    A verizon tech suggested that maybe someone that knows what they are doing could go to the back of the phone (in the case that I could get the phone to them) and replace something to keep the phone powered on long enough to transfer info???????

You can't, the phone has to stay on to be connected via PC Suite/Studio to your PC to synchronize your contacts etc...
Unless your contacts were stored on your SIM card, or the phone stays on long enough to allow you to copy them to your SIM card, it's too late now but for the future, back up your phone to your PC, using the software provided by the Manufacturer.

    It's always possible to change parts in a mobile phone to fix any problem, but the time and cost involved doesn't make it viable.

X tried to get rid of tracfone i Samsung s125g found it still has sim can get it on but not stay on or get to anything need contacts but especially incriminating texts what do I do?

the sim card is programed with there information, directory, computer controlled information, minutes used, incoming and out calling, all the phone control access. it not worth trying to change providers, i would just get another phone provider, now you get another sim card from another provider and trash the old sim card and put the new sim card. but you will not get all the warrants, phone assistance because you are using some one else phone, just get a new phone and sim card it will be easier and less hassle for you.

Lg voyager- endless power cycle- how can i pull info off?!?!?

I just had my phone loop into an endless power cycle this morning, and this is what I did to get my pics and ringtones off:

1. Pull out the battery.
2. Hook the phone up to the computer with a data cable. The phone screen should show "battery required", and should stay on.
3. Open up BitPim (other programs may work) and get the files you need.

Once I had my files saved from the phone, I went ahead and tried to get the phone to turn back on normally with it still plugged into the computer.
As soon as I put the battery back in, the phone screen switched to the charging screen while still off. I power cycled it this way a few times, then unplugged the cable, and powered it on, it rebooted twice and finally powered back on normally.
Hope this helps you out!

When i start my handset it starts and nokia logo comes to screen then it just stay there and after 2, 3 minutes it gets powered OFF. what is actual the problem. what i think is that might be it phone...

How old is the battery? If its too old it might not hold enough power to run the phone. Try charge it and after 30 minutes or so power on the phone while charger is plugged in and see what it does.
