Question about Pantech Duo Smartphone

1 Answer

Short Battery life, Randomly shuts down, and more...

My girlfriend is on her second Pantech Duo, a phone she switched to when she dropped her RAZR into a bucket of water....
Anyways... The phones worked great until about their sixth month of existence.

The battery life drops to about 8 hours standby.
It randomly shuts off.
It will fail to receive calls.
It will stop messaging.


She got a new batter for the first phone, and that fixed the problem for about a week, so they sent her a new phone. New phone worked just like the old one did and about 5 and a half months after she got it, it started doing the same thing.

Any suggestions on what we can do to make this thing start working again?

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.

Sometimes if the phone memory is full it will not allow text to be sent. You should also power your phone off and on every day or two.

My palm centro started going dead with a low battery signal literally overnight. I replaced the battery with a new one, and it still won't stay charged longer than 6 hours. Also the phone is now running...


I've had a Centro for 3 months and its such a let-down. Not only does the other caller find that my voice comes and goes randomly during calls but, like you, the battery started playing-up.

You'll find that a hard reset will bring the battery life back up. Hard reset clears EVERYTHING, so backup. To hard reset, remove and replace the battery while holding down the red, drop-call button until you are prompted to hard reset.

You'll find the battery life is bertter again, at least for a couple weeks...

Pantech duo turns off randomly


Open the battery compartment and look at the dot at the bottom. If its pink you have damaged your phone, usually water damage. It will continue to shut itself off and on continuously. You will have to have a new one.

I put a password on my pantech duo and i forgot it!!


This worked for me....
press and hold down the S and the L keys while powering up the phone. Continue to hold the S and L keys after it turns on. It took about a minute of holding the two keys down, but it worked. It did wipe everything I had on there off. Including the lifetime call timer!
