Beta Update Broke my Phone

(Topic created on: 05-12-2023 07:11 PM)

My S23+ must've updated overnight, and I forgot I was enrolled in the beta testing. So when I woke up, my phone was unresponsive to any type of touch or gesture. My phone would be almost completely useless if it weren't for Google Assistant to make calls, but that's all I can do. I restarted my phone to fix the problem, and I even tried a full shut off of the phone, and nothing. I can't restore my phone on the smart switch using my computer because the prompt on my phone to allow transfer is unpressable, if that makes sense. Any Ideas??
