    Default Mobile Charging issues - not battery?!?

    Anyone know anything about mobiles? have the LG viewty - KU990.

    Has been a perfect phone till recently so never upgraded etc and had it 2 yrs, its just started to turn off when texting or phoning etc, shows full bars but goes down and off quicky once in use. even on full charge over night etc. changed battery's and same... leave it a little, turn back on and full bars showing...

    Does this sound like a software issue or anything else? does it sound repairable?... its not the chargers also as have 2 and a usb one

    i have a viewty its been ok so far. missus has ks360 with similar problems. its has been sent back to have ribbon cable replaced. but its starting it again. since the veiwty doesn't have a ribbon. it could be a software fault. check some of the forums for a firmware update. that might help

    Went to the shop near me.. Gave me a free non LG battery to test and its working, says give it 3 days if still working pay him, if not he'll have a look at the phone...

    As already changed battery once and same, is it possible that somethigns gone in the phone and allowing the batteries to over charge if not disconnected when full... the original LG battery looked really swollen, replacement LG looks a little big... this one thats in now looks fine... Kinda daren't charge it lol...

    I was offered one of these on contract as my "free upgrade", i didn't know much about the phone, but I asked how long it had been on the market.... The woman said "it's brand new out in the last few weeks, it's a very exclusive phone, nobody else will have one". I very quickly said "no thank you!!"

    The latest tech is all very well, but most of the time and especially on mobile phones, they've been rushed to the market place and released before being fully debugged/tested.

    I went with a 2 year old Sony Ericsson instead.

    Personally i'd have a poke around the web, see what other peoples experiences are and then phone the mobile company to complain if you find out it's a well known issue.
