Question about Samsung Galaxy Prevail
Battery good. I CAN CHARGE THE BATTERY WITH ANOTHER PHONE BUT WHEN I PLUG THE CHARGER TO THE PREVAIL, IT WON'T CHARGE.
1) You have corrosion in the charging port and it is shorting it out. Remove battery and clean inside port hole with alcohol and a long bristle brush.
2) The charging port needs to me resoldered. That is a daily repair for my shop. the TWO OUTTER pins are the ones that do the charging the middle are for USB. Just reflow the solder, sometimes they have a crack in them where they bend down to solder into the board. in that case you will have to use a super fine wire to jump the pins where they are broken and solder them to the board. Not for everyone and you need magnification super small iron and flux to relow the solder. never add solder just reflow it with flux. i charger $25 in my shop.

SOURCE: battery life under 5 hours
have you let the battery go totally flat as this is recomended to do every couple of months because if you dont let the battery go totally flat this stops the battery from full recharging and will cause bad cells in the batt so i would let hte battery totally flat till it wont even light phone up then fully charge for 16 hours see if this improves the battery if not then the charger is probably over heating and cutting off so you could replace the charge hope this is some help to you

I charge my phone (which is a Motorola) all the time with the USB cord. If you have the driver for your phone installed on your computer, it should work =)

It looks like battery is damaged... When plugged in to charger phone shouldn't power on. Try put it on charger when on and see if charging icon appear. (top right corner-battery status icon should change -insted of battery to charging.) Battery is fully charged after cca 4 hours, 80% after 2 hours.

Bad battery, you can get one pretty cheap off of www.uxcell.com for like 3 or 4 bucks, as far as using a generic charger, I never heard of that before, if you know someone with the same phone, ask yhem to use the battery for a second, and try to charge your phone.
