My Samsung Galaxy S (Captivate) occasionally locks up, so that the screen freezes and it doesn't respond to any user input. I also cannot hold the power button down to bring up the menu to Reboot, Turn off, etc...
The only thing I know to do is open the back and pull the battery out and turn it back on.
So, my questions are 1) Is pulling the battery to hard shut down harmful to the phone? 2) Is there some button sequence I can press to restart the phone?
I'm running a 2.3.4 Gingerbread based ROM.
