    So, I took my pre off the touchstone this morning, hit screen lock and as I was slipping it into my pocket I noticed the screen didn't turn off completely. I checked and sure enough it was displaying the touchstone charging screen. I figured it was a glitch but 4 hours later I noticed that my battery is still at 100%!!!.

    Although I can't be sure for another day or so, I think my Pre has learned how to charge itself wirelessly everywhere. I knew this day would come.

    Anyone else lucky enough to get this feature?

    Ah, so your friends have a new saying, "is that a fully charged Pre in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"

    Anyone ever play Infamous on the PS3? He could charge off of anything wirelessly

    Maybe his pre delivered a mysterious package that turned out to be a bomb and gained super electrical powers.

    i mean come on, the phone probably just locked up, it could have been draining the battery even though the phone showed it was still at one hundred. Did you not use the phone at all for four hours? No email, text or even phone calls? So, everytime you went to shut the screen off it displayed the TS charging screen? There are a lot of questions.

    Great, the microwaves I am constantly getting bombarded with on a daily basis wasn't enough to totally fry my brain. This is exactly what I need.

    Used to happen to me. I think it was finally a defective Touchstone back cover.

    That did happen to me the first time I put my Pre on the TouchStone after applying the "don't wake everyone in the house up when I put you on the TouchStone to charge" tweak. I wound up resetting the phone and haven't had that problem since. I didn't leave it like that for very long so I don't know what my battery would have said 4 hours later.

    I've been having problems with 1.3 - while the battery life is normally a whole lot better, using the "Instant On" radar function drains it pretty fast. That's a problem, since I have a whole lot of police that patrol my area, and if a cop car with radar drives by my house it sets the phone off even when I'm sitting at home watching TV. Have you heard if there's a patch coming out yet? That would help my battery life!
