LG Dare turning off almost constantly

Phones turns off at random times, sometimes freezes up and not able to unlock phone. I have to take the battery out, and put it back in then it works fine. About three minutes later it will turn off again. Does my phone need a new battery? or do i need a new phone?

    My husband has the LG Dare and it has worked great, but lately, when he goes to sign on to the internet... it shuts the phone down. He has tried taking the battery out for a while to see if it makes a difference, but it still does it.

    i took mine to verizon and they gave me a new software, but it still does not work, my phone still turns off. you'd think for a phone over 150$ it would not do that.

    My Dare randomly turns off in my pocket, while im on the phone, txting, ect. It just started doing it a few weeks ago, and seems to be getting more constant. It happened 3 times today

    Same problem and when I take it to Verizon they act all shocked and tell me my phone is the only one that has ever done this. I am on my 5th Dare and still no luck. I have also noticed that my service will just go from full service to NO service then reboot and all is normal again. Verizon has no current fix for this and I'm certain its a software problem. Also my daughters Voyager shuts down but not as often as mine.

    in the middle of calls, in the middle of texts, or when i happen to pull it out of my pocket, the phone just turns off by itself. mine does not restart. i have to turn it back on manually. it seems that the most minor bump causes it to shut off

    I am so very up set!!! This phone is nothing but SHUTS OFF for everything..I sign on to the internet and it shuts off. I had my phone shut off for 7 hrs. not being able for it to re-boot!! its so annoying. Then when I send a message the "MESSAGE SENT" screen stays up for up to 3 minutes and it doesnt allow any phone calls to come in. Nothing but trouble

    My phone shuts off at random times. I took it to verizon and they gave me a software update and said that it would take care of it yet it still shuts down. I have had the phone for about 5 months. I agree that a phone over $150 shouldn't shut down. My screen also went white on me a few days ago. I don't know if i should waste my time owning the dare or just buy a new phone if it keeps giving me problems. Will verizon give me a new phone if i bring it to their attention?

  • imspunkyyo May 23, 2009

    my phone freaking does this too! i've taken it to the store 3 different times. twice they've given me a new phone and once they re-downloaded software. its so annoying! for a phone that costs THIS much money it should have NO glitches! i'm about to take it back up there and demand a new phone that is not the dare! ne one got the new lg? ne good?

  • amandalynn27 May 25, 2009

This happens to a friend of mine phone's also, I think if you took it into your local Verizon Wireless store and had someone there look at it then they might be able to help you. Good luck!!

Touch stopped working w/o drops or damage to it.

Get someone to call you and don't pick up. Then hit the send button twice to call them back, and it should prompt you to enter the unlock code. The code might be the last 4 digits of your phone number, or all 1's or 0's or something like that unless you set it yourself.

I just recieved my LG Dare 1 day ago and since I have recieved it, I have fully charged the phone but everytime I take it off the charger the battery life will decrease to 2 bars and then it will randomly...

since you bought a new mobile phone,you need to boost a battery for charging more hours first,and people get around 4 hours of talk time. You should empty out the battery fully and recharge it fully, again. Good luck.
i have read the reviews oof no worried and if you have weak singal stregnth in your area you might loose you battery power quickly anyway thats not your issue.
