My Samsung Droid Charge shuts off when taking picture, trying to get on the Internet and sometimes randomly with minimal use. Do I need to replace the battery?
Hi there Lochbuie!
Oh well we can't have your phone shutting off every time you try to use it! I will be delighted to provide some suggestions.
First, I would recommend putting your phone into Safe Mode and testing to ensure it's not being caused by a 3rd party application.
If it still happens in safe mode we would want to ensure it's not a software glitch. This would require a hard reset:
Please ensure your media & contacts are backed up first!
Please let us know if this works.

Please try this BEFORE you do a Hard Reset. Put your phone on the charger and when the battery is charged to 90% or more, but NOT to 100%, use your phone to see if it still shuts off. By the way I do not want the battery to be at 100% because I want the charger to still be charging.
What I am trying to do is to see if your battery may be the problem.
BTW, buying a new battery is far less painful than re-building your phone after a Hard Reset. If it were my phone I would FIRST buy a new battery.
