    Ive had my phone unplugged all day and every time it goes down from 100 down to around 90% i take the battery out and put it back in and it goes bakc up to 100%.

    It seems to take the same amount of time to get back down to 90% and i have been on it for most of the morning. Am i getting crazy battery life or what is going on???
    Thanks!

    No, you are just tricking the Battery calibration system into thinking there is more juice there than it realizes.

    You don't even have to take the battery out. Just reboot the phone and you'll see a 10-15% jump in battery.

    Leave it long enough and it will cycle and self test itself, then you'll see the battery suddenly drop to the real level.

    The kinetic energy of moving the battery is being converted to chemical energy inside the battery.
