Hey I have the same exact problem. I leave it charging overnight and when I wake up the charge is complete but the phone is off. I am having my 3rd phone sent to me now so if yours is doing this and mine is doing this the problem might be the only thing that they haven't tried which is our batteries. We need to combine forces because when I called Samsung and Verizon today they claimed they have never heard of this problem. If I could reference your account and you mine as a defence I do not think we should have trouble getting replacement batteries.

Not for nothing but I don't think there is a problem with any of your phones. I also have the U740 and I have gone through many makes and models of phones over the years at Verizon and I never kept any phone on while it was charging. You state that the phone powers off a short time after while plugged in and it charges then says complete? Well, I think this is normal operation. If you have your phone plugged in overnight while it is on and then shuts down to charge and when you wake up you have a complete charge. I think that is a pretty cool feature to have being I wouldn't want to accidentally be woken up in the middle of the night because some knucklehead decides to call me. I would Like the phone to automatically shut down and charge for me. After all, you have the phone plugged in and powered on because you obviously want it to charge right? So, the phone is doing just that. Besides, the phone charges a lot faster if you keep it off to charge. It only takes less than two hours to get a complete charge so I don't think you'll have to worry about missing any important calls during that time.
