Pre Overheating Issues?

Question for the forum. Does the Pre stop charging if overheating?

Re: Pre Overheating Issues?

On this subject... I ran my GPS and bluetooth with my phone on the car charger yesterday while on a road trip.

I have had no overheating issues until now, but after some time running this way the phone got blazing hot and has not been right since.

Taking it back to the Sprint store today for a replacement.

Re: Pre Overheating Issues?

I drove 4 hours with mine on the touchstone and used telenav... No problems, charged from 10% to 100 just about as quick as normal, too.

Apparently not all units have the overheating issue and it is a sign of a defective unit.

Sprint store advised me today that there were 3 types of defective units that they had seen so far. Overheated, bad mic and something else I can't remember.

Got a replacement from Sprint today although they made me pay a $35 restocking fee because they "couldn't find anything wrong with it".

The rep that was helping me was really nice. We talked about the custom rom he was running on his TP while I waited. The manager was far less cool, but they eventually, mostly took care of it.

So your phone was overheating, and you couldn't reproduce it for them?

Read above... it overheated really bad on the trip down and then was not the same after that. Was not responsive and the screen transitions were choppy.

I just don't see how Sprint charged you a fee...

If they conclude that there is "nothing wrong" with the phone, you have to pay a restocking fee to exchange... even within your 30 days.

Basically, what it boiled down to is that they had limited number of Pre's... which they wanted to sell as opposed to letting one go as a replacement.
