Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Question My cell phone...

The Samsung G21 Ultra...that is only a few months old... Seems to have taken a shit. Never wet, never dropped. The touchscreen seems to be unable to "read" a touch. I am unable to enter my numerical pin, to unlock it. WTF?

If you can take the battery out, try that and let it sit for a couple mutes, then restart it up.
I am not familiar with your particular model.

Battery is not removable. All part of the... "You must now buy a new phone when the battery craps out in your present phone," plan.

Ok. I figured it out.

Somehow, the "screen touch sensitivity level," became readjusted to the point where the touchscreen became essentially deactivated. Beats me how that happened. ?????

I was at the point where I was going to purchase a new phone....then.....I had a moment of clarity....
