Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Invalid battery, and unable to charge

Phone is brand new, bought today.
Got it home, asked husband to set up.. I left him for about 1/2 an hour..
Returned and he had removed the battery coverings and removed sticker from inside phone where the battery sits...
He said he thought that you had to remove the cover off the battery, hes never owned a motorola before...
I tried to put battery in phone to see if it would work, but 'invalid battery and unable to charge' are all that show on phone..
Went out bought another battery and same problem..
Please tell me that my husband hasn't just wasted my money on a phone we cant fix..

Bought brand new battery and discharging within 48 hrs

did you charge your battery for at least six hours before using it? New batteries are supposed to be charged for at least six hours before using it. If you didn't charge it, what you should do is boost-charge your battery with a genuine booster for some hours. Unless your battery is a fake, that should do it.
hope this helps

I started charging the new motorola battery I bought and for the past six hours the phone has not indicated BATTERY FULL. Is there any problem ?

NO need to worry,the brand new motorola battery needs to be charged for atleast 14- 16 hours. After you see a green light on it charge it for another 1hour . Enjoy your new phone its a Good buy.

Invalid Battery

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.
