    I have the same issue with both of my ZTE Force phones. They will not start charging until I reboot the phone. I have tried multiple charges with the same results. The chargers work as expected on my HTC EVO 4G so believe it is the phones.

    I've had my zte force for about a month. This morning, the phone wouldn't come on. Plugging into the charger didn't work. So I took out the battery and plugged into the charger. Then the phone turned on. I put the battery back in. Even though the battery had been fully charged last evening, it showed 0% charged. It's now recharging. We'll see if it holds the charge.

    hey guys....Just a quick Tip. Try using a different plug, if available? Make sure it is 5v 850ma or bigger

    let me know if you need more info on the plug

    Mine has issues as well, seems to charge when the phone is off but not when it is on. Multiple issues with my ZTE Force. There is sadly no way I can rely on this as a service :anguished:

    I had same problem as you. I think you probably need to update your Android OS (Operating System) to fix your battery issues. Please check @njfulwider5's post here on ZTE Force phones where you can follow the instructions on how to update the OS. Good luck!

    I have same issue. It looks like battery issue. I tried second battery and its charging. "Bad" battery won't charge on another device too.
