Thanks for the replies.
I checked all running processes/apps but couldn't see the Dialler app running. I did shut quite a few background running apps but this hasn't made any difference.
On Friday night I managed to get the phone charged to 100% but only when the phone was powered off. The battery didn't last more than 12 hours and I noticed that if I was running an app/game for 5mins the phone would get hot around the camera lens. I didn't use the phone for any data/wifi or calls during Saturday but the battery just ran dry. It normally takes 2 days before it reaches 20-25% and needs a charge.
I tested the battery in my other halfs S2 and it charges normally in her phone. Her S2 battery experiences the same issue in my phone so it rules out a battery problem. ZDBox also reports that the battery temperature increases from 28 degrees to 46 and the voltage also increases from 3.480v to 3.9v.
Saturday night I ensured that all radio signal features were off, i.e. Wifi/Bluetooth and GPS. Shut the phone down and removed the battery for 5mins as suggested in other posts. I switched the phone on with it plugged in and noticed it was now charging. Left it overnight where it charged fully. The battery lasted 30 hours with slight more usage than Saturday.
Today Monday, I get the same charging problem when plugged into the mains or USB.
To get to reset the phone back to factory settings, can anyone recommend the best method to backup my data? It's not rooted so I can't use Titanium.
I would need to backup contacts, sms', music, photos, videos, apps, app data and anything else that's vital before a reset.
