avast! Anti-Theft locked out my S3 totally! EMERGENCY!
« on: May 29, 2013, 11:15:42 AM »
I've just confirmed my email address on the registration, for the avast mobile security & the anti theft product for smartphones.

I'm using a Galaxy S3 with whatever the latest version of android.

So, after confirmation (whilst browsing on my phone) I wanted to test out the GPS map locater, clicked a few tabs and a drop down box about sending information about my phone (I selected "just once") then I clicked the map again... all from my smartphone, then suddenly it locked up my phone, the screen went black and I can no longer do anything on my phone, its like it's dead, doesn't even turn on or off or do anything at all.

what is that all about??? And what can I do now to get my phone working again??

try to pull your battery. seems like a phone crash. though its hard to believe that its caused by anti-theft never heard of such issue.
