Default Pearl Battery Life - Wont Charge over 95%

Please Login to Remove!

Just picked my pearl up last Saturday and the battery life seems to be pretty weak on it. I charge it overnight, but the status doesnt go above 95%.

Almost everyday, the battery is on its last leg by 7:00pm. And I work in an office all day where I barely use my phone.

Does this seem normal? Is my battery defective?

Try letting the phone completely die, then plug it in and leave it until it's fully charged.

LOL. I posted the same exact problem earlier this morning. My status was stuck at 95%. So I switched outlets and it fixed the problem.

I dont think its my outlet as my 8700 charger was plugged into the same one. Worth a shot however.

Default This might be obvious

Make sure bluetooth is off. With bluetooth on, I have drained my pearl battery on standby in 1 day.

I sure hope there's an update to fix the bluetooth drain. It would be nice.
