    So, I looked at my phone charger, it was all burnt up, smelt like smoke. Took it out, and yep. It was burnt. So I turned my computer on and used another micro usb, and it was still smoking. So, I don't know if maybe my phone got to hot? I woke up and the phone was under my body, so maybe that's one reason. But, I let it sit for a bit. 10 minutes and I plugged it in and it was still smoking. Has anyone had this issue?

    I would definitely try to notify Samsung and make them aware of the issue. It might be a hardware issue that's covered under warranty.

    Sounds like it is shorting out pretty hardcore, I would contact Samsung asap.

    No doubt, I called up the insurance company they redirected me too, I explained the situation to them and the lady just laughed and kept saying "Wow, you're the first I've heard to have this issue in my years of working" I don't see what could of happened, my phone was just fried, but it could still turn on, but it was a very odd way you had to do it.

    But, I called them and had to pay 65 dollars to get a new phone shipped, just have to send this one back when it gets here.

    I guess it's better than paying 150.

    Years back when I was with Bellsouth Mobility/Cingular/At&t. I had a Nokia 3150 overheat and start smoldering. The funny thing was that it was a day out of warranty and wasn't plugged up either.

    Thatss why I never pay for a warranty.I figure if it breaks I will just buy a new one or upgrade to the next newer model.I don't see paying an extra five bucks a month plus the 65 a very Good warranty plan myself

    this almost happened to me, I was cooking dinner and i plugged my phone into charge when I came back it had fallen in between my couch cushions and the phone felt extremely hot and a message appeared on the screen saying, "temperature too hot or cold to charge". I let it cool down and everything turned out ok. I guess what i am getting at is watch where you charge your phone. :D
