    For the past 6 months or so my phone has been spontaneously turning off. It does it sometimes when I close the qwerty section, or when I hang up from a call, or I just go to used it and it's off.

    It was rooted on 2.3 (.1?) before, but I reformatted it and upgraded it to 2.3.3 because of this problem in hopes of stopping it.

    It didn't work =/

    If anyone has any ideas please share. It's pretty annoying and I still have a little over a year with this phone.


    Although truth be told, other then this problem I love the phone.

    1) battery is on the way out, so replace it. they're about 10$ on ebay
    2) battery is loose in slot, so add a little paper wedge or whatnot.

    Having the EXACT same problems.
    My lady has the exact same phone and hers never does this.

    My battery actually was dying, got a new one from Dr.Battery (use them instead of shitty ebay sales); it seemed to work for a time and then started doing it again. Tried using the battery from the wifey's phone; still does the same thing.

    It does it most often when closing the keyboard. That being said, I think my connection between the screen half and the keyboard half is loose; I'm not only getting random shut-off problems, but the back/search buttons are randomly triggered when I have it open and squeezing the two halves together seems to help.

    TLDR; it's old and connections are loose; be careful when opening and closing it. Replacing the battery may help but it's not been a for-sure fix in my experience.
