    Are you using the charger that came with your phone?

    No, that exploded in the wall socket while charging...I went to have them replace, they had to mail me one which took a week, i bought one at Target....then got the one in the mail, it didn't do it for awhile, then does it randomly....

    You can't use the aftermarket (Target) one as the voltage is different. You need to use the original charger.

    This problem has been touched upon before. Using any other charger than the one provided causes this.

    Ahhh...they sent me one and it didn't do it for about a week, then it's done it a few more times.....gotcha, i'll pitch that one in the trash. Thank you!! If it happens again with the new one Verizon just sent me, any suggestions other than smashing this with a brick?:)



    Nope, I don't put it in my pocket, its either on the desktop/counter when its charged, or in my purse!

    Thanks all!

    If it's still doing it after using the original charger, you should return it to VZW as it's a problem that you wouldn't be able to fix yourself.

    Or you can smash it with a brick, but take a video and post it.

    I have a 3rd phone in the mail to me as the text wouldn't work, but looking on here i got some suggestions that worked...now i don't know if i want the new one....i'll have to "tweak it all over again"

    Haha, yea, i'd probably get a zillion hits on u-tube if I do that.

    thanks again
