Question mark on battery? Charging when not plugged in, huh?
So last night i thought it was pretty weird that my phone was acting up. I have my facebook contacts synced up and joined with my contacts on the phone and when i dont see profile pictures with my contacts when i'm text messaging i figure its just the silly facebook software. So i restarted the phone. Great, that fixed it, profile pictures are on and everything is cool. Except the battery symbol had a question mark "?" in it and wasnt displaying how much battery was left. Then a tiny bluish pop up comes up saying that this battery isnt a manufactured motorola battery and to replace with the battery is came with. I scratched my head because i remember reading when i got the droid 4 that you couldnt (or weren't) suppose to take out the battery. Never did. This was weird to me. So i turned off the phone and turned it back on 15 minutes later. All was good finally.
The phone gets to about 20-30% and i'm at work, so i decided to charge it. I didnt have my charger, nor was i near my car (car charger) so i borrowed my coworkers charger. It was a blackberry micro usb, but i figured all would be fine. I plugged it in and it didnt charge. I thought that was weird. So i disconnected waited a second and plugged back in. And it started to charge. By the time my shift was over, i think i disconnected it at around 80% and went home then went to bed.
I wake up and use the phone for a bit and thats when i notice that the battery symbol is showing that its charging. It wasnt even plugged in! And yet i still see the green bar getting filled with the electric bolt in it. WTF? so i decided to turn off the phone (wish they'd create a restart like HTC). Then i couldnt even turn on the phone. It made no sense at all. Plugged it into its original charger and thats when it doesnt boot up but instead shows the splash screen and proceeds to show me the big battery image....at 5% and charging. That is some weird $#!@ yeah?
