I have a Nokia phone, and this is rather bothersome.

I hope they figure out why this happened. I'm due to get a new phone in February, and this could influence me to go with a different brand.

I heard two other similar stories. One I just read last week and it was on a Kyocera phone (I can't seem to find the link to the article at this time), and another was also a Nokia phone and the cause of that was also a cheap imitation battery.

I've owned about 4 or 5 different cellphones in the past...oh, 3 or 4 years almost. All of them have been Nokias. It's a reliable brand. I doubt you have too much to worry about.

Oh, snap...and to think I've been using Nokias for years now, after they started sponsoring MCC (now Horizon League...feh) men's and women's basketball postseason tourneys.

Time to upgrade to that snazzy flip phone with the color LCD screen, methinks...
