    Hi all,
    I've had my Desire for just over a year, and for the past few months, I've been having some issues.
    First, the phone started shutting down at 40%, then in the mid 60s%, and now the phone will only stay switched on for about 30-60 seconds before shutting down saying it's out of charge, straight after a full charge (LED's green) whilst switched off
    Secondly, it has developed the habit of switching off instantly without even shutting down in mid-call, when browsing the net, etc.

    It's pretty much unusable now, how can I fix it? I tried recalibrating the battery to little effect, not sure what else to do.
    I'm sure I've seen threads on similar problems, but I can't seem to find them now, not sure if they were solved anyway..!

    I would greatly appreciate any help anyone could give! :thinking:

    Sounds like a battery issue or a faulty charger. I'd try a new battery then charger in that order.
