    Exclamation Poor battery life / long recharge times..?

    Has anyone had problems with severely short battery life paired with extremely long recharge times? My phone charges from 0% to 100% in about 6 hours (my Blackberry charged from 0%-100% in about an hour and a half). Once I unplugged it at 100%, woke up the next morning and the battery was at 40%. Killed all tasks before unplugging. I find it unusual that the battery would drain 60% overnight without any use.

    Any ideas?

    Don't believe so. Used a TasKiller to close all programs, so unless they started themselves, they weren't running.

    Charging it by computer or wall charger?

    I found my computer doesn't charge as fast as my wall charger.

    Mine charged in about 30 mins

    Guess it's a bad battery. Tried both wall charger and computer charged and they are taking hours upon hours. I went back to my Verizon store today to ask for a replacement battery and they said since there have been no reports of bad batteries they can't just give me a new one. They said I could buy another one for $40.

    Then if your truely convinced the battery is bad, tell them the phone is screwed, give you a whole new one.

    I recommend you do the following. Take the charger, phone and battery to the Verizon Wireless store and demonstrate it. Simply stating it won't help at times.

    Im actually having the same battery issues. I had a 100% charge and 3 hours later (it was on standby in my pocket virtually the whole time) the battery died.
