    Ill cut to the chase. I plug my phone in and it says its charging, but the battery level still goes down. I unplug it and it doesn't still say it charging. I can still connect to my computer but the phone wont charge at all. Ive switched batteries out from my wifes phone, and Ive been using her phone to charge my battery. Any idea on whats going on?


    My phone is rooted, but running stock 2.3.6 with link2sd installed.

    This happened on my wife's Admire on multiple occasions. The first couple times, we reset the phone and all was well (other than having to put all her info back in each time). The third time reset did nothing for it. Metro refused warranty because there also happened to be a crack in the glass (diamond earring, not dropped). Since I was too stubborn to concede defeat and just buy a new one, we spent 2 months swapping batteries each time I charged mine. Then, out of nowhere, hers just started working again and has been fine since (over 2 months now). This doesn't help you in the least as far as WHY it happens (we never found out), but if you just keep plugging along it will eventually start working again.

    I'm also having a problem similar to this. My phone is dead and it says it's charging but stays at 0%. I don't have any money for a new phone right now so help would be appreciated

    All you need is a pocket freezer and you're gtg :D I personally would NOT run a defective battery in any device. Cooling the circuitry in the freezer is a temporary fix but the underlying problem is still there. You could risk permanent damage to the charging system, logic board, etc. The cost of a new battery or charging port is much less than a new phone. This is of course just my humble opinion.
