I've had mine and the phone keeps frying out on me!

I don't know what the deal is with charging batteries and this phone or if its the adapter or what but this phone is bound to fry out when charging. I am on my third one right now going on my fourth just by chance Verizon called and said they are sending a new one out. What happens to me is when charging the battery meter freezes up and the battery gets red hot the plastic back door gets so hot you can actually ply the plastic into a different position and than the metal inside is steaming hot as well. Than i go to turn on the phone and it says invalid time/date reset and it gives me a option of yes or no but there is no problem with the time or date on the phone. The phone itself when working properly is a great phone great reception great features everything. What i did is i bought a dual desktop charger off of Verizons website for $39.99 and i will just be charging the batteries on that from here on out to prevent this problem. This phone takes the same standard and extended battery as the V710. I am also thinking of getting another phone for this account and just using this phone for over seas traveling i hope this information helps other people who have had this problem.
