I had the same problem.

My phne will charge with the generic battery till 40% then it normally jumps to full.

When using the phone, and I get to about 70%, it shuts down and I have to battery pull. Battery life is terrible, 3 or 4 hours when in use.

I have 2 batteries, a new "generic" one and an original one which is pregnant/bloated.

My problem has now been sorted.

My steps:

1) Let my generic battery drain till phone switched off.

2) Plugged into PC with USB cable to charge a little, just below 20%.

3) Did a security wipe on the handset.

4) Plugged into PC again and did a wipe with BBSAK. Did this twice just to make sure I got all the suckers.

5) Installed OS barebone. Installed 6.0 Bundle 2534 (v6.0.0.570, Platform This is the latest OS for MTN South Africa, the network I'm on.

6) Its been a few days now, and haven't had problems.

I am going to try re-install the latest OS available soon, just going to make it run as it is for a few days.
