Launched in November 2008 by AT&T, the Quickfire GTX75 seems to have some serious quality problems.
More exactly, the touchscreen QWERTY handset can significantly overheat if you incorrectly insert the AC charger into its charging port.
And although there have not been reports of the device literally bursting into fire, this may happen. So it looks like the giant US carrier couldn’t have picked a better worse name for the handset.
Anyway, to prevent overheating the phone, AT&T warns customers to always charge it as seen in the image below (which is, in fact, the regular way of charging it):
Quickfire sales are now halted, and the device will probably never be available again – at least not in the current version.
