Alot of times when Im talking the phone just shuts off. I close the phone then when I open it back up it turns back on. All by itself. Its not but about a year old and been kept in very good condition.
Mine kept doing the same and it was only 2 months old, so I was not entitled to a new phone only a repair, (of course the problem didn't occur when I was in the shop!) The guy at O2, gave me a new sim card,and said to wait about an hour and my phone would show no service,then to put in the new sim, BINGO! (of course if you do this, save all your numbers etc to your phone first!! Its been ok for about a year now, and has just started to do it again, will have to get the sim changed again.

Probably the phone got wet. If it also shuts down while your closing it, just close it real slowly and that should fix that problem. Any other note the phones may have come defective cause i had one and that happened. The phones is probably just trying to restart to reset itself to be able to handle a virus or just water that entered the wrong way. Still you should just get a new phone. :)
I have this phone and im having the same problem...what works for me is to plug it into the charger and turn phone off then back on again...i have to hold down the on/off button a few times before it comes back on.....im sure once i get a new battery this wont happen....ya i can only talk on it a few min and cant sent pic messages becuz it will shut off if i do.....try replacing the battery
mines just shut off like when say im trying to go to ringtones its loading for a long time then it shut off and when im glin to camera it says camera error n shuts off metro pcs told me the only reason its turning off is because i have alot of ringtones so im gonna need a memory card
I just got mine a few weeks ago and it does the same exact thing (I didn't drop it, there is no water damage, I didn't understand the cause of it). I took it back to the Verizon store and I was told that the random shutting off like that is caused by having the phone outside being exposed to heat. He reset my phone back to factory settings and that did the trick for awhile (its hard for me to go to the pool and not have my phone exposed to the heat). There is no charge for them to reset the phone. Mine has started the random shutting off again back up
I would reccomend getting a new one rather than trying to have it fixed. You seem to have a short in the hinge area causing your phone to go off. Trac phones are easier to replace than get repaired. Unless you have a friendly neighborhood phone Phreak available.
If the Mobile IM is your culprit ... Unfortunately there's no real way to fix that at this time. Yahoo and AIM and MSN just need to come up with better Mobile applications (i've noticed it happens ALOT more with the yahoo mobile messenger)
If Mobile Email is your culprit: Just delete the application then redownload it .. Should fix the glitch.
