Question about Cell Phones

Phone went dead while I was talking....

I have only had this phone for 6 months! I can't believe it died! Can anyone help? Mine did the same thing as described in this post above. I bought a new battery but that didn't seem to help. I can turn it on as long as it is plugged in to the computer or regular charger but as soon as I unplug it ... it turns off. The battery is good and fully charged. I even used my voltmeter to test it. Help!

    Thanks guys. I have a new battery and the contacts are clean and making full contact. The phone is brand new, barely 6 months old. I have never dropped it, got it wet or abused it in any way shape or form. Keep those suggestions coming.

Check the contacts from your phone to the battery there is something wrong there, are the contacts all of them touching the battery, clean corrosion of them with sandpaper and blow out, charge is not getting out of the battery to the phone circuit

My Crosley CR-55CR wall phone went dead six months after purchase and I cannot find anyone who will help me get it fixed. Ideas?


Inexpensive phone.... simply replace it with a new one. Should cost you less than $10, which will most certainly be less than any postage involved in returning it for repair.

Not receiving incoming calls was talking to my


I used to have this exact model. More than likely, your battery has become "unrechargable". I used to buy replacement handset batteries from ebay every 6 or 7 months. After 3 years, I finally got rid of the phone and purchased a nice Panasonic (just cheaper these days!)

The replacement batteries usually sell for $3 or $4 on ebay. Here's a link of one that's one now: http://cgi.ebay.com/Battery-V-TECH-IP8300-DECT-6-0-89-1326-Cordless-Pho-/330486596555?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4cf28943cb

Thank you and good luck!

I was talking to my mother and the call dropped.....now my phone is dead and when I try to turn it on, it acts like it is turning on and then it goes black/dead.....I've only had the phone for about 3-4...


plug it in and if it does the same thing then it is the phone if it works when it is on the charger the battery probably just died but if it does not hold a charge very long after it has been unplugged from the charger it is the battery for sure.

Will not power "on", will not charge


Did the phone fall on water? Is the charger and USB cable still working properly? Notice that if the phone cannot charge, the battery will be dead and the phone cannot power on.

Well it sounds like a combo of both. Definitly get the battery replaced again. The phone itself probably needs new software. take it your service provider's corp store to get the software updated.

Nokia n95 fault


I was just reading about a similar problem the other day. Make sure you don't have any of the buttons locked down in the pressed position.

Specifically, they were talking about the gallery review button, next to the camera shutter button on the right side of the phone, the one with the little PLAY arrow and the checkerboard pattern on it.

Dead; will not boot up


I to have the same problem. Palm will switch a refurbished on to me for $175. To talk ot their tech support will cost $25. I have decided to do 1 of 2 things. 1. replace the microdrive with a 4Gb Compact flash and if that is not successful, just throw it away and NEVER get another Palm product. Mine died just after the warranty ran out. 12 months plus a few days.
