I beleive you have a bad battery, But this is well worth reading.
Read the below article. It is written by Mark Rejhon.
Max The Battery Life Of Your New BlackBerry
Li-Ion battery are best kept topped up regularly. A battery that has been left flat for a long time will benefit from being fully-charged and then fully discharged a couple of times, but there is no advantage to doing this to batteries in regular use.

Two things can be the cause; first, did you properly educate the battery properly in the beginning, that is first fully charge, then run till its flat and recharge so the cells get lively?

Have Verizon give you a new batt. and then Buy one. IF it doesn't change on either, return the one you bought.
Typically they will give you a used battery.

Here is another (more concise and up-to-date) battery tips link (which I collected from various and sources and personal experience).
And, it is fact, "conditioning" these Li-Ion batteries (the old three-cycle charge/discharge) is actually more damaging to the battery.
These batteries like being topped off, i.e. ten minutes of charging here and there are good for the battery.
