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:

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.

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.

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.
pretty sure he will get compensated pretty good from samsung.

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

    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.....
