The phone loses signal very often and then the battery dies

I charge my phone and no less than 10 minutes after i disconnect it from the charger , it starts losing signal . and then the battery starts to die . the only way for me to keep my signal is for me to keep the sk on the charger . ive gone to different tmobile stores , done all the resets :soft reset , hard reset , factory reset , and still it continues having the same problem . the customer service told me that all i can do now is buy a new phone because it cracked a piece and the warranty doesnt cover physical damage -_- .

This might be the battery problem. Try to change your battery with a new one.

I have a Uniden D1680 cordelss phone system. Often times when talking for two minutes or so--it disconnects--this happens alot. Any suggestions???


UNIDEN is notorius for this. It could be losing connection to the base - are you moving around while on the phone? or it could be the battery is not holding a sufficient charge. You can move the base unit to see if that helps - maybe something is interfering with the signal. You can try taking the battery out of the phone and putting it back in. If that doesn't work then try swapping the phones and putting them in each others charger. If that doesn't work then try letting the battery die by leaving the phone off the charger for 24 hours and then recharging for 24 hours. Good Luck!

Try charging it for an hour even if it is indicating that it is already full in 10 minutes. If the battery still gets drained after a few shots, then you should change your charger.

LG Dare quickly dying even after a long time charging.


Hello,

The cells of the battery of your phone is very low that it can no longer hold charge.

All you need to do is to get a brand new battery for replacement.

Please charge the new battery with your phone to indicate the battery is full before you start using it.

This will help in a long way to keep your battery life span last long.

Take care.

My phone will not hold a charge at all. I've taken the battery out, let it set, put it back in for a few minutes and still no charge. The longest the phone lasts without dying is 10 minutes


Hello

Remove the battery and test it with a similar phone to ee if it will hold charges, if it does, it means the battery is good, but if otherwise change the battery.

Next place to look at is the charging port, check with a similar battery and charger to see if it will charge, if it doesnt, change the charging port.

Also test your charger with another similar phone to see if it will charge, if it does, it means the charger is good.

Best regards.

Ok first of all you should never let a phone die out of charge at all.IF it dies out of charge there are chances it might charge again once you charge it but in some cases it wont, you need to boost your battery just like jump start your car.It cannot be done anywhere except some service centre. If you are not taking to your service center , then you need to buy a new battery.

Phone does not charge


When my phone is connected to the charger, it says fully charged. But as soon as I disconnect the charger, the battery shows empty. When I connect the phone to the charger, it starts charging but after 10 seconds it says fully charged.

Battry dies


I would try either buying a new battery or cycling the battery that you have now, before spending the $200. Run the battery completely dead before re-charging it. I've seen handheld phones (this was years ago) that would shut down once the battery reached a specific voltage, which would not be low enough for the battery to lose enough charge to deplete its charge 'memory.' Many batteries will hold a charge for less and less time every charge cycle, simply because they aren't run down. When we encountered this problem, the manufacturers suggested that we hook a light bulb to the battery (we'd use a 12-volt car turn-signal bulb) and when the bulb would go out, we'd re-charge the battery, and then when it was fully charged, run it down with the bulb again. We'd do this three times, and the battery would be good for say another year or so. Hope this helps. If not, let us know.

Stops while talking


Hi folks with aging JAMS. My JAM is still dying (complete shutoff) using phone. I wish it would just lose the phone signal but my unit shuts off completely during phone calls. I can have 80% charge. I spoke with a friend that mentioned on his cell phone (different manufacturer) that although his battery will show a full charge or less, the time it takes for the charge to go down is ridiculously fast once the battery is old. He watches his phone lose a charge in under an hour though it charges to full.

I wish IMATE would make some formal post regarding when to get a new battery and what symptoms are possible. I'm a bit hesitant to invest in batterys if the issue is hardware. I use the unit alot--as a PDA, a phone, etc. It gets jostled about so maybe something is lose inside, though I doubt it.

I purchased a cheap phone charger so in the car I'm recharging and at work I just keep a cheap USB to plug charger. I reserve the phone when I'm out. This is not really optimal for cell phone use but it's a behavioral fix. I figure I should be looking at a new device (despite high prices) soon.

I did a full discharge/charge cycle or two or three but only noted short term benefit. At some point the quirky behavior returned and off went the PDA cell with the 80% charge. I see dots of us around the net. Again my Jam is probably 3 years old this March.
