| | Weird battery issue with Curve
Please Login to Remove!
I've had my Curve since November. Every now and then, I notice it's very warm while just sitting there - in a pocket, on a table, etc. When this happens, the battery runs down VERY fast. I can go from full charge to zero within an hour or two, with no use. I know the heat is probably from the higher discharge rate, so it's an effect rather than a cause. But why does this happen at all?
When I notice it happening, the only thing that seems to fix it is to pull the battery, let it and the phone cool off for a few minutes, and put it back in. This works about 85% of the time, but the rest of the time I have to do it again to get it to stop.
Anyone else have this? T-mobile sent me a new battery, but that one wouldn't even charge.
