    Battery problems

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone!!

    Had my 8700 from T-mobile about 3 weeks now.

    Everything was fine until about 3 days ok then the battery just died on me. Now it will only last about a day before I have to recharge it……..

    Anyone else had this problem??

    Si

    Sounds like a loose connector in the phone, charger or the USB cord. Do you have any extra batteries, chargers or USB cords?

    Good luck. If the new regular battery presents the same problem, I suggest an extended battery kit. I found mine at http://www.smartphonedepot.com

    Had the same problem with my T-Mobile 8700. I charged it on the mains overnight but it would only then last about 8 hours. I then ordered a replacement battery but before the new battery arrived, I charged it on the PC USB port and that cured the problem. Seemed to "kick start" the battery back into life. Now I am back to charging it on the mains overnight with no problems.

    not had that myself. any physical damage to the device or battery? Have you tried any other battery as it might not be the battery not keeping it's charge but the device draining/using it really quickly?
