Default FYI: Radio switches off at 15% battery level

Please Login to Remove!

FYI: I am finding that the radio switches off at the 15% battery level, so if you are at the 20% mark you had better recharge it if you want the phone to keep working.

I have never paid attention to how much battery I have left when the radio shuts off. I am going to have to do that next time and see.
