This means it is probably not the battery (just received a new one) and also not the lint collecting in the plug (2 days old - no dirt in there yet). It actually started after I plugged it into my computer for the first time - when I unplugged it there was the charge signal on again without the phone being connected. I think this has something to do with firmware interacting with USB ports on W7 comps....not sure what else it might be at this point since the fact that it is 2 days old really puts everything else off the suspect list.
OR, you used the SAME usb cord and whatever was stuck inside it when this happened the first time it's also now in the new charging port.
