Need to check Bluetooth and wifi are off.also if the signal bar is weak this will cause phone to hunt for nearest mast continually which uses up battery power.turn the brightness of the LCD down more than usual .if this does not improve battery life get new battery.
If your battery only lasts 4 hours tops, it could be defective. Best thing to try is to swap batteries with your son - if your phone lasts longer on his battery, that's the problem. I'd recommend taking the phone back to the Verizon store you bought it from. Also, make a habit of closing out of all apps that you are finished using - apps running in the background use battery as well.
Take your battery out and see if it feels swollen, this sounds like a classic case of a failing battery, either it is too old and will not charge, it has gotten too hot, or it has received improper voltage.
I dont know if this will help you, but it helped me. I had the same problem, with phone not holding charge and getting really hot both during and after complete charge. I needed my memorycard from my LG to my other phone, so I took it out, and off course the phone needed to be charged so I charged it, and... it did not get hot at all, and when it was finished, the charge lasted a day and a half!! Now the problem is I cant use the memorycard anymore in my Viewty :S Win/Loose situation i guess....
The problem could be one of two things - the phone, or your charger.
Most likely the problem is with the phone, since it's pretty rare for a charger to cause problems this severe. I would recommend taking it into your carrier's local store and trying to get it replaced.
Personally 10 to 15 minutes is not normal, I have had my 755p battery get hot after a couple of hours of straight talking, but not right away.
I would just take it back where you got it and tell them the problem that you are having and get another Treo. I have owned all of the Treo's ever made and they make great phones.
It does take some getting used to but the pros vs the cons of owning a Treo are much greater. Blackberry has come along way with their phones and if you are used to the Blackberry then the Treo just might not be the phone for you.
To get back to your question if the phone getting hot is normal, no, but it will happen from time to time when talking on the phone for long periods of time.
try doing a hard reset just make sure you hotsync first so you can backup all your information. Always keep in mind the software you have loaded write it down and the website you got them from along with any registration codes. when doing a hard reset you will lose all the information and programs on the phone basically it will take you back to the way you first bought it.
How to Hard Reset a Treo 755
To perform a hard reset/clean wipe of a Treo 755, do the following:
1. Remove the battery cover from the back of the device.
2. Press and hold the power (red phone) button.
3. While holding the red power button remove and replace the battery from the device.
4. When you see the "Access Powered" screen on the device take you finger off of the power button. At this point, you'll be prompted to erase the device by pressing up on the directional pad.
