It would be helpful to know just how quickly the battery is going flat, and I'm assuming there's no history of the phone having been damaged, but... Try swapping the battery for one from a friend's phone. If that cures the problem, you need to buy a new battery (they don't last forever). Otherwise, try charging the battery fully in a friend's phone using their charger, then see how long it lasts. If this lasts much longer, the problem is that the phone/charger combination isn't charging the battery properly. Mix and match chargers and handsets (mark which are yours before you start, or you will get mixed up) to identify where the problem lies. If the battery isn't old and tired, and the phone is charging it properly, then the problem must be that the phone is drawing excessive current. This could be because you've got it set up to do some power-hungry thing (backlight continuously on, playing MP3s or FM, promiscuously Bluetoothing or IR communicating, etc). Shut down all the functions you don't actually need at the time and see if that makes any different. Once you've eliminated all those, you're left with the liklihood that the phone has a fault which is making it draw excess current. Not good news, but at least you've eliminated all the other possibilities. A.

send the phone away for a warranty repair thats if its still in the 12 months warranty. sounds like the phone. since your phone is working with the charger in it, that points to the battery but if you bought a new one then it has to be the phone unless you are very unlucky in getting 2 dysfunctional batteries. But the best way around this is to send it away under warranty
