Re: C3 battery charging time

some new models have a longer charging time
in general 2 to 4 hours is enough with the phone powered off

Re: C3 battery charging time

No damage will occur unless the phone is faulty already, in which case it's not your fault.

Once the battery is fully charged, the phone will stop charging it anyway, even if you leave the charger connected.

Re: C3 battery charging time

i also bought a nokia c3 last week and i'm very happy with it except for the long charging time (four hours++). i thought it was a factory defect but i'm relieved to hear about the same problem with other users. the sales people say it takes an hour and a half to two for subsequent charging but now i know better.

Re: C3 battery charging time

sir,

  I have bought a nokia C3 phone day before which had a charging problem as discussed earlier,I got it replaced it yesterday with in 24 working hours after your customer care personnel checked it,this new phone has the same problem which is "charging is being stopped even when the switch is ON" and I have kept it for 5hours of charging and the battery is not full yet.I dont want my new phone to be repaired.wen I have consulted my showroom person he has asked me to get a DO certificate from any NOKIA CARE for further replacement.

                    As it is a company damaged piece can you please help me with this?

Re: C3 battery charging time

Don't worry your phone is perfect-o, its just that c3 takes lots of hours for charging.
It's not a factory fault, my sister bought c3 one week ago, she was kind of inspired with my c3 phone so even her phone is taking lots of hours for charging.

Re: C3 battery charging time

yes it takes 5-6 hours of charging, the best thing to do is to have a extra battery, so you could switch from time to time.

Re: C3 battery charging time

Just change the slow orginal Nokia 350 mAh batterycharger to a more powerful orginal Nokia 890 mAh batterycharger. Just stick to Nokia orginal with the same contact and you should be fine. This speed things up - in theory about 2,5 times faster.

I'm not bragging but my new C3 takes at least 10-12 hours to go from 1-2 bars to full.....

Re: C3 battery charging time

Its very easy . All u need 2 do is , do remember the path where u download the videos. then simply go ahead to the path and delete.

 and even then you are not getting able to delete then tell me what software do u use 2 download.
