    Phone shuts off, mostly upon closing the phone???

  • cdandersonjr Nov 13, 2008

    Mine too. It drives me nuts. Turns off often when opening. Like right before that call you've been waiting for.

  • richardsavar Nov 25, 2008

    I have the same problem. The phone's turning off completely by itself like, i take it from the pocket only to find that it's off. My phone is a brand new of only a month.

    This phone is terrible. I am on my second one after the first was replaced via warranty and had initially received my first due to problems with the phone of another manufacturer. Both of these phones have restarted themselves, and it is not specific to a certain function that is being performed at the time.

    Verizon tech support told me it sounds suspicious that I am having the same problem with phones from two different manufacturers as I had similar issues with a Moto Razr. WTF!!!

    Same deal here - phone is 1.5 years old and decides to turn itself off every couple of days. I tried switching the battery but no luck.

    same problem with my phone too and it stays on if I keep it connected to the charging point

    Yup my phone shuts off randomly in my pocket sometimes too. Doesn't matter how much or little the battery is charged. It appears to turn off always at random. Like the others, never turns off when plugged in. Phone is about 1.5 years old and the problem only started happening a couple of months ago.

    had a problem a year ago where my phone would turn itself off and I would also get a "Camera Start Error". I exchanged it and the problem went away for about 8 months and then came back again. I exchanged it again and it has been marginally better. The problem does seem to get worse when I put an older battery in the phone. I also noticed that the problem is more frequent when closing the phone when it is cold (left in the car for an hour)

  • tautchia Apr 03, 2009

    Yup. Same problem here with my daughter's phone. She is on her 3rd replacement of the phone for various reasons. Now we are out of warranty. The camera always gets Camera Start Errors. It shuts itself off randomly. This started again about a month ago and got more frequent. We finally had to turn the phone off and borrow an old model for her to use until she is eligible for upgrade.

    If verizon is going to make you wait for 2 years before you can upgrade, they need to offer phones that will last that long.

    I've been having the same problem recently and I've had mine for about 2 years now. It's get pretty annoying.

  • RWT1 Apr 15, 2009

    Same problem, on a six-month-old unit. Battery indicator shows the phone is fully charged, but it will turn itself off at random intervals.

Cell phone keeps turning off although is fully charged.

Sir, the problem may be in firmware. I suggest that you reformat it first. But after reformatting it and the problem is still there, the problem must be the hardware itself. To remedy that, you must replace each and every parts that you think has the problem like for instance the connector in the phone where you plug in the charger.
