    phone says charge is 100% but when unplugged it goes to as low as 90%.

    This started happening after i installed 2.3. I tried bump charging it and it will get to 100% but if i leave the phone running while charging it, it will go to about 96% then jump to 100%. So as soon as i unplug it, it jumps from 100% back to 96%.

    Any ideas?

    Phone is unrooted.

    The battery actually stops charging once it reaches 100%, but the percentage doesn't updated until you unplug it. I'm not sure at what point it starts charging again, but this means that if you leave it plugged in a while after hitting 100% it's going to drain just as if you had un plugged it.

    You might also want to try "recalibrating" the battery: Recalibrate The Battery - CapFAQ
