Re: Help everytime i close my phone it shuts off

The battery might be shot or your memory might be full, when my phone started acting funky I called my company and they saaid that if your memory gets full you hae to go and either delete some of your pictures or if you save a bunch of picture messages you have to get rid of them or something. If your battery is shot than you'll need a new one, I got one for five bucks brand new off ebay after shipping and handeling and everything.

How do I stop the battery from draining after only a few hours.

try letting the battery completely die and recharge it. Do this 2 or 3 times. Sometimes "topping up" a partially charged battery puts a memory into the battery and it wont allow you to do full charge.. I let my Nokia get to its last legs before replacing the battery with a spare and then fully charge the other one. Both batteries are now at least 6 years old.. Yes , its an old phone...

It has been charging for 5 hours like this and doesn't turn on. What do I do? It turned on twice but stayed at 1% for about 10 minutes but then shut off again. I have no idea why it is doing this and

If the cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

If it's a phone for Boost Mobile. You need to call Boost Mobile and have their tech support walk you through resetting the phone.

I've had that happen to me through Boost many times. There's a bunch of secret codes and things they'll have you enter to get your phone to connect to the network.

My old incognito did the same thing. Everytime they'd update or do anything I had to get it reprogrammed

Battery Too Dead to Charge?

It might be because its an old battery. I had a phone for 3 years and everytime I took it off the charger maybe 20 minutes later it'd be down a bar or two. You should try taking it to the place you bought it and ask them.

Hope this helped
