    So, got my Captivate yesterday.. first Android device (and loving it). Noticed something weird, when i went to bed last night it was at 50% battery, turned the phone off and plugged it in figuring it would charge overnight.. however when I turned it on this morning the battery was at 10%. Not sure if this was just a fluke or not (i'm assuming fluke since I don't see any other posts on it). Can't see why it wouldn't of charged, let alone drain the battery.. any ideas? I can assure you it was off all night..

    So does this phone only charge when on? Something specific to Android or just a fluke maybe something i should think about a return trip to at&t for? Gona see what happens tonight when I do the same thing.

    make sure the door over your USB port is ALL the way open (it clicks into place) and the cord is plugged all the way in.
    A lot of people have been posting problems with this.
    I suspect it wasn't charging all night.
    In settings>about phone, you can check how long it's been since it was last on the charger.
