Battery keeps going flat

I've used the phone for a week. If I charge the phone in the evening, by the next morning that battery is practically flat.

Anyone have any idea why?

Re: Battery keeps going flat

If you got the phone from Verizon - call them up - Tell them and they'll probably send you a new battery - funny thing is they don't normally ask for the old one back so you'll wind up with two of them.
