Samsung Galaxy SII 4g shutting off when battery is charged.

Hello

I have read several comments from a few months ago about their Galaxy S II shutting off with no warning and then showing 0 battery charge when connected to the charger and then changing to show a battery charge close to what the charge truly is. I just started having this issue about a week ago, out of no where. I have had my phone for a year with no problems at all until now. The only time I can use it for longer than 5-10 min is if I keep the phone on the charger. I have already done the factory reset from reading others posts, but that didn't help (it did help a screen change issue I had due to Sprint ID that I didn't want) and I just ordered a new battery with hopes that will help. Has anyone had any luck correcting this issue? I have another year before my contract is renewed (which I won't do if Sprint won't help out on this since it does not seem to be an issue caused by me). I thought I had insurance but realized I don't anymore so I can't afford another phone. I am ready to throw the phone across the room out of frustration.

I had the same problem, at the year mark with my s2. the battery would read aabout 50% reboot and only read 3-5 %. I suspected the battery and was right. I ordered an extended battery from http://gorillagadgets.com/?sl=EN and all problems solved. I have been using the new battery for a month now with no issues. It just has to make it till next year so i can get an upgrade......hopefully samsung with have an S6 out by then..lol

I had the exact same problem with my Galaxy SII a few months ago. I had only had my phone for 1 year also. I do not have phone insurance either. I took my phone to a local Sprint store and the guy told me my battery was corroded. He replaced the battery at no charge and it fixed the problem. I never did know why it corroded. My phone never got wet. The guy said it just happens sometimes.
