    Everyone talks about great battery life and blah blah blah... I've had crap!
    i wish i could get more than a few hours out of one charge.
    but only 5 minutes in and i'm down 10% and 30 minutes in and i'm down 20%.
    this is only after sending about 7 texts because i had just powered my phone back on...
    the 30 minute one had been a few more texts, but nothing serious!
    thats a little ridiculous.
    PLEASE tell me what i should be doing.

    might try a battery recalibration. run down to 15% power off charge to 100% then run down to 15 % and power off charge again . and if that does not work a factory reset. i have heard of this problem on lot of razr after updating to ICS .

    hope that helps

    I am sure FoxKat will eventually make his way here, he is the all knowing battery guru ... :)

    I don't know if this will help you or not, but this is a thread I started about my experience battery life. These are just things I did on MY phone, everyone uses their phone differently and for different things. Maybe something in there will help you ... but "your mileage may vary" :)

    Chelsea, are you using smart actions battery extender??

    Are you using the factory charger and cable??

    Have you ever powered off and charged to 100%?

    thanks! i have previously done a factory reset after i got ICS. but i dont know, its so frustrating!
    i have to have a car charger, a house charger and one at work.

    normally i don't charge when its off either, but i've been better about it. =]

    We both get poor signals.. that eats battery quickly. :(

    You don't have to turn it off to charge it EVERY time you charge it, but once in a while let it go from 100% to 15% and then power it off and charge it up to full. I read on here somewhere something about once every 40 or so charges ... keeps the battery and the meter calibrated. :)

    you may also have a dead cell in battery . with all that stuff shut off you should not be draining that fast.. FoxKat may be more help . but it may be time for a trip to VZW

    My phone hasn't been heavily used today, except for a little reading on Twitter, and a weather radar check ... :icon_ lala:

    DUDE ... you gotta stop that. I thought I was in the Razr forum and suddenly found myself beamed up to the Battery forum. For a minute I thought I was in an episode of Star Trek!! :icon_eek:
