    Dear Misphit, that question mark is saying it doesn't recognize the battery as being a true Motorola battery, or that it has reached a point at which it will no longer take a charge. The phone has circuitry built in which is intended to prevent using third party batteries or batteries that don't meet manufacturer's specifications. The claim is to prevent using a battery which may damage the phone. More likely it's to keep people buying the OEM batteries and protect profits.

    Your only options are to try that battery in another Droid to see if it also responds with the ?, or purchase a new battery (which will likely fix the issues). Good luck!
