    For the past day my phone has said it has full charge just restarted the phone now it says it's down to20 percent. It's been screwy for a while now. Doesn't seem to hold a charge well at all and I haven't had this replacement that long. What do you guys think?

    Sometimes restarting it like you've done is all that's needed.

    If that doesn't do it, I'd calibrate the battery. Use it til the battery runs dry and it shuts off on it's own, then let it sit dead for a couple of hours. Plug it back in overnight (I think it's 6 or 8 hours, though I could be wrong) so it gets a good, uninterrupted, full charge. Your battery should now be calibrated and show an accurate estimate of the battery. If not, a visit to a Genius Bar may be in order. Good luck.
