Question about T-Mobile Dash Smartphone
My dash Phone after a good 10 months of having it, suddenly turns off out of no where, turns off when on a call, when there is no reception or when one of the battery bars gets exhausted. I have already recived a replacement dash phone and i was planing to buy a battery but reading through all these comments i am thinking twice to do so.
Please any advice will be well appreciated.
A whiz at my local T-Mobile store by the name of Noura took a look at my batter and noticed right away that something wasn't right... It is a little warped/bubbled up on the flat surfaces. You can tell if you lay the battery flat on a table and it wobbles when you touch it - like an unbalanced table or chair does when it is unbalanced. She said this is a sign that the battery has reached its maximum life and occurs when it has been over-charged.

Same problem for me. I found that if I hold it with my thumb over the screen and my fingers on the back, raise it above my head approx 18 inches, then forcefully thrust it over the edge of the building you are on whilst letting go at the same time, it shatters on the ground and you can feel good when you go buy a different phone (changing carriers and getting an iPhone offers the best results in this method)!

I have found, although against normal process, that if I unplug the battery every so often while the phone is ON that this doesn't happen nearly as often. I've also placed too tiny things behind the battery that pushes the battery into the contacts which creates a nice tight battery fit.
I say "things" because you can use whatever you see fit. Pardon the pun
I find that my phone may shut off once a week whereas it used to shut off about 10 times a day

I noticed the battery warpage when the phone started power off/on.
i almost always have my phone on the charger, because if using wifi the battery is dead within 30 minutes. guess if this factory default doesnt work, i'll be buying a high mah battery and using this warped one for home use while on charger :/
i lost all my contacts when trying to back them up too, not happy about that
