My phone keeps draining my phone's battery
I currently own a Galaxy S2 T989 (T-mobile). I got my Samsung phone during the summer time, and just last week I have been experiencing problems with it. On a regular basis I charge me phone before I go to bed, so in the morning I can have it fully charged. One day during school I went to go check my phone and it was completely dead, even though I remember it being adequate charged. So when I went home I plugged it in to charge. But once it was charged it would die within 30 hours. And when I would plug it in it would blink the charging symbol on the screen, having trouble connecting and I tried another charger it was better because using the other charger it would actually charge but takes like about 4 hours to charge it . So I went on Ebay and bought another battery. And the same problem is persisting with the new battery. It takes forever to charge fully, and once it does charge fully it dies within 30 min now. Even the phone drains the battery even when I have the phone off, and heats up even when it's off. And I have already tried factory reset, and currently have no apps downloaded, I also have no pictures wife is off etc. If you know what the problem is or have a solution to the problem I would be very grateful. I really don't want to buy a new phone since this is already a semi new phone Please and thank you!

Re: My phone keeps draining my phone's battery
Sounds like you have a hardware problem on your hands. Before doing anything. Turn off your phone, try removing and re-installing battery (if possible) and see what happens. If you need repairs, I wish for that you don't need to send it in to an "authorized service center" as terrible as the one in my area... I bought my better half's teen a Samsung Galaxy Ace IIx, it died after 5 months, it wouldn't connect to the network, even after hard reset. We sent it out for repairs, and after 2 months of waiting, the phone came back, but miss-assembled, the handset no longer had a power button! Off to repairs it went back.
It's been close to 5 months, and still counting. E-mailed to Samsung to complain about their "authorized" service. All I got was an automated "thank you for writing" generic E-mail, and never managed to speak or exchange about this with anyone about my grievances."All information is imperfect. We have to treat it with humility."
