Symptoms of a bad battery
So I have this T-Mobile Dash, and I want to sell it and get a Pearl, but it keeps dying on me every 5 minutes. I suspect the battery may be the culprit, and here's why:
It never dies while on the charger
When I boot it back up, it shows a battery with an exclamation point (!) for a mimute and then goes to 2 or three bars
I can watch the battery percentage drop rapidly in the power management settings area
it will stay on for about 15 minutes unless I'm using it
What do you think? I really want to sell this...
After checking to see that the contacts on both the battery and the phone are clean and making good contact,and it's still doing as you discribe.You can either try to sell it with the warning that a new battery is needed or buy a new battery for it and make sure that's the cause of it's trouble.Then sell it without the worries about complaints coming back at you(just in case it wasn't a bad battery issue).

Ok that sounds good. I'm still looking for some input from other people to decide if this really is a bad battery and do I want to spend money on a new one, or if this is a bigger issue and just blow up the phone. I've already done a factory restore on it and that didn't help...
Alright, thanks. I'll wait for more input
