    For some reason my phone is always stuffing up.
    Anyways cause my wifi wasn't working i updated it to 2.3.5
    Then everything was working well until today (which is sunday)
    i charged it until it was 100%. Then did stuff with it.
    Then my friend did something to it (i think)
    After that the battery status was all stuffed uo.
    It said it was 23% then 80% and stuff like that.

    And now my battery is on 35%.
    Usually my battery lasts 2/3 days before i charge it.

    PLEASE could anyone help!!!!!
    THANK YOU!!!!!!

    (i heard that if you go into recovery and wipe battery status
    it could fix the problem??)
    Anyone did it before????????

    ANYWAYS THANK YOU!!!!!!

    Charge the phone for atleast 6 hours then boot to recovery, go to advanced then wipe battery status and say yes, and it should fix the issue.

    Just to add to that - make sure the phone is still connected to the charger when wiping the battery stats.

    That would seem like a hardware error, If I had to guess it seems like there is a short somwhere in the phone, it could be because the phone got wet somtime, that is probably the most common cause of shorts.

    Sounds like it needs to be sent to lg for repair, or if you bought insurance when you bought the phone I would suggest you go through them because if it is from somthing like water damage your warrenty will not cover it because it is classed as accidental damage and lg would charge you.
