    I've been keeping the phone plugged into the wall charger all night when I sleep, and by the time I hit lunch hour the battery is nearly dead. I've had it hooked up to my USB port for nearly 8 hours and the battery is still only 10%, and as i post this thread i got a message "Battery is low. the charging current is not enough for device power consumption. please switch to AC power" I nly have a USB cable here at the office.

    is this low current USB the cause of poor charging? the phone is getting very warm too.

    thanks.

    Try a different port first. I had to re seat the cable on my work laptop before. Also, if you haven't done a hard reset, search the forum for how to's, and do that. That's helped quite a few people with battery life.

    I had this similar problem. Mine would say Discharging (Menu/Settings/about Phone/Battery...) Turn your phone off and let it charge. then power it back on after an hour see if that works. I brought mine into sprint and got a Replacement phone shipped over night. HW 0002 was having the Issue. new phone shipped with HW 0003.

    well is it connected to your PC as Charge Only? you can tell by pulling down the notification bar while plugged in
