    Angry Phone says it's charging when it's not plugged in.

    So I don't know how it happened, but after unplugging my phone from my computer, it thinks it's charging all the time, even when unplugged. I've tried everything to fix it, clearing battery stats with CWM, a complete nanroid restore, swapping batteries, you name it.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of what could be causing it? Between the bugs and the pathetic battery life, I'm rapidly approaching my wits end with this phone.

    Maybe you'll get infinite battery life now!

    I have had a similar issue, my 1 yr old son grabbed the phone and put the end with the usb port in his mouth. Must have crossed the streams somehow... It took S days but it got better all by itself.

    Happened to me too and went away in just about the same amount of time.

    Problem solved. I just let the phone completely discharge the battery, and that corrected it.

    My friends cat spilled Apple juice on my replenish, and it started doing that. It wouldnt turn on for 6 hours, and i couldnt charge it. After that it wouldnt stop saying it was charging when it wasnt, It kept making the noise, and the vibrate. I let my phone sit there for 3 hours and it stopped by itself. After that the battery got stuck at 100% when it was at like 50%.. I let it sit and it fixed that. Only problem Im having now is when i drop my phone, the battery falls out( chipped the cover) and My phone goes to 1% after being powered back on and it slowly regains its power to what it was. Only way to fix it is to plug it into the charger let it charge for about 10 minutes, turn it on and then unplug it. These could happen to your phone :O so just telling you what you should do.

    My son's phone and mine both did that. Turned out to be a bad wire on connecting the port to the motherboard. Required a new phone. Local reseller (non-Sprint-owned store) did the swap for $35. Mine was rooted - no questions asked.

    I've had same problem as reported by many others with phone displaying charge icon when not plugged in. I've tried all the recommended solutions. Here's what I've found:

    1. Not related to JellyBean update (it happened just after I updated but turns out to be coincidence)
    2. Factory reset or flashing doesn't help (it's a hardware problem)
    3. Clean out the USB port (there's all kinds of fluff, dirt, lost keys, foreign coins etc in there!) - don't use soapy water for this...
    4. Bend the pins (gently) so that they are located in the centre of the port.

    In my case it's the charging cradle I was using that was damaging the port. I'm using a flip-case on my phone which means the phone doesn't fit in the cradle properly and I was having to force it to sit on the connector. The pins had become bent and were shorting out against the edge of the port.

    That happened to me and I thought, "Ooo infinite battery now!" but when I woke up in the morning the battery was at 5% because it was loosing power, but wasn't showing it.
