    Hey guys, sorry if this is in the wrong spot, I'm kind of new to the forums. I am having a problem with my US spec S2 where the battery is draining abnormally fast, and when I plug it in it freezes. The only way to unfreeze it is to pull the battery and that starts a looping reboot process. If I'm lucky I can pull the SD card and boot it without that and it will load up fine, and I just plug the SD card back in, but I don't want to do that every time my battery dies. Anyone have any clues what it could be? Already pulled the phone apart and sprayed with canned air, and factory reset the phone, so I'm thinking it's on the computer side of things within the phone.

    Welcome to the forum!
    Being that the S2 has been out for quite awhile now, your battery may be dying. It's a quick and inexpensive fix (if that's the problem) and you can pick up an OEM replacement for around 10 dollars on Amazon. I would try that first but hang in there, and hopefully we can get some other suggestions for you.
    Good luck & enjoy your stay on the DroidForums.
