Question about Samsung SCH-u740 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

I have had three SCH- u740 cell phones and all of them burn up battery life

The phone gets really hot when charging. And the battery dies within a day. I have VErizon and at my home it always is roaming. I know that kills a battery, but what's with the burning up?

Sounds like a short to me. I had a similar problem on a PDA phone the carrier replaced the battery and cured the problem.

Samsung sch-u740 screen started blinking vcast start up screen

Verizon told me that maybe at the store they could possibly download the software back on to my phone......that's a big maybe. The tech told me that once it gets to this point, a lot of time it's too late. If they can it will happen, if they can't oh well, I'll get another phone and go on. I really like this phone and the version 2 from what I was told, won't do this. But I also know to back everything up.

LG viewty ku990 - no battery life and phone gets really hot


I dont know if this will help you, but it helped me. I had the same problem, with phone not holding charge and getting really hot both during and after complete charge.
I needed my memorycard from my LG to my other phone, so I took it out, and off course the phone needed to be charged so I charged it, and... it did not get hot at all, and when it was finished, the charge lasted a day and a half!! Now the problem is I cant use the memorycard anymore in my Viewty :S Win/Loose situation i guess....
