    Sounds like one or more of the pins that connect the battery to the
    inside guts, are or have come loose. That happened to a i850 we use.
    But it could be the battery itself is going bad. Just take it to a
    service shop for replacement. The i560 is still a new phone so *I*
    would think that 9 times out of 10 you'll get a new i560 instead of a
    refurbished one.

    Re: i560 shutting off

    Thanks. I just found out from Nextel that it will cost me either $35 or $55
    (I can't remember) to have the phone fixed or replaced, even though it is
    still under warranty.

    Thats odd, how long is the warranty on the phone? I would think that
    you would not have to pay anything.(little do I know!). I have always
    carried both the "Direct Protect Ins"4.95 and the "Nextel Service
    Plan"2.95. I can not remember anytime that I've been charged extra to
    get service.

    Re: i560 shutting off

    I called an authorized repair center, and the person stated that they won't
    know if I will be charged until they open the phone up.

    He also went on to say that the shop or Nextel (I'm not sure which) has been
    having lots of problems with my model phone.

    I 'll post the repair shops findings tomorrow.

    Re: i560 shutting off

    FYI. All the guy did was clean the sim card w/ a pencil eraser and bend the
    door that the sim card slides into. I'm hoping that fixes it because my
    phone warranty expires on 9/1.

    Thanks for the help!

    Re: i560 shutting off

    Based on my experiences, when a Nextel phone is shutting itself off
    randomly, it's usually that the SIM isn't fully seated. A lot of the
    phones seem to come from the manufacturer like this. Sometimes it's not
    bad enough to cause trouble at first, but as dust and dirt makes its
    way into the phone over time, I guess it gets between the SIM and the
    contacts on the back of the phone and exacerbates the situation.
