Question about Samsung Gravity SGH-T459 Cell Phone
It started with my phone shutting off everytime i set my phone down.
It has pregressed to the point where it shuts off no matter what.
It's ruining calls and texts HELP
This only worked as long as I shut the keyboard gently. The problem really seems to be mechanical. When sliding shut, the battery is jostled just enough to lose contact and shut the phone down. Placing a folded piece of paper between the battery and the non contact side of the phone to increase pressure slightly.
Hope this works for you as well

Mine does the same thing so u need to get a small piece of paper and fold it and put it on the side where it doesn't touch. Or u can just get a new battery from cell phone shop.net they have really cheap cell phone stuff their.

I tried both the solution posted by grecoj2 and the paper shim suggested by oqoqoqo. The phone has worked fine since. (It used to shut off randomly, among other problems.) I am currently trying it with just the paper shims (I set the autolock and dim back ON.)
I have a paper shim at the end of the battery opposite from the contacts, and a shim between the battery and the back cover.
I used to work at Moto, and handled a lot of phones. Many are very sensitive to momentary loss of power caused by small mechanical shocks. The Samsung Gravity is (if this is really the problem) EXTREMELY sensitive.
