    Same thing with me. My Send button doesnt work!!!

  • Anonymous Apr 09, 2008

    that happens to my phone too! when i click the sensor one time, it thinks that i'm sending it a gazillion times and doesnt stop until i close the slider. also, sometimes when i open the slider, it just calls the last person i talked to. this is the worst phone ever, but i'm just waiting for my contract to expire so i can switch to a different carrier. my send button does not work as well, unless i press it 100x harder than the other sensor buttons...

Try taking a razor and gently scraping any dirt or debris from the crack around the edge of the phone. it worked for me!

Good luck

I have the same exact problem. When I press the buttons once, it thinks i'm pressing it a gazillion times, and doesnt stop until i close the slider. Also, when I open the slider sometimes, it automatically calls the last person the phone dialed. My send button does not work as well, unless I press it 100x harder than any of the other buttons...

The fix for this problem is normally a software upgrade from your local Verizon Wireless store. The other issue that can cause this problem is a faulty sensor in the touch pad. If your phones are under warranty the service center can repair them for you generally. If they cant and yoy would like me to take a look at them for you just let me know. I have all the equipment to fix either problem!
Good Luck!

My lg chocalate 2 freezes after turning it on. ia it a costly repair?


I would suggest removing and reinserting the battery, first. If still a problem, replace the battery, which is not expensive.

If it's still under warranty, contact your provider.

Hope this helps.
