Storm charging ?

Can you charge the Storm with it still on?  I left mine on in order to receive calls, texts, or e-mails and it did not move the battery charge indicator.  Took it off and the batter had not charged at all for over two hours of being plugged into the wall socket.  Suggestions.

Re: Storm charging ?

I seem to be having a similar problem. When tethered to my laptop the symbol indicates that the storm is charging, but the battery meter never changes. When I hook it up to the wall socket, it does seem to charge it - even with the phone on.

Mine works either way. Sounds like a bug/glitch of some sort. This phone really needs a bulky patch soon to address some major/minor issues. Smiley Indifferent

Re: Storm charging ?

ok,,, here's the deal.

 

1.  lets do a battery pull for 15 sec, then replace

2.  make sure you are closing apps when your done.

3.  make sure your phone is not going into bedside mode when it is plugged in (there is a bug with bedside)

4.  make sure the cable is properly connected to the storm

5.  make sure the cable is plugged into the wall or computer

Re: Storm charging ?

I don't understand what's wrong with the charging...I charge my phone for 12 hours, and it only lasts 12 hours after I unplug it....and I barely talk on it. Anyone else having this problem?

Re: Storm charging ?

I will assume you haven't had your storm long.

give it a week, and the batter life will improve dramatically

Re: Storm charging ?

I've been able to leave mine on while charging and it's charged.
