    I smashes my iPhone for the last time last week so I traded for a galaxy nexus.

    BEST IDEA EVER. Anyway, the phone almost always thinks its charging.
    Today at work to save battery life I popped the battery out a little but it was still in the phone I guess because I was at 14% after work.
    Now it wont stop going back and forth between charging and discharge and pops up with the plug in warning. Had to buy a charging pack just to get home!

    Virgin wireless guy said try reloading the software... where is my restore button?(jk)

    I doubt it's software related

    Unfortunately, that's probably not a battery issue, but instead a USB port issue.

    My phone thinks its charging ALL THE TIME

    I solved mine by gently(!) nudging the little nib up to straighten it, and haven't had any problems since.

    Yeah, I think that's how I messed mine up too. Blame me trying to charge after a night at the pub. :-)
