I have a peculiar problem with my blackberry torch.
When I plug this unit into any charger (wall or USB), the charging icon shows up (battery with th lightning bolt) shows up and the clock (screen saver) also gets activated as normal, but after 10-15 seconds the chrging indicator goes and it shows as if the unit is not charging.
But I know that the handset is getting charged as I can use it easily for a day long as per the normal battery life.
So effectively the unit always shows an empty battery icon (Red outlined hollow battery icon always) and the LED always blinks amber. But th ephone works normal except than this.
Also if I do a battery pull out and reinsert it, after boot up the battery shows 100% but the icon and battery level indicators drop back to 1% and empty battery icon within 15-20 mins with the phone continuing it's normal opeartion with the empty battery icon (down to 1%)
This is causing a lot of trouble as I never know what is the actual battery level and poses problem when I do not charge and the battery is actually low.
Can anyone help me fix this problem. The unit is out of warranty and BB guys have refused to repair. I'm using the default theme and have not changes the theme so I can rule out the issues of 3rd party theme icons.

have you found a solution. mine is doing the same thing. pretty much if it isn't connected to the charger, my bb is unusable. i have tried a new battery and still get the same result.
my bb torch is also out of warranty so i am stuck fixing it myself or purchasing a new one
