    Mine has been on all day and finally got down to 30%ish so i turned it off and plugged it in and it immediately showed 70%, so i turned it back on and sure enough it's back up.

    I don't know what to believe.

    I'm having the same issue and so glad I found this. Example, last night I was down to about 15% (according to my Droid x). I turned it off, plugged it in and it immediately showed 50%.

    Just a bit ago, I was down to 20%. Turned the phone off (did not charge it), turned it right back on and it was up to 50% without charging it at all.

    Someone mentioned an OTA, but is that what is coming in August?

    Thanks for the update. It is pushed to the phone automatically or do we have to go through the "software update" in the About Phone part of Settings?

    Thanks again.

    I've had this problem a lot. I went to sleep with it at 80%, woke up about 3-4 hours later, and and it was dead. Turned it on, and it wouldn't boot, finally it did, and it was just an ipod like battery telling me the percentage (It was 5% by the way). So finally I wait, and it boots, and it says that I'm at 70%. It's irritating, but the update will be here tomorrow, and all this should be fine.

    OTA update???

    My phone is having the same problems with the battery and I am curious to know if people who got the OTA update experienced the problem anymore or if just getting a new phone is the solution? If the OTA does work how do I update the phone or verify that it was done? Thanks!
