Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Phone went dead while talking

Charged it less than 24 hours ago, and I've had it for about a month and charges have regularly lasted 3 days or so (I use it only for phone, no photos or anything else).  I plug in the charger and get the "battery charging" message, but the battery never charges to a point where I can use the phone.  If I unplug the charger, the phone just goes dead.  I'm on a trip and am really going to need to use the phone a lot--am I going to have to replace it???
Help!!!

    Thanks for your advice....  It was brand new, at least as far as I know--I bought it from Verizon about a month ago, and it looked new, but I have no way of knowing for sure, I guess.

It sounds like you have a defective battery. Usually when batteries won't hold a charge for very long, then it's time to replace them. Was the phone brand new or used ? If it was used then I am surely gonna say battery, but if it was brand new then it might be something else. I would say that I'm 90% sure you have a bad battery. Hope this helps solve your problem.

Well it sounds like a combo of both. Definitly get the battery replaced again. The phone itself probably needs new software. take it your service provider's corp store to get the software updated.

Nokia E65 dead during Nokia Software Upgrade


I was just upgrading the Nokia software on my E65, connected with USB, charged and connected to charger for backup... and the phone just went dead. I've tried everything to get it going again including taking the batery out and outting it back in aain, holding the on/off button down for a minute - and nothing is happening. The screen is dead. Is Nokia's new upgrade causing this? I see two other posts to this site with the same problem in the past 24 hours. The upgrade was posted on Nokia.com 24 hours ago. my mail is singh1316@yahoo.co.in

Charging new phone


it wont harm your phone they just recomend 24 hours to make sure the bat is ok and that it gets fully charged but remember to let your bat go totally flat from time to time this will prolong the life of your battery as it does them no good just keep topping it up so i sugest to let it go totally flat say once a month this will keep your battery lasting longer between charge hope this helps
