1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    My names Sarah and I got the Droid November 13th

    My Phone Record

    Nokia ( No Idea what it was, so long agao) > Chocalate One ( Had Two, my buttons went out first time) > Envy 1 ( Had 2) > Voyager ( Had 3) > and now the Droid

    I am 14, and I am pretty tough on phones ^ as you can tell...

    SO I've had my Droid for Month and a half?? And I've had some "issues"....

    - The stupid back cover falls off CONSTANTLY, I read online I could get it replaced though?

    - If I leave music going or any app? It runs my battery down even if I have full charge

    - If I set an alarm at night, and I don't have more then 30% charge, my baby is dead in the morning

    - And now I am having charger issues..... Its actually been going since I first got it... but Its finally gone I think.. I have it plugged in at the moment and it says its charging 5% but its been on the chrger for 3 HOURS!! and so I don't think its working, there is no water damage to the battery, the little dots on the sticker are still intact.... One of my prongs looks a little crooked but yeah so it could be my shove ness

    - The little green blinky thing? Has stopped, I could of turned off a setting



    I like

    - All my diffrent keyboards
    - Not totally reliable on "touch
    - All the Apps
    - How it say " 50% charged" etc.

    But anyways hey.

    Heya Sarah,

    nice to have more females on the boards!
    :welcome:
    Also its good to see that even younger girls are crazy for good
    phones! Makes me feel not so nerdy at all ;)

    Maybe you want to check out our webchat or maybe chek out the Girls only Social Group

    ;)

    Have fun here and dont hesitate to contact me, if something goes wrong,
    or if you have questions ;)


    To cover your questions:
    My back was falling off as well as yours does, so i called Motorola Support and they replaced it for free within 3 days.

    Yes, a running app/music drains battery, just as the same as an iPod does!

    The wake-up alert issue is known, but there is now solution now, then leaving your DROID plugged till the morning.

    If your DROID is not charging, you may not have it plugged correctly. Here is a solution: Pull the battery, while the phone is running, plug it back in and recharge it. Make sure the light at the USB slot on the phone is ON while charging!


    :welcome:

    I have done that multiple times, The light is on. I have plugged it in, my phone is so dead it wont turn on with out the charger in it, if I can hook my charger in enough... it will turn on.. I am going to keep trying tonight but if its not working by tommorow afternoon I will most likley take it to my local verizon.

    And I can't leave it plugged in with my charger being broken or as I think it is, but when it was working thats what I did unless I forgot.. and forgetting sucked.

    Hey Sarah,

    so if that is the whole issue, i would recommend going to the Verizon Store
    and get a swap. The phone appears not to work correctly!
