Unhappy Really odd Charging situation

I got great battery life yesterday (better than usual I'd say....had about 50% left after about 3 hours of screen on and 13 hours off the charger, so I let it sit off the charger over night. Not something I normally do. When I woke up I used it for a bit and got to about 21 hours off charger and 4 hours of screen on....the important thing is this:
when I plugged it back in, it started carging like normal I left the room for a bit, came back.....and it was up a couple percent, but said it was no longer charging. I've reseated the charging cable a couple of times, to no avail. When the phone is on, it won't respond to the cable at all. If I turn the phone off, and plug in the cable, it comes on, acts like it knows it's charging. but keeps bouncing from the Samsung screen to the battery charging screen (no animation though) and a quick vibrate. It seems like if I leave it on, and leave it with the charger in, it'll charge, but it's not reflected in the battery %. if I reboot, it'll go up some, but not as quickly as it should have.

I've been fighting this all day and am finally up to the high 70s. also, if the phone is on, and I have the cable plugged in, but pull the battery, the phone will stay on via the power cable for about 3 seconds. Have been using DartStalker 6 with the Compulsion Kernel. I had an old version of that kernel so I updated to 10 with no change. Obviously wiped cache and dalvik for that....

it seems really weird that it kinda knows it's being charged, but.....seems

IDK....any ideas? suggestions? oh, also if I plug the cable into my laptop, the laptop doesn't see the device.

also, stock cable and charger block. have tried different regular USB cables and chargers....specifically whatever my wife is using to charge (successfully) her HTC One Mini.

just had more weird stuff happen. got home threw the phone on the charger, hooray! it shows that it's charging! after letting it sit for a bit I check it....it's lost juice. UGH!

Went to T-Mobile today. New phone should be here in 2 days. Oh well.....
