    My Samsung SCH-u740 purchased last week keeps randomly shutting off during a phone conversation and it takes forever to get it turned back on. I have a micro sd (2gb) in the phone, but it doesn't even help when I take it out so that's not the problem. Any suggestions?

    My phone also keeps shutting off randomly, it did it once when I was talking to my family and once when it was in my pocket, and it was on a full charge.
    Is it just a bad battery?

I had a friend that just went through this with his Casio "indestructable" phone. They (Verizon Wireless) replaced it free within the warranty time. Worth a try.

Ok my wired connection isnt working. i have a wired connection but it is conected to my PC and when im ready to play online it wont let me. I just wanna take the wired connection and hook it up to my ps3


With networking devices if you are switching the cable from on device to another then alot of times you have to restart the device.

What you need to do is with your PS3 turned off connect your wired cable. Next power off your modem (if you have a router to will want to turn it off too). Now turn back on the modem and wait about 2 minutes (Note if you have a router too after the 2 minutes you will turn on the router and wait another 2 minutes). After you have waited the 2 minutes turn back on your PS3 and it shoudl let you connect to the Internet.

The reason for the time wait is networking devices need a varying amount of time to connect with new devices. So if you wait the 2 minutes this will give your devices the time needed to connect. You may find that with you devices the reset time is faster. Also note if you have one cable coming out of your modem you some times have to wait on your ISP to reset the connection and this can take some time. So if you do not already have a router I would recommend that you get one. Getting a router should also resolve the issue that you are having.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

if the phone is working when the charger is in the problem is with the battery.

from what you describe its a battery issue, so replacing the battery is the solution.
