    well, you can let it drain all the way down then try to recharge it..... You can make sure that your phone is totally off when trying to charge it to see if that helps... I'm sure that others have some ideas for you.....

    new or old, you could always try buying either a new charger or new battery. something isn't getting a full current.

    Re: My Battery wont fully charge

    Another thing ive learned is don't ever talk on your phone with it on the charger at the same time because it destroys the battery cells and with it constantly draining and charging the battery is fooled into thinking it is holding a full charge and its not

    Re: My Battery wont fully charge

    Mine never charges above 85 either. I have 2 new batteries and a wall charger for the spare. Even when I charge the battery out of the phone, the phone still says that its only at 85. I assume that its just an issue with the phone reading the battery level correctly.

    Hope this helps.

    i have went through several 7100i(s) due to a fault in the battert circuit. i would put a fully charged battery in and within minutes the battery level would fall to 80% and when i would plug in a charger it would drop to 80% and nextel is aware of this problem.

    That might be you are not using an original battery. Another suggestion, try to charge via an USB cable instead of the AC charger.

    I own a 7130e and had a similar problem. After you have charged your battery remove it to reset your blackberry. If this doesn't work then do as also mentioned above check the cord and or charger you are using for defects or damage.

    I have had that issue since purchased, what I also find is that if I take it from the wall charger and attached the usb cable it will charge to 100% while I'm on the computer

    I've had the same issue with the battery, not charging pass 85%, nextel changed my phone three times, I had puchased two batteries, reloaded the handheld software few times, and still having the same issue.
    I really do'nt know what to do, I 'm thinking to get rid of the phone pretty soon.
    If anyone have any more sugestion, I appreciate.

    I'm having the same problem with my phone; the problem seems to be with the phone not reading the battery level properly not the battery its self. I did a test on this and when I ran the battery down it sat at 0% for a day and a half before it died. Tried every thing mentioned here with no results. So now I just add 15% to what ever the meter tells me until it bottom’s out of course.
