After receiving a number of reports about overheating handsets, AT&T has decided to warn owners of the Quickfire handset on how to properly use the phone's charging jack/port. AT&T plans to send an email and free SMS to Quickfire owners. It will say, "Please take special care when charging your Quickfire GTX75 mobile phone. There have been a few reports of significant overheating of the phone when the AC Charger adapter is inserted incorrectly and forced into the phone. The clearly marked, embossed arrow on the AC Charger adapter should always be face-up on the same side as the display screen of the Quickfire when it is inserted into the phone. See the diagram below for proper positioning and insertion of the AC Charger adapter into the phone. You should never force the AC Charger adapter into the phone." AT&T recently halted sales of the Quickfire. If phone makers adopt the GSMA-proposed standard phone charging port (microUSB), situations like this could be avoided because it is physically impossible to insert a microUSB plug in incorrectly.
