    Ok. I unplugged my phone it had 100% and not even 2 hours later i'm at 80% also my data usage went from 3.8GB to 4.5GB and I want even on anything. Anybody know what the top item is in the picture of battery use?

    Are you using a dock? Rild is your problem. Do a simulated battery pull, hold volume down and power at the same time, until the phone shuts off, then release and the phone will power back up.

    This is a known issue, and it comes from using a dock from what I've read and heard.

    Hope this helps?

    I had this exact same problem today! Rild was top battery user by far. I've read that is has to do with the cellular radio, but I have no idea why it would drain the battery. This is the first time I've seen or heard of it.

    Also, Maps is the second largest battery drain (above Display and Android OS), and has been this way for over a week. Don't understand why. Maps has been KILLING my battery lately.

    Nite have you tried to manually stop maps? See if that helps. If you don't know go to settings applications manage apps find maps and stop it.

    So now RILD is associated with maps? Hmmmm, interesting. I use maps all the time and don't ever have this issue. :confused:

    EDIT: its thought that it could possibly be triggered by navigation or maps, but I've read in other places that it could be associated with using a doc. Bit its not.just moto that's having an issue with it apparently. A simulated battery pull does stop it.

    Hope this helps??

    Also, don't let the 100% to 80% thing fool you. The phone could have easily been at 91% when you unplugged since it floats between 90% and 100% while left on charge and after the initial charge cycle is completed, but the display will show 100% until it were to hit 90% while on battery power only, so you may have only decreased by 11%, rather than 20%. Still, RILD has gone hogwild. I'd love to know the real secret behind RILD. Let me do some more research.

    Just noticed how my post looks. I was a little drunk. I want to say stopping maps is (as far as I know) not a stop to this issue. It was just an idea to help your map issue.

    On another thought if it is linked to a dock then it was activated maybe that is why maps was initiated and using so much battery?

    I think its your 4G. Try turning off the LTE on the phone and it should help.

    There were two Maps services running. I removed some apps that may be using GPS for location, turned off Google location services and did a simulated battery pull. Maps isn't anywhere in my battery stats today, so I'm assuming the issue has been resolved.

    As for Rild, I think it was fluke. It was the only time I've ever seen it, and I find it odd that both the OP and I saw it on the same day. Strange.

    From the Motorola forums... RILD = Radio Interface Layer Daemon. I have no idea what it does.

    For me, the best I can tell, high rild is related to the phone and what tower I'm connecting to. I live on the south east corner of Lake Michigan. There are not a lot of towers here for a variety of reason. The closest (only?) one I know of is 10 miles to my east, and if I connect there I have no problem with rild and my battery easily lasts all day. But if it connects to the tower about 90 miles west of me (across the lake), I have very high rild and my battery might not even last the morning. I can tell this is the problem because my display clock is showing Central, not Eastern, time.

    I just wish I knew why it does it and could make it stop.

    If it is a 4G issue, turn off the 4G and use 3G.

    I thought I had tried this without success before, but after reading your post I thought I'd give it another try since it'd been a high rild day. So I put it on CDMA only, turned off the phone then back on (just to make my battery app start with a clean slate) and it's been running for several hours now without rild even showing up. Hopefully this may be a workaround!

    I was hopeful this would do it, but no joy. This morning was fine but this afternoon I noticed my battery dropping rapidly, the wrong time being displayed, and the odious 'rild' back with high battery use. :icon_evil:

    So it's not a 4G issue - at least for me.
