My wall charger is not working anymore for my samsung conquer 4g what can I try?

Download an application called "Advanced Task Killer". This will kill any unnecessary applications running which consume lot's of power on your phone. You can also try looking into your settings as to how everything else on your phone is running, which you may be able to change, which will also save power on your mobil device
-disable "Auto-sync" under "Accounts and sync" in settings.
-enable airplane mode or disable individual radios when not in use or in no signal areas like a basement (example: WiFi, 3g, 4g, GPS)
-If you disable "Automatic brightness" under Display settings you can control brightness by sliding your finger along the notification bar located at the top of the screen, Tip: the lower the brightness, the less power the display consumes.
-Use the built in task manager by pressing and holding down the HOME button and selecting "Taskmanager" from there press the "Help" tab to get more suggested tips To extend battery life.
Get power cords for work and home. If you use your car for travel during the day, like a salesman, get one for your car. All those other options are defeat the purpose of buying the phone. Airplane mode? Turn down the brightness? Disable auto sync? Huh? The reason we all got this phone is to USE THE PHONE AS IT WAS BUILT. The only way is to get more power cords. Swapping out the batter is requires removing of a case, if you have one. Pop the back. Reboot. How practical is that if you're using the GPS, on a call, or checking e-mail at the time the battery is about to die?

Cords. Cheaper. Faster. Simpler.
i think all the indulge heavy users should run extended battery...will avoid alot of
i used to go around ,loosing hours and hours tryn to find a piece of app to make it last longer,buyn, more...i mean i paid only 10 bucks with the cover at the metro store, even if is 16 like the post above,i think is still worth big time...that dosent mean u should ignore the phone problems and stop re-searching for a better way to make the phone better, but at least gives you more confor to do so,and less stress, use the litle ones for spare when u runing out of bettery and dont have much time to do a full charge etc...i have 2 extended and to standards...witch is no need once u have one extended is enough if dont use the phone alot, in case u do, a spare battery is suficient...the reason i got 4 is because i already had 2 standard before i got the 2 extended...once again,i think every indulge user should spend and extra few bucks and get a new extended battery...never buy used ones...

Forget mi samsumg toco password


Use this to reset your phone if you have forgot your pin number

Turn off phone remove battery, then remove sim card, replace battery without sim card, turn phone on and enter code, then wait for phone to reboot itself (do not turn phone off as this could cause problems, so make sure plenty of charge is in the battery). When it has rebooted it is now unlocked.

I have a Storm 9530. One evening I plugged my phone into my wall charger (not computer) to charge and when I woke up the next morning... low and behold the infamous battery with red line showed on the...

It could be the charger, the phone's power interface, or your battery. When you plug the phone in to charge it, does it recognize the charger and show the lightning bolt symbol for charging?

If you use your computer's USB port to charge it instead of the wall charger, does it act any differently?

Not charging

your battery is gone mostly. Try with the new battery it should work. When you drop battery in liquid, it shorts and doesnt work. If in warranty call samsumg customer support. Do not continue to use as it may cause more problems with your phone.

Battery runs down fast.

hello there....well its quite simple...

how old is your phone ?
i am assuming its an old phone so it is time to change the will see that batter is slightly puffed or out of shape that case you should immediately change it

if its a new phone....then check if blue tooth is on or should be off....and if you use the phone a lot then also the batter will run out in 3 hrs and 30 minutes of talk time...playing music as well as keeping the camera on for a long time will drain the batter

so it depends on how you use it ....if you have more question we will take it from there

Hope this help

Need Info

Read the manual and you will be able to connect Bluetooth TO 660 , menu Bluetooth active , be sure you LG phone is active on his bluetooth, connect and recognize will be done , you will see.

GARMIN 660 is working with a battery and also with your car adapter. I don't see any reason why it would not work on battery ?.

Your issue is not clear concerning the battery ?
