I'm currently trying to figure out my battery issue with vengeance. I'm trying things methodically in order to hone in on the actual source of the problem. and during my research I discovered that most people seem to have gotten their phone with a red battery that matches the inside of the phone. MINE did not. Now I'm sure that the color of the battery does not matter for performance, but I do wonder what it would tell me about my phone, which could contribute to such an issue. LIKE: 1 was it in fact a new phone? 2 was my replacement phone new? 3 if not, was my memory card new?(I kept my original card when the phone was replaced. I had very similar issue with the 1st phone) You can imagine the multitude of things that could be wrong with my phone contributing to my battery issues based on the answers to these questions. I'm trying everything I can to solve the issue 1 item at a time. This way if I locate the problem/solution I will know what it was. doing everything wholesale would not be very telling if I were to see a change in performance. I continue to read within the forums, and welcome any and all useful input the members can offer. as well as any questions for me as I post results.
