so I plugged it back in... and a minute later it says 100 percent again.
then, when I unplugged it, it said 48 percent charged.
why is this happeniing? any fixes? this is, by the way, my second phone- the first was classified doa, and replaced... I have only a few days left in my 30 days...
eta- on battery info, it now says:
battery status- full, battery level 43, and this is while on ac plug.
Couple things you could try and probably already did. Pull the battery out for 10 seconds or so, put it back in and reboot.
I know you said battery status, but exactly which app or widget are you using. They should all be the same but all info will be helpful at this point.
I'd also recommend draining the battery to 0% and having it power itself off and then fully charge. If that doesn't fix it, we'll re-evaluate.
Also does this phenomenon occur with both usb charging as well as AC?
