    So it looks like my griping to Vzw got me an acceptable CLN device. I did as the Foxkat said and I'm getting about 11 hours of my "normal" use on 3G.

    Thanks again for your help!

    Continuing issues battery meter recalibration

    My problem is similar and I have already exchanged for a refurb unit. This unit has the same issue. I am using Motorola supplied charging cord and plug unit. I have tried with car charger and my husband's charger (also OEM Motorola).
    Battery will sometimes charge, sometimes not.
    I was delighted to find this info re: recalibrating battery meter, but I have been trying to accomplish these steps in order since early morning. Here's the scoop:
    1. Turn off phone. Phone is at 10% - I must have missed the 15% mark.
    2. Plug in charger.
    3. Wait till phone shows 100% by pushing volume button.
    4. Remove from charger and turn on.
    5.Oops...battery isn't really 100%...it's only 20%!
    6. Repeat steps one through 4.
    7. Battery now says 50% charged. How frustrating.

    When charged in regular manner with phone on, the battery will report fully charged from 20% in about 25 seconds.

    Carrier (Verizon) has been un-helpful.

    Am I doing something wrong here?

    Thanks,
    hirize

    Welcome to DF hirize! You are definitely correct- what you are experiencing should not be happening! It is normal for the phone to report that it is at 100% charged and really only be 90% charged when you turn it on but shouldn't only be at 50%. And it definitely should take over 25 seconds to charge from 20% to 100%.

    Overnight, or whenever you can leave the phone on the charger (the one that came with the phone) plugged into a standard outlet, try charging the phone off for 5 hours. That is more than enough time to get a normal working phone to 100% charge. When you turn it on, see what the charge level says. It may only be 90-99% and that is normal.

    FoxKat may have other ideas or reasons why your phone is acting like it is. If so, by all means, follow his advice!
