HTC One V won't charge past 68%!
Re-posting this from the HTC One V forum because the VM forum is more active overall:
I bought an HTC One V for Virgin Mobile. I haven't activated it yet, but I've been using it on WiFi and getting it all set up (downloading apps, getting used to the phone, adding contacts, setting up email, etc.).
I noticed 2 days ago that it was weird that the phone didn't last me all day without a charge, but I assumed it was the phone "getting used to my habits", as I've read about. Last night around 5pm I turned the phone off, put it on the charger, and left it alone. Around 10pm I turned it back on and it was only at 68% charged. I thought, whatever, it'll charge by morning, and left it on (screen off). This morning at 4:30am I looked at the Battery screen (in Settings) and it said "68% - discharging" !!!! I unplugged it from the wall and got "68% - not charging", which is to be expected. Then I plugged it back in and it says "68% - charging". It has been plugged in since then (about 90 minutes) and it hasn't charged any further.
Any ideas? I'm running a standard phone here, no rooting or whatever. I am using the wall charger that came in the box from Virgin Mobile.
