It's hard to really control the drain on a feature/basic phone.  You might perhaps need to let the battery discharge until it turns the phone off, then leave off and fully recharge.  Might take a few cycles of that until the battery "settles in."  I remember having to do that with my Nokia bricks through my Motorokr Z6m.  I still do that with my smartphones to this day.
