    I'm one of Verizon's outcasts. I currently am under the grandfather status and refuse to give my unlimited data up.

    Here's my story

    My Rezound a month or two ago out of the blue was unable to charge. I chalked it up to father time. Being on unlimited I of course can't upgrade and didn't have the funds for a full retail purchase. I resorted to eBay and bought a LG Lucid for $50. Pretty decent phone IMO. Now the same thing that was happening with the Rezound is now happening with the Lucid. Wont charge.

    Now I'm desperate and purchase a damn Pantech Breakout off eBay for $15. I end up rooting it so I can tether (to my surprise tethering works well)

    Here's where it gets weird. I rely a lot on Google maps for my job and the pantech just wasn't cutting it, so I tried charging the lucid in attempt to tether the connection to the lucid while driving for the Google maps. Not only did the lucid hold a charge better, when I actually needed to charge it, it charged. Even while Google maps was active.

    Sorry for the rambling but my question is. Could Big Red possibly be sending some sort of signal or anything to the phone when it's active on my account and there network. To make the phone not work, to possibly wear me down and use my upgrade.

    ps
    I'm on the Lucid and used it to write this and have been on it most of the day.

    I've gone through no lie 6 chargers. Cheap, exspensive, Verizon, non Verizon, high volt & low volt.

    Not to mention 2 Lucid batteries and 2 standard batteries and a extended for the Rezound. If you would like a picture of them all no problem

    Only time I have trouble is when either phone is activated
