Is the phone in warranty still? It seems your keyboard is knackered too.

There no no need to be sarcastic, I made a few spelling errors, not a big deal

Hi Tardis Steve,

Have you changed you usb charging cable at all recently? Some of the cheaper ones are utterly cr*p and do not deliver the necessary ampage to charge the phone efficiently

I've had a problem with a USB cable I bought but it may be down to the length as it's a 2m one.

I know lower voltages cannot travel along wires so well.

Also I've upgraded my mains charger from the 1 amp one to a 2 amp one (in car and mains) and it charges a lot quicker.

I have bought a number of cheap ones. They are OK for transferring data but charging has been a no go with all of them.

I bought a decent quality one from Maplin electronics (1.5 mtr I think) for about ten pounds and their leads work fine.

It is a big deal if you want someone to read what you wrote! LOL

You still didn't mention if your phone is still in warranty.
