was probably a fluke, i dont know how you would cross battery connections without some sort of a jumper/maybe a liquid that would cuase this. its like putting 2 nine volt batteries ( the square ones end to end ) eventually they will melt/maybe explode from the heat building up.

i can see this happening if something small got caught in between the battery and phone connection while re-seating the battery.

If it is truely an AT&T skyrocket, maybe AT&T sent the remote distruct command when your friend put a Roger's SIM in his phone.....

lolwow. Report this to @galaxyssupport on twitter. They seem to respond fast to issues. But I don't know how connected they are to the company.

Will be interesting to see unfold. We had a local Guy claim that a motodroid exploded near his face last year. He went public and went after Motorola claiming glass shards cut up his face etc. I want to say they determined dude had dropped the phone which cracked the screen and everything beyond that was staged.

the problem was obviously a battery fire, not the phone itself

this could mean it was a faulty battery or the contacts might have got wet by the closest source of spill

after all it was near his balls, according to the OP


just return it to rogers and get an exchange, you'll need a new SIM card & SGH-i727R anyways
