    Some of you read posts I had where i stated i had 3 Samsung Droid Charges in 35 days.

    This one got up to 115.8 degrees yesterday (111 of it was idle with no apps running outside of trillian) and the entire screen turned blue. Had to reboot.

    Now i have NO G service for 30 minutes.

    Verizon can take this phone and................................................ eat it.

    Anyone else frustrated? Did you replace your phone with another brand? what did you get?

    Vent away!

    I agree with bweN diorD. And I'm sorry to say this, but in Shurple's case it is a very clear case of user error after that many phones and that many (uncommon) problems.

    I liked my Droid Charge much better then my Thunderbolt. Guess it's different for everyone.

    Not user error. Its a pos phone. I don't root or mess with it. The phone is a hunk of crap. What user error do u see? I don't install a million apps. I text brouse the net and IM. I want and expect my phone to use a charger as normal. It was IDLE and got hot. And if you actually read the forum there's PAGES of similar complaints.

    What's a rom btw?

    To say it's user error without knowing the details is a bit assinine if you ask me.

    My wife has a Charge and loves it. She hasn't had any problems with it. Every phone is different. I'm on my 4th Droid. Sometimes you hit a string of bad luck.

    A Rom is a custom UI that you can flash when rooted. It usually allows you to change the colors of certain things and allows you to put in customer kernals for overclocking.

    do you use the stock charger and chord?
    i have seen some complain then find out later they used the charger from their old phone, or an extension usb cable.

    I'm on my 4th Charge ...this one (knock on wood) has been just as I expected. Made one modification to it..from rooted Eris days ...installed Launcher Pro.. Battery life is much better than I imagined
    ... can't argue with 15 hrs +..esp since my Laptop doesn't get 4..and can't do 1/4 of what this can..
    You can call me a happy Camper.

    Since I am posting from my phone I can't remember everyone's names but ill answer-

    Thanks for the rom explanation... still learning :)

    I am using the stock charger as any others make the phone act up. I carry it everywhere I go lol.

    Wow four charges... u have me beat at the moment lol.

    And four droids!? Oy

    Yes to say user error without details is asinine but I assume it usually is user error which is why he said it. I understand.

    A string of bad luck seems to befall too many on this board with this phone. No phone is glitch free but finding one with least problems is my goal :)

    Welcome to cutting edge technology, it's not perfect. I don't see a "lot" of problems with the Charge on here. Just keep sending it back til they give you a good one or a new phone. Then you can get your iPhone (4) back. But, don't forget the case for it, since none of them worked without a case since the antenna layout was a POS. Remember that?

    Glad to see someone was nice enough to correct your post.

    As for no one else having problems, take some time and read the posts. Has nothing to do with being new or not knowing how to use their phone. Some phonemes just Dad up being duds and then it is being replaced with a refurbished one, the chances of it being a dud is that much greater.

    Be thankful you were lucky to get a Charge with no problems... as i was also... but not everyone has!

    Don't bother Tis- he's just a troll.

    To respond to the issues....There are three pages of complaints on this phone. The G issue and camera locking up the phone being the biggest complaints.

    Tis are you the one ordering the car charger? If so did you get it?

    Yes, I did order it and am expecting to get it in the next day or two. When I get it, I will definitely post my opinion if it works as good as it should.

    It's also asinine to assume that I'm basing my opinion on just this post. Shurple has complained of multiple uncommon issues through 3 different Droid Charges. Some that come to mind are: the screen changing colors, the touch screen becoming unresponsive or erratic, overheating with anything except the Samsung charger, and uncommonly bad battery life. When I say uncommonly bad battery life, I'm referring to his claims of 3 hours with LTE on and zero use. I know many have mediocre battery life in LTE mode, but that figure is beyond ridiculous.

    I realize that there are probably a few other people who have similar issues to these, but they are not common. I currently frequent two different Droid Charge forums (as well as visit two others on occasion), and these simply aren't common complaints. In fact, the only one I have seen from other users (well, one other user) besides Shurple is compatibility with different chargers; but, even that was a matter of not charging rather than overheating.

    I wouldn't be so skeptical if a user had a single uncommon issue, or if it was only with a single phone. However, when a user claims to have multiple uncommon issues over the course of multiple phones, I certainly do lean toward user error.

    I like my charge but i agree not using the right cables or charger can causes problems. Also calibrate you battery then give it a few days and you should see improvement.
