    phone randomly turns off. It can be while I am texting or if it is just sitting on the table.

    I'll turn it on, and 10 seconds later it shuts off! it doesn't turn back on unless I take out the battery and put it back in again. I got this phone just a few days ago, and it has worked perfectly until today.

    I have the same problem!
    I got mine from 3 in Sydney. I'm up to my 3rd handset.
    I'm hoping i just had bad luck on the last two.
    Not only was my handset turning off randomly (sometimes a low beep wouldnt go away until i took out the battery), it was also running with heaps of lag, and sometimes the email button wouldnt work. Its funny the guy at the 3 store tried to explain this is normal for a high powered phone, and you need to turn it on and off heaps. Bul$hit thats the reason, as it happened 5 mins after i walked out of the store. Eventually he agreed it was a fault with the handset.
    The phone is awesome, if only these faults not arise this time (got 3rd handset yesterday).

    Fingers crossed.

    I've replaced it and updated the software and it's happening again!
    I'm on my 3rd one. Other than that, I love the phone.

    phone just died...now it won't turn back on.

    Mine randomly turns off also. Sometime, it will be ringing with an incoming call and I will open the phone to answer it and it shuts off. The front screen is black, it looks like 3 cracks in the screen even though I didn't drop it. My husband has the same phone, and both his fron and inside screens went black within one week of each other. We have had them just under one year.

Try a master reset, or cleaning the powercontacts, or maybe the phone needs a firmware reinstallation, ok so then, maybe if you do one or all of these things it should work...:-??

SOURCE: my verion envy phone turns off randomly now wont turn back on

Its not the battery. My VX9900 shuts off randomly (powercycles) when Im using the IM app., and has recently started doing it with direct texting. Searching around the web I discovered its a fairly common issue with the VX9900. It turns out theres a firmware upgrade available that fixes the issue and adds a few more features to the phones software. Best to just take it back to Verizon and ask for the firmware upgrade to T99VZV04. From what I understand they may need to keep the phone for a day, but ive heard of people having it done on the spot, taking about 30 min. I also understand its a no charge update. Just make sure to back up your contacts and remove the SD card! I havnt had a chance to take mine in yet, but will be asap..its getting worse and really annoying!

Battery


As long as it fits in your your new phone and is the same the battery has the same amount of volt you can, if the battery has a lower current the phone might not turn on if the current is to high it could wreck you phone.

Hello.

if your mobile phone behave this way, this means that your mobile phone battery is bad

what you need to do is to get another new original battery from the shop.That is a phone shop

LG envy Bluetooth


sorry you cant as Verizon blocked this feature for some reason, though you can get the file off of the phone on to a computer and then send it to the rumor via bluetooth.

LG ENVY SCREEN


Some cell phone dealers will replace the screen. It will cost you though. To replace both screens on this phone will cost about $60-$80 depending on the repair shop.

Help wanted with my envy vx 9900


Why not simply call Verizon or stop by a Verizon store and let them fix it for you. You can't format a phone that I know of, just the memory chip in it.
