    I seem to have disabled the battery percentage indicator
    that was previously displayed while the phone was charging.
    It used to say '95%. Charging' and now it says only 'Charging'.
    Does anyone know how to bring the percentage back? I have
    the H7 firmware.

    yeah, it's not present in "settings -> about phone -> status" either
    I use "useful switchers" to see the battery level.

    The new firmware got rid of that.

    If you want to know the battery percentage in real time, you either install "Spare Parts" or type *#*#INFO#*#* in the Dialer.

    Cool, what other codes are known? Is there a listing somewhere?

    (Note for non-USians: "*#*#INFO#*#*" means to key in "*#*#4636#*#*")

    *#1234# will give you the current PDA and Phone firmware version number (I don't know the difference between the two).

    *2767*3855# will do a hard reset (YOU'LL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA!!)

    I haven't heard of any others though.

    Hi,
    I am very curious though...
    why on earth would this battery percentage indicator be removed?
    I mean, its clearly quite essential (or at least to my appreciation), as the battery indicator is quite useless as is, and I don't know of any other smartphone that doesn't give you battery indications...
    of course one can install applications for that, but I am always worried about battery consumption of these things, and this kind of thing should certainly have better UI integration.
