I have had this happen several times now (had my Tour since the week they launched). It seems to only happen with a car charger.
No lightening bolt on the battery indicator
Very hot to touch the Tour (even through my silicone case)
If I reset tour, viola, the problem seems to clear itself.
When you charge the Tour, it gets mildly hot, but if the temperature inside your car is hot itself, the Tour gets hotter. So the device will not charge as it reaches a certain temperature so it won't overheat. Its protecting your Tour basically. At that's why the charging bolt goes away, its not charging at all at this point. I usually get this problem in my car, not so much at home. But when I do experience this problem, I shut the phone off for a few minutes, u will notice it cooling down pretty quickly. And then you can turn it on and plug in the charger and it'll begin charging. Try not to place the phone in direct sunlight in your car when charging it.
