    On my Captivate replaced my battery a couple of weeks ago as my stock battery was starting to act flakey - I've had the same Captivate and stock battery for just over a year now.

    Scenario -
    phone on, plug in charger
    then turn phone off
    get green battery showing green way down as battery is charging.
    almost 6 hours later the green battery indicator looks as though it's actually decreased with the phone off.

    I've tried calibrating per the instructions posted but when I get to the part where you're supposed to turn the phone off and let it charge up - the green battery indicator gets close to, but never to the 100% mark. Very strange.

    Any thoughts?
