    Ok took the adive from someone else and posted this here too

    Ok my wife just got a droid Eris tonight and well i have a few questions that just seem to be a little odd to me first off the plug on it seems to be extremely sensitive like i have a hard time getting it to connect to a PC unless its in just the right spot and the next thing is that she will be using it and trying to be careful to not move the uber sensitive cord and all of a sudden it will stop charging and there will be a exclamation point over the battery what does that mean? i have looked in the manual and it doesn't show that icon in there. please help im due for one of these in a week and if these are gonna be some common problems its really gonna turn me off from the phone.

    I also discovered this last night when i was playing around with the phone the battery would get the exclamation point over it while not being plugged in im wondering if the battery isnt overheating maybe? i popped the back off to feel and it was warm but i wouldnt say that its overy warm thats for sure.

    are you sure its not the little lighting bolt rather then a exclamation point? i never saw or heard of a exclamation point there...

    i am most definitely sure its a exclamation point. the batter isnt green when this happens like it is when its on the charger. It turns gray and the led will blink from green to orange for a while then it will go away.

    The only thing I can imagine the little exclamation point over the battery would mean is bad connection or bad battery. Maybe the battery isn't connecting properly or holding onto a charge well. No matter what it is, this is a headache you don't want. If you are having that much trouble simply getting it connected to the usb/charging cable I would just take it back to the store. It isn't a common thing and you should take the phone back for replacement.
