My pantech duo started doing some weird things 2 weeks ago. first every now and again the screen didnt light up the after 30 seconds i tried again and it worked. then yesterday no matter what the screen for when the phone was open sideways was dark, like little backlight. and then i turned it on today at around 2:30 PM and there is no display. sometimes there is a little bit of light but no picture and its very faint. i can still recieve and make phone calls. anyhting i can do to fix it?
From the way it sounds, mine started doing this yesterday. Everytime i turn on the phone, theres just a backlight and nothing else. well the only way i noticed to get it to work, atleast until i can get a new phone is, to leave it slid up because it wont do anything if its closed or slid sideways. And while it slid up, I either have to call it from my home phone or recieve a text message. I'm not sure why but that made the screen come on so I could atleast check everything. It doesnt always work but it does most of the time. I hope this helps. Just play with and figure out what it takes to get your screen on. I'm not sure how to permanently fix it though.

sounds like the battery is shot. Get a new battery and fully charge it. I try to charge my phone more off of a power outlet and not the cigarette lighter in a auto. The battery will last longer that way. something about cigarette lighters. As far as the messaging and failed calls goes. up grade your tower signals. contact your cell phone company and get the number for upgrading the towers.
the issue may not be your phone or the battery. It may be the charger. My friend and i both have a pantech duo. She was always having problems with her battery, draining just after two hours. The funny thing was that whenever she used my charger, the battery kept charge. I tried my phone out on her charge, and found that it didn't keep the charge either. So we went to the store and found that it wasn't the phone, it was the charger.
Often the charger can mess up the phone. Order a new charger, and that should be the solution to your phone.
The Pantech Duo does not have an option available to do this automatically in it's factory settings. There is an add-on freeware program that will accomplish it. This was one of the first programs I downloaded to my phone months ago when I first received it and it works great to allow a call to be ended when you close the phone.
The only way I have solved my problem was to get att to replace it. Fortunately, it has been working ever since. And att customer service was excellent, I got my replacement phone in less than 12 hours after i called.
