    Default Inaccurate charge indicator

    The charge indicator in the notification bar has begun showing that the phone is fully charged while it's plugged into the charger, but then when I unplug it, it immediately drops to the accurate reading, which may only be 85 percent. If I plug it back in, it shows charging again until it reaches a full charge, which may or may not be true. I sometimes have to reconnect it to the charger as many as three times to actually get a full charge. Also, while charging overnight, the phone will start randomly giving the charger connected "chirp," sometimes once, sometimes over and over, even though the charger status has not changed. To stop it, I have to physically disconnect and reconnect the charger. The battery sometimes seems to drain faster than it used to, but it's hard to tell; it could be my imagination. Has anyone else had this problem? Is this the sign of a failing battery?

    Try a new battery. You can find many 3rd party batteries for under $10. After a year of hard use my original battery is kaput. It doesn't last 20 minutes and the battery indicator gives improper status. Another battery works fine for me.
