    Well, I love this phone -- but

    I've been through three of these now and the third has now
    also started to flake out. It's just insane/inexcusable that
    these things should be this bad.

    All three phones have now had problems with the battery just
    sometimes deciding to burn at a high rate. I'll go from fully
    charged to dead flat in ~3 hours.

    Has anyone else seen this or do I just have really bad luck?

    This latest phone has also exhibited 2 other problems,
    in addition to the fast-discharge -- 2/3 of the small
    LCD pixels have turned white all the time and about once
    a week both displays turn all-white and the phone can't
    be used without pulling the battery & replacing. At least
    this means I'm not going to have to argue with their
    sales staff about 'lets try an extended-life battery'

    <rant> I know they don't pay sales staff well enough that
    they're gonna be people who understand physics but jeez,
    when I pickup my phone off my desk and find it notably
    warm to the touch it's pretty damned obvious that it's
    using the battery -- this has happened even after turning
    the phone off but with the battery in with 2 bars and
    find it dead an hour later and they still say 'well lets
    try an extended life battery' </rant>

    Again, I love this phone for features but whether these
    problems are some software or hardware flake it's not
    acceptable, I'm bloddy tired of their sales people saying
    'well samsung phones just use battery fast, why don't we
    give you a different (e.g. sanyo) model' -- they charge
    top dollar for this phone and every cellphone I've had
    before has lasted 3-4 years or more.

    Thoughts on dealing with sprint cust svc on this?

    I have had no such problems with my A700. I've had the battery last up
    to 5 days so far, and NEVER drain more than one bar in a whole day.

    Which is exactly how these phones work for me until theydecide to go
    'flaky'.

    Perhaps I should not carry them in a pocket but that's how I've carried
    my phones for nearly 10 years now and it's never been a problem before
