Question about Samsung SCH-u740 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Samsung u740 wont charge anymore

So.. I have the Alias or whatever and everything was going fine. I come home from work and put the phone on the charger and the stupid thing won't charge! The light on the charger itself stays lit and all but it won't charge the phone. So, I went to a store and had them hook the phone to one of their chargers and it still won't charge! Ugh! Now I have this **** and I don't know if it's inside the phone that sux or I just need a new battery. At one point, I was told that when you buy a charger that didn't come with the phone (you know, like one of the generic ones from the corner store), it corrupts the battery and it won't work properly anymore. Any truth to this? Is my problem the battery or the phone???

    First, locate that old has been phone you had before being snookered into buying the Alias ( like me-mine was in a junk drawer ) attempt to reactivate it, put the Aliases charger in your pocket and take both phones to the same Verizon counter that sold it/them to you. While being ignored tie the chargers cord around as many display phones and display racks as you can. When finally noticed as a viable customer politely ask the sales person to check the phones charging capabilities and kindly retrieve your contact list from it and place it in your old phone. When told that wont be possible until you come up with a charged battery walk away smiling to yourself about the chargers cord. Next locate some poor unsuspecting schmuck with the same AKA POS and use their battery to open and copy your contact list. Finally drop the Samsung Alias into a cat box and time how long the next available cat comes along and buries it for the AKA Alias it is. Post results here. Finally, either pay the $50 insurance, buy another phone somewhere else or wait for your two year contract to end while using that old has been phone.

Bad battery, you can get one pretty cheap off of www.uxcell.com for like 3 or 4 bucks, as far as using a generic charger, I never heard of that before, if you know someone with the same phone, ask yhem to use the battery for a second, and try to charge your phone.

Unfortunately, you cannot. Verizon phones have integrated SIM cards that you cannot take out. You cant unlock a verizon phone.
