Thank you for the information, IalreadyHaveAnAccount. It seems that you had completed a lot of troubleshooting steps, going as far as to wiping the device out to its factory state. When this was done, did you restore all your current information, like restoring your apps and other personal info back onto your phone after the phone was reset? Have you tested your device out in safe mode after the reset to see if the issue persists or not?
