Hi

I have noticed something strange happening with my phone. I have started charging it every night now so that it will be fully charged the next day.

When it is fully charged, I turn it off completely to save the battery, and to stop noisy email alerts. In the morning I turn the phone back on and it says 73% battery level, despite being turned off overnight, so nothing should be draining the battery.

If I leave the phone on Standby overnight the battery level is always 90%+ the next morning.

What the hell is going on? Does anyone else notice this quirk?

It could have something to do with the difference in temperature? In the morning it's coooled off and maybe that does something with the measurement?

Huh, I've never heard of that before, but then I never turn mine off. When you say "turn it off" I am assuming it is when you hold down the off button for a few seconds and answer yes to "really" turn it off. I think its very strange that it uses more power off than in standby. Maybe you have come across a nasty hardware bug. Keep us posted.

Yes I do mean holding down until it tells you data may be lost are you sure.

And it is still doing it. If I fully charge my phone at night and then leave it on standby the next morning the battery gauge will say something like 96%.

If I turn it off, it is always under 80% the next morning, this makes no sense. I leave the phone in standby now with the volume off, and the backlight and power set to switch off.

I keep it in a cradle now, this is a stock photo, not my phone in the cradle.

Charge your battery to FULL, then take it out of the phone when going to sleep, when you WAKE up, put the battery in, if it's at 100% or 99% then it's your PHONE. If it's at 96% like you said before then it's your BATTERY.

Memory card draining power
This was a ROM bug on i-mate JAMin on the first ROM versions that was available. A memory card inserted will drain power from the device. What brand do you have and do you have a memory card inserted ?
