My Samsung S7 has just started to crackle when I try and charge it, this is scaring me, also I get no notifications,then receive about 7 at once, my text messages are delayed sometimes by a day, my phone is only about 6 months old and on a plan.Help
Yeah, you may have proactively figured out that the battery is about to explode. Check for heat as it charges. Optus probably wont do anything until you get blown up.
One thing I can suggest, is to hasten the process a few times by discharing it using a game that keeps the phone on, like Auralux or Smash Hit, then charge it up again. Meanwhile keep the phone in a steel bucket.
Try Optus chat and see if it rings any alarm bells for them.
