    My Ally last night shutdown killing wifi connection and ended up with a red flashing LED. It was plugged in with an AC adapter running wifi tether. It wouldnt respond to recovery buttons or a battery pull restart. I was soo mad I plugged it back into the ac charger and threw it on the desk with the LED flashing. Some point during the night I woke up to use the bathroom and seen it was booted up at the lockscreen just fine no errors. Should I be concerned, I replaced the battery a couple of weeks ago because the old one wouldnt last 4 hours. This was the first time for this phone.

    My other one had a small crack in the screen and was plugged into my pc and all of a sudden one night, the pc shut down and everything was fried including my phone. I dont know what it was a surge or lightning, but they wouldnt replace it because of the scratch. That phone also got very very hot and would run dead in an hour or so. It also made FM radios glitch out if you put it near them within a couple of feet. I dont know if feeling sickly constantly from radiation or bad chinese food, but somehow one night it killed everything(i think it could have been the phone but knowing electronics could have been the power supply in the pc melted down shorting out AC to DC killing it all at once). I had to claim insurance on it, and now this thing with Velocity 1.2 I dont want to assume they will replace it under some type of warranty as its only a couple months old. I also dont want them to know velocity is on there and say it was velocity that did it. I did some research and found it to be a hardware issue with the charger system in the phone could malfunction leaving it useless.

    There is one problem with that I had my phone charging last night with a month old extended battery in it and the red blinking light happened. Even if i used the phone for 24hours every day which i dont think is possible i think it still shouldnt of killed my battery completely with in a month.
