    100 down to 90% charged in 20 minutes is this normal?

    I unplugged my phone at 810 or 815 and now at 830 it is showing 90% charged. It had been plugged in since 8 pm last night. Is this normal? I've had this phone since after thanksgiving and this is the first time I noticed it.

    it didn't happen with my THUNDERBOLT or original droid and this is the first time I've noticed it on my razr. Yesterday I hardly used it except for NORMAL facebook, web and texting and it was dead in 10 hours. Verizon tells me this is NORMAL. I'm not happy at all.
    As much as I hated my thunderbolt, with it's extended battery I didn't have to worry about battery life and reception was excellent until last fall. I haven't found a phone that will match up to it yet.

    Have you tried training your battery? I have a regular razr and with minimal use I can get 1520 hours out of it. Are you on ice cream sandwich? Or did you install the jelly bean leak? It does drain a little faster from 100% - 90%. Maybe try using smart actions to turn off mobile data when screen is off.

    This might be a stupid question, but if you turn off mobile data when the screen is off, will you still get emails? I'm not sure since I think gmail is a push, but not really sure how that works.

    If you use smart actions to turn off data when you're phone is idle yes you will still get emails, text messages, and phone calls.

    Thanks for the reply. So what does mobile data turn off? Just the apps that go out and check for data?

    It shuts down your phone signal completely, So your phone is not searching for signal or switching from 3g to 4G... And yes all the apps that are using data. We all know how much battery 4G uses this is just a way to shut it down when your phone is idle.

    I have to add... Don't shut mobile data off manually. Use smart actions or other alternatives such as juice defender. If you manually shut down data you will not receive calls, texts, or emails.

    Avenged61973- i don't think you are aware how mobile data works...

    @OP- turning off mobile data, or even 4G will help.. and turning off mobile data means you will only recieve SMS and calls (no MMS-pic/vidmessages) and no web/data access
