LG Optimus T shuts off by itself

I just got a replacement LG Opt T yesterday because my first one kept starting up in Emergency Mode. Now this one - not even had it 24 hours - is shutting itself off.

 

The battery is charged. The SIM is new as of May. Software is updated. What is going on? Anyone else having this issue? I had this issue with the original phone until my SIM was upgraded. Getting very frustrated with this phone!

    Mine is doing the same thing. Calling now to try to get a replacement

    I had this problem with the first one I bought in April. They replaced the SIM and it was fine. I got a replacment phone two days ago because it kept going into Emergency Mode. The replacement phone kept shutting off. I got a new SIM last night and it seems to be ok.

     

    Try a new SIM before you pay for a replacement phone.

    My LG Optimus doesn't shut itself off but it does periodically take it upon itself to shut off the ringer and the vibrate fiction. I get calls and I never hear or feel them. I can't imagine how the phone is doing this? Any suggestions?

    Mine shuts itself off randomly, freezes about 5 times dailys, and claims that I've removed the SD card when I haven't.

    Don't call the manufacturer about your problem. I did (my phone turns off the ringer all by itself) and their response was to tell me that the problem I had couldn't possibloy happen.

    Same problem and more my touch screen only works sometimes my Apps get randomly deleted and no help at all from T-Mobile all they do is charge me 5 bucks and put in for insurance claim for another defective optimus t I guess they really just want the etf and another lost customer

    If Phone keep getting Emergency Mode because it can't find T-mobile services. This does happened when you are trying to use it in the inside of the building. Many building have ability to prevented signals from any T-Mobile Tower.

    It is likely (but not always) that some of these problems are related to a rogue app.  You can try doing a factory reset or you can uninstall the apps that you have downloaded from the market.  Then you can start reinstalling them one at a time and if the problem starts happening again you have found the culprit.  The sd not being recognized is a known problem and sometimes can be resolved by taking the sd out and then placing it back in.  Mine periodically did that and it would just eventually right itself or sometimes a restart resolved it.  I would suggest only installing apps you really use on a daily basis and use the market as a sort of "library".  You can go in and borrow stuff anytime you like, as it only takes a less than a minute to download apps, and then return when you are done.  Because the processor is not huge and the space not unlimited it is best to run your phone on the lean side.  Do not use a task killer, android does not like it.

    Mine has been shutting off at random and removing my SD card for months and I keep getting told that I won't get a new phone, it's only a software problem.  When I do a master reset it goes away for a little while but always comes back, no matter what I do or do not install on my phone.  Also, I try to update the software and it takes me to a link to update a previous version of the software, not the one I have.  The tech support on this is garbage.

    My girlfriend had this phone before she got her MyTouch 4G and while she didn't have the reset issue, she did have considerable trouble receiving text messages sometimes.  Two days later, they'd all come through at once.  Then she handed the phone off to me til I was due for my upgrade and I experienced the restarts and SD card issue before I finally reached my upgrade.  For the last kick in the pants, the last day I had it, I stopped receiving texts as well lol.

    Hello  Myu opitmus t. shuts down by itself also. But what is ironic  I don't notice it has shut down until I hang up. In other words it shuts down while Im in conversation. When I tab end call ..The call already ended. How is it possible to have a conversation when my phone is turned off.

    How is this possible?
