Apparently, battery can warp after 1-2 years of use if it is charged while phone is on or overcharged. Problem was solved when I bought a new battery. Lesson learned was to charge only when near empty and with phone turned off for improved battery life.
Nope. Not helpful at all.
Whatever caused the battery to become malformed, it was not because of charging while the device is on, and the device will not overcharge the battery.
Also, routinely running the battery all the way down is bad for long term battery life with lithium ion batteries. Posted via BlackBerryForums.com Mobile
