    Battery status a big question mark.

    For some reason whenever I start to charge, or I stop charging, my battery status is grayed out, a question mark appears, and I have no idea how my battery life is.

    I'm not sure how long this occurs, but it does go away after a while, but I'd rather not have it happen.

    Anyone know the issue?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Never heard of that problem yet. I would bring it right back and show vzw. Try a battery pull too.

    I don't mean to Hijack this tread, but my question is related. How can you tell how much battery life is left exactly? it would be nice to know in percent or some gradient of the battery indicator? I have heard there is an app that is a better battery meter but i haven't found it.

    Download a battery widget, there are many in the apps > tools section in the app market.
    Resistance is futile.

    I use CurveFish Battery Life widget to display battery life on my left home screen. You can set it up to color code based on percentage and it's FREE!

    BatteryLife v1.3.3 Application for Android | Tools

    In the phone settings its Menu > Settings > About Phone > Status (2nd line is battery)

    While that does give the battery information, I believe the request was more along the lines of something that doesn't require hunting it down nearly as much.

    I use Battery Widget myself, it is a 1x1 widget for a rough aproximation, and I think the one stigy links is a color gradient but a 2x1 Widget.

    Correct mine is a 2x1 widget, but is a very nice looking one.

    It gives me Battery Life, Battery Diagram, Temperature, Voltage and Status.

    Battery Icon shaded question mark

    This was easy. Clean the battery contacts on both the battery and the phone. That should eliminate the shaded question mark, if not then most likely the battery is bad.

    I have this issue

    It happens when I use third party batteries.
    It won't let me charge them from the phone. I have an external charger which I love and works great. Its a trade off I guess. Cheap batteries that work fine but no support for them on the phone without using some type of app.
