    Hey all, this member PM'd me and presented with the following;

    Please help troubleshoot and determine if he actually did have one or more rogue applications sucking down power, but also please walk him through the meter training. I find it hard to believe the phone could withstand such a tremendous discharge rate for any period of time, let alone 1.5 hours.

    Thanks! :hail:

    My phone is having the same problem - discharging tremendously fast. I was unsuccessful in finding the guide to recalibrate the meter. Can you point me to it? Thanks in advance.

    Calibrating the meter is actually quite simple.

    Step 1) Power off your phone.
    Step 2) Plug into the stock charger and stock cable and allow the phone to boot into Charge Only mode.
    Step 3) Allow the phone to charge for at least 3.5 hours for the RAZR, and 5.5 hours for the MAXX. To be sure you've reached a 100% charge, briefly press and release one of the volume control buttons.
    Step 4) Once the phone is fully charged to 100%, remove it from charge and power up normally.
    Step 5) Use the phone normally over the next day or longer, until the phone displays the "Low Battery" pop-up warning at 15%.
    Step 6) Re-do steps 1 thru 4.

    You're done.
