I've owned the A380i for about a month now, when ever there is slight pressure applied at the battery the phone shuts off, i tried cleaning the battery terminals, I have no idea what the issue could be...i need some help please...why does my phone randomly shut off? especially when pressure is applied to the battery???
Same thing happens to our phones. What I did first was I took the battery out and use the second battery (came with the phone) and securely placed the battery into the slot (make sure there's no "cushion" between the battery and the phone) and make sure the phone cover tightly slide back in. It seems to work after that.

Verizon is now saying that the battery contacts are at fault. They gave me a new replacement with, they say, redesigned contacts. Apparently pressure in the right place on the phone will cause the battery to disconnect and the phone powers off.
This only worked as long as I shut the keyboard gently. The problem really seems to be mechanical. When sliding shut, the battery is jostled just enough to lose contact and shut the phone down. Placing a folded piece of paper between the battery and the non contact side of the phone to increase pressure slightly. Hope this works for you as well
sounds like the battery is shot. Get a new battery and fully charge it. I try to charge my phone more off of a power outlet and not the cigarette lighter in a auto. The battery will last longer that way. something about cigarette lighters. As far as the messaging and failed calls goes. up grade your tower signals. contact your cell phone company and get the number for upgrading the towers.
Go into wap settings in your phone and add new connection and use these settings.
