  • Works great.

    Phone power/lock button completely disabled for Android Kyocera Hydro.

    Used this to help fix that issue.

    *Volume button will not wake phone from lock.

    If my phone locks, I can insert charger as a back door into phone.

    From there, it offers a way back into using the phone, instead of staring at a blank screen.

    • This is NOT a Playstore App!

      Download from this website, then look for notification icon and open app. Turn on the App.

      Install Widget on phone to lock phone.

      Use phone charger to bring up unlock option.

      • Okay, charger is not needed, my bad.

        After tinkering with app, I figured it out.

        *Use this Widget to lock phone.

        **This Widget let’s you use volume buttons to bring up the unlock screen.

        Offers a quick, reliable fix if your power/lock button is not working.

        HIGHLY recommend this app!!!

        Thank you to the person responsible for this Widget!

    • Cristhan,
      Connect the charging cable, after charging starts
      Remove the battery
      Wait to see the charging LED go off
      Connect the battery
      Phone will boot
      This may vary by phone models
