    Ok, so I unplug my 9850 with a full battery. I sit down, surf the internet and/or facebook for 5 minutes, and the phone suddenly rebbots itself. When the homescreen comes back up, the battery indicator is on RED. I immediately plug in the phone, and the battery indicator instantly shows it....FULL.
    It has done this for the last week. Any ideas? Fixes to this point have been a security wipe (didn't fix it) plus 3 OS complete reinstalls (some downgrades, plus most recent OS, and this also fixed nothing)

    I recommend buying it off of amazon, but make sure its shipped and sold directly from amazon

    This is a good example: Amazon.com: RIM ACC-38580-301 RIM BlackBerry J - Series Extra Battery Charger Bundle - Battery - Retail Packaging: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Or ebay, when my Storm started the random reboots, I found a battery Ebay for 5 bucks. Solved my problems and kept me super happy.

    I have Verizon and have insurance on my phone and they give me a new battery free of charge every time my batteries are dead. I also have been using the same store for 8 years now, but try your carrier...you never know.

    I have Verizon insurance too but two days ago they told me the battery is not covered only the phone hardware is and I would have to wait for a week for a new battery to be delivered at full cost. I hope Verizons attitude about BlackBerry improves when BB 10 comes out.

    I had the same issues my phone is 14 months old or so. If the phone losses charge rapidly, take the battery out. If it appears bloated, or will spin on a flat surface, it's cooked. They aren't cheap to replace but I'm glad that they can be. Unlike Apple stuff.

    Same happened here...

    At first it dropped to 1% while in around 50%...then 60....70...and last at 95%, sudden drop to 1%

    Now my dillema is finding an original battery here in indonesia. Official BB store sells for around $28. many onlineshop sells for around $15, but the originality is questionable. But thereare several aftermarket battery sold for around the same price (6month warranty and no pairing needed)

    Finally ends up using original battery (or so the store says) for about $20
    Well at least they give 6mnths warranty should it turns out fake or defect

    So far not trouble at all
