    My little battery icon has stopped showing a loss in battery and what not. Or at least it hadn't for the past few days because all of a sudden it stopped working because it was at like 5% battery, it's fully charged now and I'll see if the battery icon works. But just wondering if anyone has thoughts or fixes for this or anyone has had the same problem.

    Yeah, my girlfriend's iPhone is experiencing the same thing. Except with hers, the battery indicator never went down, from the first day she had the phone. Her indicator always reads fully charged, and doesn't ever change.

    Is there anything that can fix this? Otherwise her phone is flawless.

    Yeah after about an hour and a half of use and 2 hours of stand by my phone still shows a full green bar. Does anyone think that a restore will fix it? I've already restored once and it's a pain. Because I can see in the future this battery thing really annoying me.

    as of yesterday my battery indicator stopped going down. It showed a full charge until the phone turned itself off because the battery was empty. I've charged it again and am going to see what happens today.

    That happened to me a couple of weeks ago. A simple restart fixed it for me but YMMV.

    Let it run until it shuts down by itself, then recharge fully (ideally overnight). If you still have the problem, try restarting. Those two things did the trick for me.

    I'll let it die down fully, but by restarting do you mean, turning it off and on? Because I've done that already. But I'll do what you said until I make a final consensus.

    Oh nevermind. All of a sudden it is showing that the battery is going down. Cool I am glad I didn't restore or anything.
