    I was going to wait for a moderator to inform you not to bump threads (as I don't want to encourage bumping) but I think there's a chance you may be using the wrong USB cable.
    Does the large (PC) end of the USb cable have a silver sticker on it that has 'U2' on it?

    Here, I just put this together to demonstrate:

    If you are using the right cable, then maybe the drivers are not installed or something.

    when its on locked screen, its says how much battery you have left. example, "5%".

    and even when the phone was charging, my battery level was keep going down. and i wasnt even using my phone. from 5%, it went to 1%, then it got shut down

    Well maybe you have apps running that is draining your battery while you charge. If it shows that is charging, then it is charging.
