    March 28, 2017: AT&T sends out some update. Screens displays update is complete. Phone reboots and, and, and...... nothing! Bricked phone. AHHHHHHHHHH!

    I had it charging so after the phone stayed at the AT&T globe logo for an inordinately L-O-N-G time, I unplugged it and attempted a hard reboot. Nothing! I started hyperventilating. I got up and got some ice water (to pour over my head and stop the volcanic eruption about to take place). But when I came back, why, the phone had rebooted again and it was fine. Good thing, too, I was ready to race over to AT&T and give them a piece of my mind.

    As near as I can tell, after the mess, it was a security update because the phone is still Android 7.0.

    Glad to hear the phone has recovered. With all the horror bootloop stories you never know what to expect.

    Nothing is worse than a boot loop when you've done nothing wrong. Glad it recovered (n)

    Glad it recovered KJ.

    Typically I knew what I may have done to cause the boot loop and not knowing would have been quite unnerving.
