Well here is the problem.. I put my charger into my Galaxy note.. charge it to 100% take the charger out.. and suddenly i hear a sound about 2 minutes after the charger is out. that sound is the sound that you hear when you plug the charget into the phone. so when its not charging.. the phone says it is charing.. and when its charging the phone says its not.. another problem is that if i dont have my charger in the phone when i start it up, it wont start.. it just goes "charging - not charging - charging - not charging" when the phone is off. i tried to take out the battery and let it stay out for 10 minutes, put it back in, no help. all these problems started after the ICS update a week ago. also the battery drains in just 1-2 hours of use (internett, a game or anything) or about 10 hours when the phone is "sleeping" it drains to about 10% i downloaded cpu spy and it says: 1200 MHz: 0:09:40 4% 1000 MHz 0:01:44 0% 800 MHz 0:01:13 0% 500 MHz 0:02:35 1% 200 MHz 3:22:09 91% Deep Sleep 0:03:06 1% Unused CPU states: 1400 MHz Total time state 3:40:31 i also downloaded a program to check my battery called Better Battery Stats that i paid about $2 for. at the start i had a program taking 99% battery non stop, that dissapeared when i removed my battery for a few minutes. my problem now is the "USB cb wake lock" "vbus_present" ^both taking 93,7% and Power manager service taking 51,7% Honestly i'd love to hear how to fix my Battery Drain problem and my Charging problem. Thanks in advance. VM.
