    Has anyone ever mysteriously gained battery back while off charge, it's happened a few times since I got my phone in June, and it isn't a big gain, it's like occasionally if you have say 90% battery and then it dips to 89%, if you take data off, a lil while after you will be back at 90%

    It's super random and rare but has anyone else had this happen before? I kno its happened to me at least 3 times

    lol well ive never noticed it if it has happened and i have a huge luminous percentage in my statusbar.
    wonder if any of the more-geeky-than-us ones can explain this lol.
    p.s, have you calibrated your battery indicator since flashing CM? youre supposed to man

    Likely the IM client is the same as OZ on Windows Mobile in that it is partially SMS based. In other words, it will only work on T-Mobile.

    Looks like it's time for you to go peruse the android market!
    How do I calibrate it?

    Also, why do I need to calibrate it?

    The battery reading isn't really that exact. Readings will fluctuate.

    I guess that makes the most sense because in theory, how can you gain battery percentage back without some form of charging, lol

    I actually like that feature. Mine does that all the time. Say I take it off the charger @ 50% five minutes later it will be 53-54%.

    think theres a manual way but theres an app to make it easier. search Battery Calibration on play store mate. think theres an app for non rooted (it recalibrated my indicator by 8%!) and one for rooted devices that i think is better

    In fact for years many manufacturers only showed battery usage in 10% increments to hide these fluctuations.

    Oh ok, but why do I need to recalibrate it? Then stats seem pretty accurate to me and I'm using 3 different battery apps, lol

    not sure man. maybe because the new rom uses power differently. check the description of Battery Calibration app (top of the list) and the reviews from s3 owners (other than the two noobs who obv arent rooted).
    i think if calibration is wrong u can end up getting less battery life coz when the phone THINKS its at almost 0%, it must allow itself enough power to shut down properly unlike dumbphones that just died

    There are no galaxy s3 reviews for it.

    But I don't think I need it anyway, my battery had been perfect since romming
