How I reset my Battery Statistics without ROOTING the phone.

All,

 

You might try this to reset your Battery Usage calculation statistics.  It worked for me and it does NOT ROOT you phone.

 

To save time do this before you go to bed.

 

Turn your phone off by holding the on/off button until the phone turns completely off

 

Remove the battery, the SD card, and the SIM card.

 

Wait a couple of minutes and reinstall the SiM card, SD card and the battery BUT DO NOT turn the phone back on...Do NOT.

 

Before you go to bed keep the phone turned off and plug it into the small 110 volt 1 Amp charger that came with the phone and let it charge overnight.

 

The next morning  DO NOT turn the phone on just unplug the charger and immediately re-plug it back in to further charge the battery.  Every time it says 100% unplug and replug it in.  Do this 3 or 4 or more times.  If you walked away and missed the 100% just unplug it and do it again.

 

NOTE:  Because the phone is OFF when you plug it in you will first see a gray battery for a few seconds and then a green battery for a minute or two on the display before the screen goes blank (black)..  The battery looks like a standard flashlight battery.  The green battery will say 100% if it is fully charged.  When you see 100% unplug the charger and re plug it in.  The battery charges a little more each time and usually in 3-8 minutes it again says 100%.  Doing this tops off the battery a little bit more each time.  Remember do it 3 or 4 times.

 

Finally, turn ON your phone and go to Settings>About phone> Battery Use and look at your phones Battery Usage Calculations. They should be reset.  At the top of this screen the amount of time "on the battery" should be a matter of minutes because you just reset the statistics.

 

The attached screen shot shows my battery usage statistics AFTER I reset them.  If you want to see my battery usage BEFORE I reset them go to this URL and read my original post in that thread.  It showsa screen shot of my battery usage.

PS, You might take a screen shot of you current Battery Statistics before you do this for comparison.

OOPs...In my previous post I forgot to attach the Screen Shot of my Battery Statistics after I reset them.

 

Notice how at the top of my Screen Shot display it shows "5m 43s on battery" meaning it was reset 5 minutes and 43 seconds earlier.

I found an easier and much quicker way to reset the Battery Use than the method that I described here so please go to the following thread to see how.

BigJer1950,

 

The main reason is to try to reset the Battery statistics in order to make the battery last longer between charges.  Also, you will get a new list of what is using the most battery power and that might help ID APPs that are battery hogs.

 

If you do it use my shorter method because it's easier and faster. 

 

Also, it's something to do so you don't get bored while relaxing with a cold one...Just Kidding!
