    ok...Just bought this Samsung galaxy precedent. Why is it telling me the battery cannot charge because of an unsupported battery?

    If it's a Samsung battery, make sure you're using the Samsung cord. If it's not a Samsung battery, that could be the problem.

    Otherwise, it could be a bad battery or bad firmware. (Did anyone flash a ROM to it?)

    My Precedent works with the original battery and a Hyperion replacement. It works with most USB cords, but one or two have refused to charge it (or, rather, it's refused to be charged with them).

    Surprisingly, I used to find a lot of Motorola phones throwing that error on non-OEM batteries, back about 10-11 years ago.
