    A little backstory: This all started a few days ago after I uninstalled and downloaded some apps. I'm not sure if it's related, but who knows.

    Anyway, I uninstalled that popular flashlight app that needs access to your entire phone/accounts for some reason. Shortly after, I tried downloading the NoBloat Free app to get rid of some unwanted stock apps. My phone immediately shut down as I tried to download it. I powered it back on but it shut down after about 30 seconds at the home screen.

    I figured it may be a battery issue, so I charged the phone up to 100% (it was at about 75% at the time) and took it off the charger. It stayed on for a while but without warning shut off about two hours later. I restarted the phone normally a few times just in case, but again, nothing.

    This morning I decided to factory reset the phone, but this didn't do anything. Now, regardless of if it's at 100%, it will shut down unless I have it hooked up to a charger.

    Could it be a battery issue? If so, I'll be headed to my local AT&T today to see if they have any for this specific phone. I'd like to add that it has been dropped a few times. None were so hard that the screen broke, but who knows.

    If it works when the charger is connected, but not for long on the battery alone, that does suggest a failing battery. Or to be more precise, that's what it suggests to me.
