Default phone overheating/ not charging

my Behold II was working perfectly fine until yesterday it started getting really hot for no reason. then it started losing battery FAST so i did a hard reset and that didnt help. the battery even dies when its plugged it!

Either something is wrong with the charger or the battery has gone bad. STOP USING IT or the battery may overheat and explode causing a chemical fire. I'd say give Tmo a call or go to a store(a real store, not some kiosk) and show them.

Default Same problem

Behold II battery has been good for weeks. In the past few days the battery will go from 90% to 3% in two hours with no usage (wifi/bt/gps off). It heats up as well. This seems to happen at random, as the battery will be good for a day between uses. Recently installed Astrid (and set hourly vibrate alarm) and Handcent.

BTW I got the OTA update.

Any ideas?

I had the same thing happen to me when I first got my phone (I won it from the Behold 2 Sweepstakes). I sent it to Samsung and they took about a month to repair it because they did not have a piece that was needed. Yesterday my phone overheated and shut off. I am mailing it back to Samsung so that they can once again repair it.

Mine started overheating yesterday while I was charging it. It got really hot, I never had this happen for the few weeks since I had it.

Yeah, you need a new charger if its not charging but its best to turn off your phone when you are charging so that that doesn't happen because even though its on charge you are still using battery and the "overheating" problem is normal it just happens sometimes.

Dude, This Definitly happened to me yesterday. Seriously. While I was at work. I was thinking it was because of the 1.6 so I just switched back to BH man 1.5 and my phone is doing fine. So ill just wait till BH Man Fine tunes 1.6 then Ill go back to it.

Similar issue here: phone spontaneously powers down with little to no use on a fully charged battery. It's even powered down and back on its own. Call TMO, spoke with someone in tech support. Described issue and she said it seems as if battery's gone bad -- TMO sending me a free replacement battery. Also told if replacement battery didn't work; TMO would replace device.

I've had the same problem with the phone overheating while charging. Had to send the phone back. Now the replacement phone is doing the same thing.

Most recent problem - can not turn the phone on because I can't charge the battery in the phone. But had a spare battery and put it in. Phone turned on but when that battery died, could not charge it. Tried two different chargers. Neither will charge the batteries. Seems there is something in the phone that is heating up the phone while on the charger but not charging the battery.
