My friend almost lost his nuts! He said he heard a sound, a burning sensation on his leg and as he pulled this piece of junk out of his pocket he smelled burning. There was smoke coming out of his pocket and out of the phone. LoL, He said he was scared.

My friend didn't even own this phone for two weeks before it nearly burned him! He said he wasn't even using it; just idling in his pocket and hadn't been used for awhile.

Here's some photos:








Buy another one!

Funny, I was just reading a day or so ago about an iPhone 4s that caught fire and thought to myself.... "Well, that'll never happen with a Skyrocket".

doh.

Most battery fires are caused by liquid shorts or crappy chargers
