    Are your battery indicators accurate because mine looks like it could be about 75% but then when I go to status it says 51% percent and I know that the indicator in the top right hand corner is not showing 51%. Is anyone else having this problem?

    I think that's just how the indicator works. It doesn't drop down to 50% bar until 50%. So all the way down to 51% you still get a battery indicator that shows 75%. Misleading cause if you're not paying attention and the indicator sits at 50% for a while, you could actually be near 25% with no charger nearby.....I just know that if it's showing 50% full, I either start looking to charge it or lay off the internet surfing.

    You could get an app like 'battery indicator' from the market that gives you a numerical indicator of the % battery remaining which is right on target.....and you'll know exactly where you are.

    Haha I see ya because now its at 46% with it showing 50 on the indicator and I'm doing all this from the phone so that's another reason for the battery drainage

    The battery indicator isn't accurate, plus it's way too small without a numerical value.
    I got a battery indicator widget and it's great.
