    Also, while it is charging, the Moto logo and Dual Core Technology is displayed, then every minute or two the whole thing goes black for a couple seconds then the Moto logo dual core... reappears. Is that normal??

    Please anybody who has been thru this please help!!

    Thanks!!
    What i would do is turn it on and activate it. go ahead and let it charge till it's full, then un-plug it and use it till it dies then charge it non-stop till it's 100% full. After that use and charge it however you like.

    Also there is an app on the maket called LightFlow that is really good and you can set it up to blink while charging in whjatever color you like.

    I noticed this too a few days ago. My phone was as dead as can be, plugged it in and "I saw the light". Too bad it was only on that occasion, since I mostly recharge it when it still has juice in it.

    This I haven't noticed yet.

    Hey, that sounds like a good alternative, though I'd much rather have an app that turns on that particular, seemingly charging light to represent it's getting charged up. I just wouldn't wanna get all my LED color notifications mixed up in that upper little light -- it might go crazy.

    Thanks for sharing.



    Regards

    so am i blind, or is there no charging light like on previous droids? i really liked when the light would go off , letting me know it was charged

    thanks

    When the phone goes dark after non-use, the green light on the front upper right corner will slowly blink.

    Sorry people, I am wrong. I just took out the charging cable and the green light still blinks.
    Sorry for the false

    Found this for future reference:

    letch, tidbits,
    The LED is working as designed, but it's an area where MOT has changed the behavior from D1 and D2... I suspected tidbits was asking about that LED but I wanted to make sure before responding.

    We've changed the UI paradigm for the white LED located next to the microUSB port since evolving from D1/D2 to D3, and the reason you don't see it lighting up nearly as often is that the LED under discussion is no longer "sign of charge", it's "sign of life".

    There are two physical LED's on the phone (not counting the caps-lock and alt-lock LED's on the QWERTY), plus the display / software UI of the phone itself -- all 3 are viable means to convey information to the user. After benchmarking the competition and internally reviewing proposals for streamlining of our UI notification flow and avoid putting multiple behaviors (such as notifications + sign of charge) on the same LED, D3 does the following:

    1) Medium used to display notifications: green LED above display (also flashes red when battery is low)
    2) Medium used to display sign of charge (what you guys call "charger indicator"): display / software UI
    3) Medium used to display sign of life: white LED next to microUSB

    Sign of life is something used in very rare circumstances, such as a bone-dead battery, where you do not yet have enough power to light up the display (to show sign of charge through the phone UI) but we want to reassure the user that yes, the phone is alive and charging up. Once the phone gets enough charge to activate the display, you'll see the sign of life LED wink out.

    Regards,
    Warren @ Moto

    Thanks for posting that TyrantII. That post is from the Motorola forum, which does get read by people at Motorola who can influence what gets changed/updated on the phone. So, if enough people let Motorola know how lame this change is, it may be possible to get them to fix it. Here is a thread I started a little while ago for that purpose.

    Possible, but possibly not if it's a hardware change. I too liked the charging light, but the functionality seems fundamentally changed. Then again, these are always on devices now, are they not?

    Yes, such a step backward to disable the charging indicator functionality. I am not a software guy, but I find it hard to believe that an LED on/off status could not be controlled by software.

    That all depends on how / where the LED is wired...

    The LED seems to indicate a charge in progress when the battery voltage is too low to allow the screen to come up. It is an indication that you are getting charge into the battery when you have no other indications.
