    Hi all. My phone keeps randomly vibrating, and the battery icon on the status bar keeps switching from charging to not charging, even though it isn't plugged in. Any ideas on what to do?

    If you haven't modded it in anyway and it has stock firmware then it's probably a warranty job with your mobile provider.

    Yeah warranty is probably best. That said I've had this happen, along with it constantly rebooting, somewhere around here there are a few threads talking about this I think. Anyway, as far as I can tell (in my case at any rate) all of these problems are related to the micro SD card. If you're using one try un-mounting it (or even taking it out) and see if the problem goes away. If it does you should be able to re-mount it and it'll start working properly again, then if you ever get the problem again just rinse and repeat. Can't promise that will work for you but it's a solution I found on another forum when I was having the problem so it certainly works for some people.

    Maybe its the USB port problem? Try cleaning it with a toothbrush. Else, guess there is always the option of trying to get it fixed under warranty.
