    :thinking:what is the expected end of life for the Samsung Exhibit 4G?

    I bought mine off ebay for $285 in Oct. of 2011 and lately (Feb. 2013) it is (unrooted-factory settings with apps) rebooting randomly, battery draining and dying almost daily. Everything is turned off (wifi, data 4G, bluetooth, internet, it is a text-only data plan as I can't hear on phones). I'm wondering if it is at the end of it's life? I would be vastly disappointed it if were.

    Any other Exhibit 4G owners out there?

    I am having the same issues: hangs randomly and very often, battery dying everyday. I went to TMobile store to see if they will cover the hanging issue and the rep went straight to the battery and opened it and showed me how it was not flat and the bulge on it. He said it was due to recharging often which is not true in my case. I switch off phones during night. The battery replacement is not covered and I will have to replace it for anywhere from $10 to $50. I am still under 2 years agreement and the phone is not even 2 years old. It is surprising that Samsung makes/uses such cheap batteris which will not last 2 years. I was thinking that I am an exception but after hearing from you I decided to write my experience as well. TMobile customer service is good but the TMobile dealers are useless.
    I had to replace my SD card once since the phone won't recognize it and TMobile phone-customer-service covered it even though TMobile owned store won't do it.
    Does TMobile officially declare EOL for phones ?
