    it comes shipped from hong kong ...

    i seem to be having some sort of issue where if i move the phone wrong, or wiggle the back cover it will reboot the phone. presumably it is not a good connection

    Does anyone have that same issue? Are there any fixes? I was so anxious to try the 3500 :(

    For anyone else having this issue, i may have found a temp solution

    After looking closely, it appears the battery is not pushing against the terminals hard enough to keep the connection.

    I took a sliver of a business card and folded it, wedged it against the top of the battery and the housing of the phone ... in order to push the battery down.

    it appears to be exactly what i needed. My only concern is heat ... i have no idea how hot it gets in there!

    Does anyone know if there is a risk of fire by having paper in there?

    Mine didn't have connection issues, and I don't think it can get hot enough to light anything on fire.
