Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

Why doesn't the Motorola V3 not hold a charge very long? I have shut down everything I can think of, I have changed batteries, but if I talk on the phone for 10 or 15 minutes it has to be charged. Sometimes I have to charge it 3 times a day

    I purchased 2 Razors V3, everything works on them and I really like them but they both have the same problem with holding a charge, when in use. When the battery gets low they just shut off. If I am not using them (have them turned off) they will hold a charge for several days. It seems like there may be something running in the back ground, when on, that drains the battery. The blue tooth is turned off, I have turned off everything I can find.

Battery is old. They wear out over time and need to be replaced.

try taking the battery out for 5 or 10 seconds then put battery back in. Hold the red power/end key down. If that doesn't work see if it will power on while charging.

Hi, I have a motorola V3xx and i have a problem with the battery life. I will charge it in full but then after a few hours the battery status goes from 6 to 4. after another hour (not using it) it goes to...

That definitely sounds like a battery problem to me. The battery is no longer holding a charge - there's very little chance that it's a hardware problem. New batteries can be quite pricey, especially if you buy them from your carrier. This website tends to have them fairly cheap - $13 for your battery. I would swap out the battery and your phone should be fine! Alex
