Default 7290 Chargin Errors or not?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello im writing this on behalf of a mate at work.

he has recently brought a 7290 of ebay.

he plugged the phone in as normal and 20 hours later the phone was only 85% charged.

he was told by the person he brought it off that the phone needs to be charged drained and recharged in order to behave normally.

is this right as im picking up a scent of BS on this.

cheers guys.

The discharge-and-recharge routine is supposed to "recondition" batteries. Some folks say it's particularly important with new electronics to ensure maximum battery life. It's worth a try on this new (old) 7290, but it may be the case that your mate will need a new battery. Advise him that if he does need a new battery, do not get some cheap-o chinese knockoff. Get one from a reputable dealer like siedioonline.com, or even directly from RIM. Cheap batteries do horrible things.

As Rambo47 said, the 7290 is rather old and if it is the original battery, it would be surprising that it takes a charge at all.

You need to search the forums first.

If you cannot find your answer, then, and only then, create a new thread with your question.

It is bad etiquette to post an unrelated question in an old thread.
