    WOW...that is interesting. I sure hope that is not the case. The
    salesman just casually said (when I bought the phone) that it only has
    a partial charge on the phone, so you may get "some" use out of it,
    but be sure to give it a full charge of 12 hours. I am going to try
    to talk to them today and either swap the phone or try another
    battery. If I do get a new battery, then I will definitely go
    directly to a loooong charge. Thanks for the info
