If there appears to be no solution here, call your carrier's support and ask to be escalated to Blackberry support so that they can pull logs and try to figure out the issue. Best way for it to get resolved.

Leave the phone powered on when charging. Sweep up the screen to light up the screen if you want to check the battery level. In settings, about, and hardware, at the bottom of the display you should be able to see the percent of battery power.
With chargeable batteries they will reach their peak performance after about 15 to 20 charge cycles. The performance should be maintained for at least 350 to 400 full charge cycles or maybe 1.5 to 2 years depending on the particular state of the battery condition. After that period the battery charge opertion time will start to degrade. The rate of degrading can vary from one battery to another.
In the past I found I rarely got more than about 1.5 years peak performance from a phone battery. We also have a Bold that is just over a year old. Just a few weeks ago I had to replace the battery.

Exact same issue here. It doesn't seem to be continously charging, at least, the battery doesn't get any warmer - it should get slightly warm, maybe 1 or 2 degrees above ambient. I'm wondering if this is a firmware glitch. It functions fine other than that. I'm reluctant to just leave it charging overnight, in case it is continously charging.
