Default Battery only charging to 35%?

Please Login to Remove!

I am using a BB Bold 9000 on AT&T with the 4.6.0.247 OS. Why does my battery not charge past 35%? I have tried using my wall charger and connecting it to the computer.

Let the battery drain until the phone completely dies. Then plug it in and fully charge it. See what it says after that.

I did a battery pull and it jumped up to 55% but I will let it die and see what happens. Thanks!

I thought that with the newer devices you don't want to completely let it drain as tha could hurt the battery? Maybe someone can clarify

I've done it a few different times and I've had no issues with the battery.
