    Change Battery while plugged into charger. Phone Restart?

    I am thinking about getting the Thunderbolt.

    My question is:

    Can you have the charger plugged into the phone while changing the battery and not have the phone shut down?

    My current phone (Droid) shuts down when I pull the battery even though it's plugged into the USB charger.

    I'm hoping the TB allows you to change the battery without having to reboot the phone.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    In a word....No. It seems it needs the battery to complete the charging circuit.

    It's too bad phone designers have gone this route. That was a nice feature on my older phones. I could have a charged battery ready to go and swap it out with the phone plugged into the car or home outlet and not have to wait for the phone to start-up.

    Agreed and I don't know what the reason for change was. Someone with an electrical engineering background would need to come into this thread and answer. Then I'd really be lost

    I wonder if it's the hardware or could it somehow be in the ROM to act like this?
