Question about Cell Phones
Hey guys, i'm sorry but i have some bad news :(
This black screen of death which you have all been experienceing has been a problem of many different phones and all of them have the same cause. It is a manufacturer defect in the phone which pretty much has screwed up the software inside. Sometimes it may take a while for this problem to be come apparent (such as in my case it took nearly a month). I have done hours of research, and there was only one solution. The phone needs to be replaced.
Sprint has told me that no customer will be charged for replacing the phone (insurance or not) because it is a manufacturer / software problem. the only difficulty is that without phone insurance, it may take a few weeks to get your new phone sent to you from Sprint. With insurance, you can just walk into a Service center and get ur phone replaced on the spot.
One major pain with this problem is that all phone numbers and data (except on the mini sd card) is erased or unreachable.
Sorry about the bad news, but i hope this helps everybody getting this same problem no matter what the phone.

My samsung rant is red.i've had it since Christmas of '08.I haven't had ANY problems with it at all, except sometimes when i charge it it doesn't charge, and the light turns orange.But all you have to do is turn your phone off, if it was on, and take the battery out and put it back in.

Phone went dead and when I plug into charger it says..."Abnormal State Charing is Disabled". The phone will not charge.

I"m not trying to solve this problem. I just wanted to leave a comment. My husband and I both have Samsung Rants. We've had them since November 2008. Back in January we had to replace my husbands phone with b/c he was having the FLASHING BACKLIGHT OF DEATH! I just got off of the phone with him and he is saying that his screen is beginning to turn white... again. This is going to be his third phone in 7 months! I'm really ********** about this b/c Sprint continues to sell this phone without any warnings! Don't get me wrong, I love the Rant, just not the problem that comes along with it. Oh and I wanted to note that my husband has the BLACK rant and I have the RED one. I haven't had any problems with mine other than not being able to redial unsaved numbers ( which was fixed by resetting the data in my phone ). Meanwhile my husband seems to be getting all of the problems. What color is your rant, and are you having problems?
