now and the phone is in a loop as you described. I think the flex is damaged. Or I have not put the phone together correctly?
