I just bought this Motorola Razr phone a couple of weeks ago, and I keep having to charge the battery every night before bedtime. By morning, the whole thing is drained. I do not leave the BT on when not in use, and I do not use any other device.
What seems to be the problem?

1. Turn off your phone when it's not in use. If you're not using your Verizon Wireless Razr, then shut it off. Your battery will last much longer if you regularly do this. 2. Charge your phone less. If you charge your Razr nightly, then your cell phone battery won't last long. Try to charge your phone only a few times a week to extend the battery life. 3. Keep your Bluetooth turned off when you're not using it. Applications, like Bluetooth, are notorious for sucking the power from a cell phone battery. 4. Protect your Razr from extreme temperatures. Your cell phone battery lasts longer if kept at room temperature. 5. Discharge the Razr fully. Before you charge your phone, let it completely die. You can extend the life of the battery by regularly discharging and then fully charging it. 6. Leave the battery in the phone. Keep the Razr battery dry and free of dirt to prolong its life.
Well... I would say no.. Not worth battery.. I had the same thing happen to me where my phone wouldn't charge and we bought a new battery for $50.00 and then we find out my phone is shot.. so I would strongly recommend getting a new phone..
Drain the battery completely 2 or 3 times, then fully charge it and see how long it lasts. If this doesn't help then you might want to take it back to the store. Your phone is obviously trying to figure something out which is sucking down the battery. Bluetooh will drain a ton of battery out for long periods, hence keeping it hooked up in the car. I have gone through multiple razr phones in the past and they all sucked down batteries pretty quick so in the case, blaming the phone is an option :) . You can also try taking the battery out to give the phone a good restart, perhaps leave out for 30 seconds or so. I wouldn't recommend sending it in to Motorola, they like to find ways to charge you to just have it looked at.
your Phones battery could be potentially Leaking, and it may not be able to hold a charge anymore after how you have described the symptoms. Batteries that can no longer hold their charge expel all of the energy they would normally use to power the phone, and this generally causes excess heat around the battery compartment,
i would suggest purchasing a new battery, preferrably one created by Motorolla Specifically for your phone, when you have the battery, keep the phone on charge for a long time to ensure the battery holds its maximum charge !
Totally discharging the battery is the way to go. But what you can also do to use your phone in the meantime is this. Plug your charger into the phone withOUT your battery in. It will tell you "Unable to Charge." When it says this, put the battery in. It might tell you "Invalid Battery" a couple more times, but it did eventually say "Charging Battery" for me. After that, simply turn the phone on and it will return to normal. This is when you drain the battery completely. Once I did that, I did not get the invalid battery error again.
It's the phone itself that needs to be fixed. Buyer beware as they say about Ebay. There are cheap repair shops around depending on where you live. No more than $50. Might have to call around to fid one.
