Question about LG VX8300 Cellular Phone
My phone worked well when i first got it but now when im in the middle of a call it will turn off! I'v also noticed that when it changes temperature, even slightly, my phone will turn off. (i.e. i was in the car and i got out and it turned off, i turned it back on and walked in the store and it turned off again!,it did the same thing on the way to the car as well. Sometimes i will be sitting there in the middle of a txt and i will look up at the tv for a sec and wen i go back to my phone the screen is blank so a press the talk button or one of the keys and the screen wont go on and the phone is off! I had a previous lg scoop and it was messing up even worse and so i had to get another one. Im wondering if it is just a bad phone or if im doing something to make it happen??
I think the reason is sliding it up too hard. I've looked at it and done some experiments and i found that sliding it up too hard can damage the LCD screen and it will occasionally shut down without notice. So i'm assuming sliding it too hard is the main reason.

These phones just need to be updated. If the self updater doesnt find any updates go to your provider and have them update it.

Im working with mine at the moment, my scoop randomly dies and i found that if you slide the battery down or push around the latch the phone will turn off, i just put some scotch tape at the back end of the battery and it keeps the contact tight

I had the same problem. If you are seriously getting frusterated with it and have a few spare coins in your pocket I have an easy solution! Find yourself a nice concrete slab and throw this Piece O' Sh*t phone off of it....at least you feel a sense of relief for a brief second! haha good luck with a new phone when you decide to get rid of this one...Join the club folks!

I have had the same problem. Everytime I take the scoop out of my pocket, it dies. This is the THIRD one ive had since Alltel sucks and wont let me just get another phone. I was told that its battery related and it doesnt take much for it to lose contact and the phone will die. There really isnt a fix to it, just get another phone. It seems to help when you clean the battery contacts every now and then but i still have problems. It even dies when i hold the phone with my shoulder to talk. WTF haha hope this helps =/
