Tip & How-To about Sprint Vision PPC-6700 Smartphone


One of the annoying things I found as a 6700 owner is that I was always pocket calling people and that my battery had a very short life. my battery used to only last from 7am to 1pm before I had to change the battery or or plug inmy phone (PHONE ON A WIRE? this defeats the wireless phone theory). Now I can get a full day sometimes 2 days out of my battery because all the buttons are disabled from turning on the screen and the only button that turns on the screen is the top power button which shows the slide to unlock screen. when you have a incoming call the screen will offer you to slide to answer if you set it up with the easy to use settings that will be located in your programs folder after setup. the instructions for setting up this program are easy to follow at the download page.

Solution: Download and install this awesome app called slide to unlock.
It will save your battery if you set the settings to:

  1. lock when device wakes up to ON
  2. lock when back-light turns off to ON
  3. Power off in 30seconds
  4. but blank screen only OFF
  5. blank screen on talk I prefer OFF because you may need to look at something when talking. but you may squeeze more life out of your battery if you select on.
S2U2 is a simple lock/unlock application which has the iPhone style slide unlocking. It can be used as a screen saver while you don't use your device. And it has a CallerID function.

My Toshiba leptop battery runs out and goes from a 100% to 0% after 30-60 minutes. Is there a way to fix this, or it has to be checked by a professional?

Normally when the battry gets to that point the only way to fix it is to get a new battery. If you have had the computer for less than a year the battery may still be under warranty.

Once a battery develops what is called "memory" it is almost impossible to alter. Memory develops over time when the battery is not drained all the way and then allowed to recharge completely. Newer battery designs have preventives for this but still may happen.
