    why is that when i charge via usb, the numeric battery shows 100% but as soon as i detach the cable it goes down to like 98%?

    Then I reattached the cable it goes to 95%. Stays there for a couple of minutes then go to 100%. Goes to 98% when detached again. Rinse and repeat.

    Is this coz my battery is not callibrated or something?

    I also have instances when the battery value increases while im not doing anything.

    For some reason the numeric value changes when the cable is detached/reattached.

    That happens. Once it hoes to 98, after a few minutes of usage without the cord will bring it up to 99 or 100.

    SBSettings relies on what the iPhoneOS says the battery is, which changes on what you happen to be doing at the time. It's notoriously unreliable too!
