    Picked up my new 3GS about 3 hours ago and been on charge ever since and its not getting above 98% and says its fully charged.

    Is this normal?

    Cheers in advance.

    Did that on my 3g and not surprised that it still does it. It comes and goes

    This isn't the same thing but it might help. On my 3G it sometimes stays at 100% no matter what. A simple power off and on usually updates it to the actual power percent.

    It's probably normal. Overcharging a lithium ion battery can damage the battery, and the range of charge the battery can hold can vary by temperature and other factors, so there's usually some governance in place to keep the battery from over-charging. After a couple cycles you'll probably see your battery get to 100%.

    Same here

    I am having this same issue and I have tried charging with different chargers. Should I go to the Apple store and get it replaced?

    It was like this this morning. I just unplugged it and replugged it in, and it went up to 100%. Weird.
