    I'm curious to a problem I'm having on my DROID HTC Incredible 3g, I keep my screen brightness on the lowest setting yet an hour later my battery goes from 100% to 20 when only using it for texting, screen brightness runs about 80% of battery when I check it. I can unplug it and leave it alone for 10 minutes and the battery will be at 85% while being idol that entire time. I have to keep my phone on charger 24/7 or it dies within 2 hours of texting use. The phone is new but I believe this is a battery problem but maybe I'm wrong. Any ideas?

    Probably a "shot battery" I would call your carrier and get a replacement.

    Sounds simple... It likely just needs a new battery

    If you reboot the phone by taking the battery out and it's still not holding a charge, its the battery. There's nothing else it can be. After a battery pull, all apps are restarted. If you want to be super safe, I supposed you can wipe the phone and see if it still does the same thing. That will literally tell u that its the battery 100%

    Yeah it's definitely the battery. It's warped and expanding as if it's going to explode. I'm just going to either replace the battery or the entire phone in general, thank you for all of your feedback. :)
