    My droid bionics extended battery started to malfunction randomly yesterday. When i tilt my phone, it reboots and i cant do anything with the extended battery. However, my phone works fine with the standard battery. (The extended battery is not water damage.) My extended battery used to work fine and i loved it.
    Can anyone tell me what the problem is?? Thanks

    Have the same problem on my daughters. The battery is only a week old. I'm leaning toward a bad batch of batteries.

    It sounds like you're not getting a good connection. Are any of the pins in the phone bent?

    If you bought it from someone like Verizon or Motorola can't you get a another and send in your broken one.

    That's a good point. Is this the Motorola, Seidio, or either of the Mugen batteries? Did you get if from Verizon or eBay?

    Yep and make sure its working before you leave the store! I can't stress that enough. If you ask me, have the Verizon guy imputed it in so if anything happens or id it doesn't work, its on him
