    so for the second time, my vortex has just completely shut off. no "power off" warning or anything. both times while i was using it while it was charging. after it shuts off, the search button on the bottom right hand corning begins to flash. nothing i do will seem to turn my phone back on. i took out the battery and everything. so i just left it plugged up. a few minutes later it turns back on and it works fine. just wondering what the problem could be and how i can stop it from happening again.

    LG phones are very sensitive to the chargers used.

    actually something happened to my charger, not sure what. i think someone sat on it or something. the charger was bent and i had to get a new one. the charger i have now works just fine but it's bugged out on me a couple times. now my phone is up and running no problems. i dunno, both times it's happened after i plug my phone up when it has barely no charge left.

    Get an OEM LG charger. They cost a bit more, of course, but it should stop the twitching. It used to be LG phones would pop up a warning if you used a non-OEM charger.

    I am very good at bricking my phones. I had cm9 installed on my vortex and then tried reallized that somehow I flashed the wrong rom and it forgot how to charge the battery. Anyone having this problem can resolve it with the following steps.

    1. remove the battery from your Vortex.
    2. Plug it into a charger.
    3. hold volume up and back
    4. insert battery.

    Your phone is now in download mode.

    Follow these steps to unbrick your phone and remind it how to charge....
