Brand new 8320 user with battery question
 
I bought a used 8320 for the sole purpose of using the UMA over my wifi to make free calls from home.

Yesterday was the 1st day with the phone and I left it on overnight, plugged in to the wall charger (not a blackberry charger, but an after-market one)

When I woke up this morning the BB was dead... solid red light on. Managed to get it charging after much ado, but I don't know why it didn't keep charging over night...

Then today I noticed something.... when its plugged into the wall you get the charging icon on the display, but that goes away after awhile... battery shows 100% charged...

Is it supposed to stop charging when it gets to 100%?

Should it have stayed at 100% if it was plugged in?

Blackberrys do not like chargers that are not specifically for them. Are you sure it is designed for a BB?

You need to get a charger that is designed for BB's

It cant charge pasty 100%. If the charge when under to 100% to 99%, it would charge it back to 100%

so... this is NOT a normal 8320 behavior?
