    Was given one of these recently, it seems to switch itself off with no
    warning, even though the battery appears to have life in it. But switching
    it on again, it turns itself off while searching for a network, which does
    make it seem like a battery problem.

    Searching on the net, I see there was a known defect with these, wherby they
    would switch off randomly. Is the cure for this known?
    I've cleaned the battery contacts of course.

    Help and suggestions are very welcome.

    Regards
    Gary

    Re: T18S problem

    I remember when I was using the t18,
    there was a different world...
    terrrisom was a rare word in the media..
    yahoo, microsoft and amazon stocks was shooting through the roof.... etc etc



    well, back to the problem.. I think the metal (copper) contacts in the
    phone,
    is bented "backwards" so when there is a slight move on the battery they
    loses contact.

    what you should do is just bent a little bit outwards...
    it should fix it . I had that problem in the past, and I think I fixed it
    that way....
    if my memory was correct....

    Thanks, did check that out previously, but the problem was indeed a faulty
    battery rather than the contacts, it appears to charge okay, no dead cells
    as such, but just not supplying adequate current. Replacement works fine :-)
