Hi, when a phone it is continuously rebooting, it means that memory has been affected by VIRUS.

VIRUS can damage a phone in no time. VIRUS can be caused by downloading applications on your phone through the internet, or might be from data transfer from a phone to another phone.

To remove the VIRUS, you will need to flash the phone memory. Flashing the phone will restore back the phone to it normal state.

You can use this link to see how to flash your phone

Flashing a cell phone will erase carrier data from the memory. Cellular companies can usually do this for a fee. Online buyer sites sell the software kit that will flash a cell phone from home computers.

To flash a phone you will need to rewrite the PRL file by connecting your phone to a computer with the needed equipment. Your best bet is to take your phone to a dealer that flashes phones on a regular basis. For more information


Take care.

How long should i charge my LG KS360 brand new?? should i have it on or off as well?? It is playing up already and its brand new :(

Lithium Ion Batteries are more forgiving then the old Nickel Hydride batteries. They do not have memory cells but "charge cycles" usually about 300-400 or so (enough for 1 charge a day for 1 year hence the 1 year warranty on a battery) ... On/off, 24hrs or 12hrs doesn't make a a noticeable difference.

What you do want to do is NOT make it a habit of texting/phone while it's on the charger. That is the kiss of death on a battery.

Throw it on the charger before bed and let it rest. Also, make sure your display settings aren't set to destroy the battery (100% brightness, backlight set to more then 30 seconds/"always on" etc.)

it should be fine. Don't expect the battery to last days. Most batteries last *A* day in exchange for no memory cell =)

Good Luck

Battery goes dead in 1 day

Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion), 950 mAh
Talk-time - up to 240 minutes

It also depends on if you're texting a lot, because with the combination of texting and talking, it really drains your battery. I have almost an identical situation with my Iphone...

Phone keeps turning off

This is clearly an indication of out-dated-Firmware. For upgrading, you need to get it upgraded online from LG website. If you can't, try a PC Suite.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

My verion envy phone turns off randomly now wont turn back on

Its not the battery. My VX9900 shuts off randomly (powercycles) when Im using the IM app., and has recently started doing it with direct texting. Searching around the web I discovered its a fairly common issue with the VX9900. It turns out theres a firmware upgrade available that fixes the issue and adds a few more features to the phones software. Best to just take it back to Verizon and ask for the firmware upgrade to T99VZV04. From what I understand they may need to keep the phone for a day, but ive heard of people having it done on the spot, taking about 30 min. I also understand its a no charge update. Just make sure to back up your contacts and remove the SD card! I havnt had a chance to take mine in yet, but will be asap..its getting worse and really annoying!

LG Voyager shuts off whenever, during texting or phone calls.

i had this same problem. i was told it was the phone so i got a brand new replacement phone. same thing happened. i got a new battery and put that in the new phone and the same thing happened. i called tech support who assured me that all i needed to do was have my software updated. i took it to a store they updated my software and after that while i was still in the store it shut itself off again twice. i mean this is not a cheap phone and i expect it to stay on as long as the battery is charged. i told the verizon store employees that i am missing calls and text messages and this was not acceptable when im paying for service. it is obviously not the phone or the battery or the software. finally they wound up giving me the newest model of voyager that just came out very recently, right now it only comes in silver, and so far this seems to have solved the problem completely. do not accept a refurbished replacement, it is not just your phone this is happening to ALL voyagers.
