Samsung Galaxy S III bursts into flames and melts through its own casing

This is too bad for Samsung to start the U.S. launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III with this news.  Now of course defects happen all the time as nothing is perfect, but wow the timing of this couldn’t be worse.

Hi, 

So I driving along today with my Galaxy S3 in my car mount when suddenly a white flame, sparks and a bang came out of the phone. 

I pulled in to look at my phone, the phone burned from the inside out. Burned through the plastic and melted my case to my phone. The phone kept working but without any signal. 

I brought it to the carphone warehouse and they told me that they couldnt replace it for me that they had to send it off to be checked out first. No even replacement phone, left with nothing. 

The phone was destroyed and it slightly burned a piece of plastic on the inside of my car. 

And they are refusing to give me a replacement they had to send it off. Probably nothing I can do, but Im really annoyed. That could have burned the side of my face or through my pocket and my leg, or set fire to my bed. Its very dangerous
