My N97 Mini has developed an odd quirk. It will randomly show the "charging" pop-up, displ.ay the battery as charging, and show the charging lamp beside the usb port. The only way to stop this is to switch of and on again. Needless to say, the charge is NOT plugged in!

I can't see what causes this, and it is random and unpredictable so I can't work out what causes it. I have the GreenCharging app (which alerts me when the battery is fully recharged)-could it be this?

Any help greatly appreciated!

I can't offer any help, per sť, but I can also say that this has happened to me a few times. Not so much as it's considered a problem through, but I still get it nonetheless. It normally happens, if it does happen, either when I'm using an unofficial charger (like the one I use in my car) or a few minutes after it's been on charge with an official charger.

Again, it's very rare for it to happen for me. I can only recall maybe two or three times it's happened. Also, at the same time, my old N95 would fall victim to the same problem every now and then.

Please support my suggestion for Gravity!! - Add cut/copy/paste for when N97 is open
