    Are you charging over USB or through the mains?

    USB doesn't charge with anywhere as much current as through the mains, meaning it charges a lot more slowly, especially when you're doing things on the phone at the same time.

    Charge it through the mains and you won't have this problem.

    when i get home (where the main is) i will charge it with it, is it going to make a big difference? in other words, from 0%-100% how long should it take on a normal basis? im just trying to make sure the phone/battery i got does not need replacement. thanks for the help

    I can't be 100% sure as I haven't timed it, but I'm pretty sure my battery went from ~15% to 100% in less than two hours last time my battery was low.

    I usually charge my phone overnight so it's always 100% when I wake up.

    I do know that charging at the mains is a hell of a lot faster than over USB though. I get about 12% an hour over USB.

    The battery issue is resolved with 2.3.4 update.
