Blackberry Battery Goes from 50 to 30 after reset.
Hello everyone, i just recently received a Curve 8360 from my brother after my android has a damaged digitizer ( ) and i love this little guy! there's 2 things that are odd with this certain unit though, one i know why now.
1. the usb port is not working with blackberry usb cables, unless i jiggle it around a bit. using an android usb cable that's built a tiny bit different on the micro-usb side has remedied this issue and can charge and use media sync on my PC with no problems.
2. the battery has some weird things happening to it. the charge has been worn a bit on it so it doesn't last as long as it should, but when the phone is at 50%, it will drop to 30 if i reboot the phone, or wait a few minutes after it hits 50. also when i charge it, it will go from 30%-50% in 3 minutes. is this the phone or the battery?
so i plan to buy a battery if this will fix the battery life issues, as well as getting a housing off of ebay, and this thing will look brand new . i would love to have this a current phone as well as my backup when i buy a new phone the future.
