Just got the Storm (just like new from eBay), but the strangest thing happens. I let the phone charge a few hours lastnight, everything seems to work flawlessly, then I unplug it from the wall and it completely just dies after a few minutes althought the battery power says 100% (I checked under status). The only way to get it on again is to connect the wall charger and I get the completely dead battery icon (battery with lightening) for about 10 minutes then it starts this weird cycle of trying to reboot over and over.
I can only get it to properly start if I take the charger cord out when it's rebooting and then put it back in after a minute or so so it doesn't die.
As long as it's plugged in it works great. I have to believe it's the battery, or at least I am hoping it's the battery so it's a simple matter of ordering a new one.
I'm in the Bahamas and getting a replacement Storm is near impossible. (I did realize that the phone is still using .65 OS - not sure if that matters)
Any help would definitely be appreciated.
