battery dies with no warning
Hello everyone! This will be my first post on this site! Excitement! (And yes, I am a trumpet player, to clear all the questions lol)
So here is my problem:
My phone, the LG APEX (this is the LG ALLY sister phone, just through U.S. Cellular), dies before it even has a low battery, sometimes it might even die at 99% (sometimes it might die at 70% (it is ALWAYS a high percent when it dies however)) when it is off of the charger. I will charge it for long periods of time, and pretty much as soon as I take it off, it dies, and when I turn it back on, the phone says that the battery has no charge (less than 5% usually) and then it dies again in a matter of minutes) and the only way to keep the phone on is to keep it on the charger.
first bought through U.S. Cellular in June 2011
Lifetime calls: 26H:49M:32S
Calls this month (up until June 27 2012): approx. 2 hours... MAYBE.
Texts this month: 531
Internet usage this month: 3.66GB
number of apps: 27 apps on SD card, 14 apps in internal storage
total storage space: internal: 152.38MB Card: 3.68GB
(okay, I tried to add as much stats as I could think of to hopefully help the situation)
I use my phone quiet a bit, especially for facebook and texting, but other than that, I don't make many calls, and I don't use it much. I use it a bit for a wifi hotspot as well (but while it's on the charger, of course)
I've experienced this problem with my battery for about a whole month now and I'm looking for any help I can get, or if someone thinks it is best to factory reset my phone...?
Help? maybe? please? :P
