I apologize if this has been mentioned before, but I have had no hope with google, thus far..
My blackberry is only a year or so old (no warranty or replacement options) and has the following symptoms.
While plugged, the phone has no issues. After being unplugged, it will only drain to about 80%-90% until it shuts off without warning. The only way to have it turned back on is a battery pull, only to have it shut off again right after the services have been loaded (startup)
However, after being plugged in for only a moment, and unplugged, it will start up, resume the battery % it had before, and remain on for yet another 10-20%, until shutting off once again.
The time lasting can vary between only 5 minutes - multiple hours.
The problem has only started happening, and was not a progressive issue.
The following are options I have tried or plan to try:
-Not include sim card - no luck
-Not include memory card - no luck
-Reinstall OS - no luck (though it was a quick 'update' so it might not be a fresh install)
-Buy new battery - have yet to try (after looking at other peoples similar issues, i doubt this is the problem, and will be a last resort)
Has anyone had this problem? Any solutions? Possible causes?
Any input would be greatly appreciated! I love my blackberry, and I don't want to resort to a new apple diet..
