I have a Samsung Galaxy Fit - GT S5670 model. When I charge the battery, there used be a percentage on the pattern screen. Somehow it is not showing now. All it is showing the word "Charging" but no numbers. Any ideas how can I get back the percentage status?

I have noticed that when I connect my phone with high voltage socket for charging it always shows charging percentage, but when I use a low voltage socket(using extension box, spike or similar things) it shows only "charging".

Open the Phone app. Tap the number *#*#4636#*#* Before you can hit Dial, a screen with some info will pop up, including an option for Battery Info. Tap that and it will list.

That doesn't cause the percentage to be shown on the lock screen ... – Matthew Read Nov 25 '11 at 18:22
@Kevin : it doesn't seem to be working. I tried tapping ##4636## on the phone, but nothing happens. – Kaustubh Nov 27 '11 at 12:44
@MatthewRead : do you have any suggestions for me to try? – Kaustubh Nov 27 '11 at 12:45
@Kaustubh The only thing I can think of is changing the unlock screen in Settings -> Display, but I don't know if that will help. – Matthew Read Nov 28 '11 at 16:31
i don't know how, but somehow it started displaying the percentage as of now. so, for time being, the issue seems to be resolved. :) – Kaustubh Nov 29 '11 at 5:05
