    Phone thinks it is fully charged

    I've had my Fascinate for a couple of months and until yesterday everything has been fine. I plugged the phone in to charge it and in just a few minutes I got the "Phone is fully charged" popup and the batter icon was solid. But as soon as I unplugged it the icon went back to half empty and I had to plug the phone in again. This kept happening and I had to keep unplugging/replugging the charger in until the phone was fully charged. The same thing happened today. The phone is only 32% charged but is telling me it's fully charged. Any idea what could be causing this to happen and how I can fix it?

    Welcome to the forum! Have u tried rebooting your phone? Sometimes its the simplest things that work. Also, You're not running a task killer are you?

    As far as I know I'm not running anything. I popped out the memory card and the battery, put them back in but the same thing is happening. Phone is about 50% charged but as soon as I turn it on it says it's 100%. I wouldn't care about the popup if the phone continued to charge, but I think it stops as soon as it thinks its done.

    If you are using the stock charger and cable, I would contact vz, sound like a problem that might require a replacement.

    Wish I had more advice for you, but I think I would call VZ tech support and see if they have any answers for this. BTW should have mentioned it earlier.....Welcome!!

    when it says fully charged I think it continues to charge. it is still plugged in so there would be no way for it to stop charging. its like talking on the phone with it plugged in and already at 100% battery. the % will never drop. I think your safe dude but no matte what that would be quite annoying. welcome to the forum btw
