Default Fascinate - Strong Electrical Shock to Ear

A couple days ago I was using my Samsung - Fascinate to make an outgoing phone call while driving. I had the phone up to my ear and could hear the phone ringing. As soon as the person I was calling picked up there was a very loud electrical shock noise. It was so loud that I threw the phone across the car. The person was still on the other end of the phone and questioned what was going on. It took 2 full days for the ringing in my ear to go away. I have searched pretty hard on this forum, as well as the rest of the internets, and haven't found anyone with a similar experience. Most other complaints seem to be from small shocks while touching the phones with their hands, typically with the phone plugged in and charging. In this case the phone was not plugged in.

I'm getting a new phone, but I'm just curious if anyone has any ideas on why this might have happened.

Moisture? That's the only thing I can think of...

Odd issue. Have you used your phone as a phone again since this happened?
