T-Mobile Phone Gets Hot, Starts Smoking, and Explodes One Month After Purchase

By B.N. Frank

So many wireless devices – so many reports about them overheating, catching fire and exploding (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

Here’s another one:

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT/CBS Newspath/WKRC) – A woman in Huntsville purchased a cellphone from T-Mobile only to have it explode less than a month later.

“It started smoking… I’m like oh, oh!” explained Shirley Lane.

She had been lying down, talking to a family member on the phone, which wasn’t plugged into a charger.

“I noticed that it had got hot. Then, you know there is always a warning before destruction. After it got hot, it started burning my hand. I threw it out of my hand on to the bed,” said Lane.

Has anyone thought to start selling fire extinguishers along with smartphones?  It might not be a bad idea to have one around – at least while driving.
