So my phone is acting really weird. When i go to plug it in to charge either from a wall outlet or my computer, it says its charging but when i unplug it it, the battery bar has no bar left in it. It was charging fine up until yesterday but now it says that the phone is about to die even though its been on charge for 12 hours. Has anyone had this problem and do i need to take it back. Its very agrivating cause i really was liking my focus and the WP7 hardware.

Yeah, I had this problem.

Turned out to be the USB cable I was using was bad.
Try another one.

I had this problem while testing an aftermarket (Seidio) battery. Was showing charging but would not charge. Needed a battery pull to get it working. Put the OEM battery back in and now all is good. Seidio battery went back.

I've kinda run into this problem. I'll press the power/lock button at the wrong moment, like right when I get the text, and the phone shuts down and won't turn on and says the battery is dead and plugging it in turns the phone on but now matter how long it stays plugged in when I uplug it it syas low battery and shuts down.

Pulling the battery and leaving it out for about 30 seconds seems to do the trick, something just re-starting the phone works to. I'm thinking it's a glitch on Samsungs part.
