    Weird overnight charging

    Plugged my phone in last night to charge and woke up this morning to find battery at 0%, and none of the widgets working properly - the ScreenMode icon disappeared, no time or weather in Beautiful Widgets. After a few minutes they all came back on and the battery went to 100%. I then tried to type a text and no letters came up. I waited a few seconds, then it started working. What the hell is going on? The battery cover is not loose and it is a Blackberry charger.

    Between this, static on calls, and missing text messages, this phone is getting kind of annoying,

    Charging through your computer or plugged into the wall?

    Well i would say call verizon on this one, or take it to the store to see what they advise. With what your describing, it is definitely very odd. I would want a new phone asap if that didn't stop.
    Resistance is futile.

    just curious as to why you're using the BB charger and not the OEM one. you should always use the OEM charger, especially with this phone.

    Well this might seem silly but I woke up to the phone at like 10% battery after it was plugged into the wall with the factory charger all night.

    Turns out I hadn't plugged it in properly and it was at a little bit of an angle. Always check the light on the side and that the icon and switched to the charging one.

    Past that do what they said and call Verizon and use a factory charger.

    X2 on this. I've plugged in the charger and it usually goes in crooked - and doens't charge the phone. I have to snap it down so it is -| instead of \| like that. I've gotten used to it though so it never happens anymore.

    those little hooks on the micro USBs are going to give lots of people problems. what's weird is my wife's phone doesn't seem to care about the hooks as much as mine do. thats why i like the multimedia dock. goes right in, no clipping required.

    you should really use the charger that came with the phone instead of your BB charger.

    There's been multiple threads on Rogue Droids when different chargers were used on them. Might want to stick to what was given.
