I have had my Samsung Galaxy Precedent for about 7 months, and have been pretty happy with it. Recently it began to show that it was charging when it was even plugged. I wish I had found this forum before I returned my phone!! I was sent a refurbished replacement, but it wouldn't send or receive pics via messaging. I would get the "sent" message, but the pics never sent., and I couldn't receive either. I returned that phone and received another refurbished phone...and alas!!! I have the exact same issue!! Both phones had to be activated thru the customer service department because of transferring my number. I have spent HOURS on the phone going thru the same steps over and over, just to be told that I need to send the phone in for replacement...again!
