Charge doen't last long. Plug it to charge, it starts charging, then it turns off and stops charging. Spoke to t-mobile. They say it's a known software issue and that i need a new phone because i'm out of warranty (sounds like planned obsolesence to me; Y2k built in to self destruct after x years ;) ). is there a software fix? If so, how to i get it?
I had the same problem, but replacing the original battery sorted it out. I also had the other software problem these phones are known for, where they suddenly switch off for no good reason. Remarkably, replacing the battery has fixed that problem, too! Don't bother looking for a Siemens battery. You can get an after-market replacement for around $20 online. You might be on to something about the planned obsolesence, though--my original charger just suddenly failed today. Fortunately an after-market replacement was pretty easy to come by.

Fully charge the battery to maximize playing time. However, it
is not necessary to fully charge or completely discharge the battery
each time. You can charge the battery by connecting the jukebox either
to the AC power adapter (fastest) or to a USB port on the computer. The
battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen indicates the
remaining battery charge.
Connect the USB combo cable to the AC power adapter,
and then plug the power adapter into an AC power outlet. Or, you can
connect the USB combo cable to a USB port on the computer.
Plug the combo cable into the jukebox. Make sure that the
top of the plug (the side with the arrows) is facing the same direction
as the front of the jukebox. View Picture
If you are charging your jukebox from the computer's USB
cable, turn your jukebox off. If your jukebox is on, it cannot charge
from the computer's USB cable.
Note: If you are charging your jukebox
from the AC power adapter, you can leave your jukebox on as it charges,
but it will take longer to charge.
If the jukebox is on, the power cord icon appears in the
upper right corner of the display. The keypad's backlight turns on while
the battery charges, and then turns off when the battery is fully
When your jukebox battery is finished charging, pinch the
two side buttons on the plug, and then pull the plug out of the jukebox.

Have you tried a different plug? Sounds like the plug might be bad. If you have a car charger, and a house charger, I would try both. IF one charges, and the other one doesnt, you have your answer. If you have trouble with both, then either you have 2 bad plugs, or the socket on your phone might be bad. Either way, your local phone dealer can check them out in seconds, and some places won't even charge.
