Pantech Burst Battery/Charging issues

I am surprised that no one else has posted issues with this....

My first Pantech Burst did not seem to hold a charge very long - 36 hours tops - and I wasn't even using the phone much. Tech reps all insisted this was "normal".  It only took a couple of weeks before phone stopped charging altogether.

AT&T sent me a replacement charger - but since I suspected it was the phone I stopped by an AT&T store and they verified it was NOT the charger.

I was sent a new phone.

Worked like a dream - hel the charge for 2-3 days.. until this morning.

Same problem - plug it in charger and ...NOTHING!

 

This time they are just sending me a replacement battery.

I am thinking that they have a warehouse full of bad phones and batteries that they keep sending me!

But in the meantime - I have no phone again.

Any one else have this problem, and how did you see it resolved?

You need to contact cpsc.gov regarding this issue, so that they can investigate into why it is happening. The battery was the manufacturer battery, no third party battery, correct? How long have you had the phone?

Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?"

First phone was maybe about 2 months.

This second phone about 2 months or less.

No third party equipment - all direct from AT&T

Let cpsc.gov know what happened, so that they can look into the issue.

Might just be a defective batch of batteries or phones.  It happens.
