Okay so I've had my Samsung Brightside for about a month now and I recently noticed that my phone would charge on its own and there would be nothing plugged in or anything and that went on for about 3 days. Now when i try to turn my phone off it will not go off the only way to cut it off is taking the battery out. Does anyone else have this problem ?
My son has this phone and we have recently noticed this also. The problem is that he never knows when his battery needs charged as a result of the bars always looking as if they are charging.
These are definitely unusual behaviors for the phone! I can assure you that the device is not charging itself, as cool as that would be! Is this still happening? When the phone will not power off, is it displaying an error message? I'd love to look further into this for you. Please keep me posted!

Sounds like a short in the charging port. The only way you would see charging is if the charging port detected a charge on it. A short could cause this, and pulling the battery/resetting/etc, won't fix a hardware issue.
