    Well....the store went ahead and swapped the phone out. I will take
    your advice on this. I shut it off as soon as I left the store and
    got home and put it on the charger. It should get pretty close to a
    24 hr charge. The salesguy said to give it 8-10 hrs, then let it
    drain all the way till dead, then recharge. Lets see what happens.
