A 13-year-old North Texas girl was awoken in the night by a smoldering cell phone on the other side of her pillow, but the cell phone manufacturer says she did something they warn users about.
Ariel Tolfree loves using her Samsung Galaxy S4. “It’s really like, nice and pretty,” said Tolfree. “It’s high tech.”Every chance she gets, she texts her friends and gets on social media apps like Instagram and Twitter.cBut during visit with her, she had to borrow her dad’s S3 phone, because her phone is burned so badly, it’s barely recognizable. ”The whole phone melted,” said her dad, Thomas. “The plastic, the glass.
