You should write a book. Seriously.
Lmao..why thank u..n jst a fyi,iam on the app thats why,iam a bit rusty @the browser lol..but i sure will,i needa delete some old threads
Jaye712, no sweat! I don't recall if the DroidForums app has the "like" feature, but tapatalk has finally added support for it so you may wish to take the plunge...
LOL, I thought I WAS writing a book! :rofl2:
Only difference is I don't get paid...but still hope that I'm received well. I suppose with 1326 "likes" and counting (thank you, sir), that I can at least say the latter is correct!
From all the info you've contributed here, I think we could make one happen. And yes, we very much like you here. ))
Yes we like foxkat. He's the master! We're not worthy! We're not worthy!
Um, I think I found something really really bad. The back of the phone is protruding and looks swollen. Strangely, it is not very hot to the touch. The battery must have something very wrong with it. I have worked with Li-Poly (I know different from Li-ion) batteries before and have seen them explode and cause serious injury. Sooooo I think I will shut my phone down before this explodes near my head.
That does sound bad
I agree choco... play it safe. Have you got your replacement yet? In addition call Verizon to let them know the battery is bulging... just as a little assurance to note the seriousness of the problem and if it happens to get worse in transit, they have record that it could and it is not something you did taking it apart before sending it.
They shipped the replacement phone to the wrong address, my old one. I hate how they don't confirm where to ship it. Now I have to get that one back, but they are overnighting me another one to my office. Should be here tomorrow.
I mentioned battery bulge and they sent me to a supervisor. Sooo there's that. Kinda wish it would explode (without hurting me of course) they'd probably let me upgrade to whatever the hell I wanted and keep unlimited data for life.
Lmao! I was sorta thinking the same thing... but I would put it in a explosion proof safe to protect myself from serious injury.
Foxkat is a freakin genius... just sayin
And the Webby award for longest post goes to...
SOunds like my Droid might have the RF issue. Can someone explain exactly what it is and how to fix it? My Droid X will last all night if not touched. WHen I start doing any app/game playing such as Words with Friends or Internet Browsing it will go through the battery within 5 to 10 minutes.
I've had the same issue.. Although, I may have missed something here, I don't see any actual answers to determine what the cause is. My battery swelled up as well, so I bought a new one... and I figured why not get something better, so I got an extended 3500mAh thinking it would fix the issue and be awesome....
It was not awesome. It now lasts about 30 minutes, goes from 100% to 10% and I have about 30 secs to find a charger or it shuts off... ok, then here's the interesting part - WHEN I PLUG IT IN AFTER IT SHUTS OFF... it says it has 100% battery and to unplug, but if I do it tells me that it has 5% battery and shuts off again.
I bought the phone used, so no warrantee and I'm sure it's so old that they don't even make it anymore... but I don't have any other issues with the phone besides this one.
Does anyone know what may cause this issue? A motherboard? Software? Apps? The FBI/NSA? (lol) But for real, if the phone is junk I can accept it, but I'm the kind of person that likes to at least get the answer before throwing in the towel.
Thanks in advance!!
The short answer is to power off the phone, connect it to the charger, and in your case with the large extended battery allow it to charge for a minimum of 6 hours.
Once done, disconnect and power up. The phone should run for a good 18 to 24 hours on that battery. Keep using it until the phone says to connect to the charger. Then power off and charge again for the 6 hours. From there you can power up and you should be good to go.
