Hey guys,

I have been using Uitukka for more than two weeks now, and the thing is i get a lot phone getting switched off by itself. i mean there are two instances: 1.Were i hang up from a call and all of sudden my screen goes black and then the green notification bar lights up continously and then my phone asks for the unlock code.(i have the keypad lock code only set after 30 mins).

2.When am talking on the phone or during random time when am connected to the WLAN the phone suddenly switches off and i have to start it again by the regular method of holding the power button.

Then above two things have been happening for me often in the last two weeks.

And just for an info i use android apps through the google play.

forgot this there was like three occasions where my phone suddenly went from 40 to 30 % charge to 0 % in like a no time, i was connected on wlan which means whatsapp and then the phone suddenly came from 40% to 2% and then it said recharge battery. Once i had to recharge the phone , the next time when the charge drained that is from 35% to 0% in no time i just restarted my phone after a while and it showed my old percentage of charge. this was also mysterious thing that happened in the past two weeks.

Just shouting it out here to know what is wrong!..

you did not use the search function, did you? there are many of the same questions... in short: clean your battery contacts.

I have the same situation: I have been using the optional update for some time without any problem and all of a sudden the phone starts shutting down by itself and without any apparent pattern. At first I attributed the issue to prolonged usage for usb tethering, however cleaning the battery contacts with a rubber (as suggested in this question did the trick.

While I appreciate you posting this Leinad, it amazes me that people accept this as an answer at all.

Rubbing the battery terminals/contacts - makes it sound like a car with a furry battery connection, causing intermittent shorts. In which case, the materials that the battery are made from, are not suitable for purpose - next, people will be suggesting a drop of Vaseline on the battery terminals to prevent them 'furring up' - what a joke! (luckily, I have suffered with NONE of the array of problems most seem to get with their Jolla).

But to recap, I find it sad and laughable that 'rubbing contacts on the battery' is to be construed as a 'fix'??, wow. I think not. More like the goods are not of a merchantable quality, nor fit for purpose and yet you can buy another one of these little nightmares from Jolla store for a cool €25, better buy a box of rubbers as well (and I don't mean something for the weekend!) Unlike?, mmmm, that's becoming more apparent everyday - Unreal, more like.
