Question about Motorola Mobility A780 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My battery life

I just purchased the motorola A780 . I fully charged the battery and then took it off and the battery became fully drained. I took it back to the store and they gave me a brand new phone. The battery still doesn't last as long as its suppost to. After 10 hours of not using the phone,  a battery log is down, 5 hours after that, the battery is fully dead. How do I prolong that battery life and is their any settings or programs running on my phone that I can shut off to fix this problem?

The battery drains off very quickly as soon as i fully charge it and unplug it,, it hardly satys upto 12hours with minimal phone usage,, the battery metre usage shows cell standby 42% and also phone idle...

Go to teh phone settings, and under sync accounts disable all teh sync accounts that you are not using such as stocks etc. These constantly use up data and hence drains your battery as they do so in teh background. This should greatly improve your battery. If not, your battery must eb damaged and i woudl suggest you purchase an extended battery which may have up to 40% more battery life.

Hi Socrates,

If you purchase and install the Motorola Phone Tools (, the software will update the firmware in your phone when you connect it and run the update tools. It walks you through this (and makes you do it) when you start the software for the first few times.

This may help with battery life, but also keep in mind new batteries can be found on eBay for less than a dollar. Also, a good tip with any rechargable device is to charge it completely when you first get the battery, and then drain it completely without charging it right after that. This helps to set the "life" of the battery, and will generally increase the lifespan of it significantly.

Phone doesn't hold a charge

MzRendevous, It sounds like you do have a battery issue. Batteries for cell phone don't tend to last long, but if you do purchase a battery, try this to get longer life from the battery. 1. Charge the battery without using the phone until the battery is fully charged. 2. Once fully charged, use the phone like you normally do until the phone shuts itself down because there is no power. 3. Charge the battery again without using the phone until fully charged. 4. Then you can use the phone and charge it anytime you want. You can repeat these steps as much as you want, the more you do it, the more life you'll get from the battery. -- As far as the charger, if you have to adjust it to get it to charge, it could be the cord or the prong on the inside. I'd goto a store and test another charger, if it's available. You can probably get cheap batteries/charges on EBay or anywhere on the internet. Let me know if I was helpful for your questions. John
