Default Simple Battery Question

Please Login to Remove!

When your unit is either plugged into the wall or into your computer does the battery meter change to show that it's charging?

I got a storm the other day and the battery always shows 100% charged and it never changes when I plug it in.

The phone also dies very quickly when not plugged into something and it constantly reboots itself after about 3-5 minutes of being on. I'm sure the battery isn't charging (I've tried two different batteries).

Could this be OS problem? It really seems to be a "phone unit" issue and maybe I should return it.

Any thoughts?

Yeah you should get a lightning bolt over the battery bars when being charged. I tend to get 2 days medium-heavy usage out of a full 12 hour charge. Im guessing anything less than 12 hours with heavy usage would require swapping or new battery and possibly looking at your operating system and current applications.

You might also try inspecting and cleaning the battery contacts on bith the device and the battery itself.

Sounds like it could be a moisture issue or some kind of short...I'd exchange it for a new one.
