Re: stand by time is about 12 hours
1. Old battery: After a couple years of use, the battery simply can't hold a charge as well as it used to. If you are using an old battery, try getting a replacement.
2. Replaced battery with a NON-Brand name: If you replace the battery with a lesser expensive pack from china, they will typically use an inferior set of cells. Use only the name brand batteries for best performance.
3. You're in a location where you cannot pick up a DIGITAL signal. If you are roaming or unable to pick up a digital signal, the cell phone will constantly be searching for a tower wasting precious energy. For best standby times, make sure you are receiving a digital signal.
4. Battery charger malfunction: If you're accustomed to charging your battery with a wall charger, try charging it from your cigarette lighter in your car or with a different charger. If it works longer after doing this, drain the battery and charge again the way you usually do. If you're back down to only 12 hour stand-by, the usual charger may be malfunctioning.
5. Make sure your backlight is not on all the time. If your phone has a setting to keep the backlight on, turn it off.

If you use
a car charger, use a wall plug instead and replace the battery; because a lot
of car chargers can harm battery life…especially if that is all you’ve ever used.
Also check the settings on the phone, if you have disabled power saving
features that dim the screen after so many seconds then the backlight will
drain the battery very quickly. Use name brand batteries and not the ones that
come with the phone. If you have not tried to buy a new battery yet, the ones
that come with the phone can often ****. Finally, make sure that you do not
have a short in your wall charger and that the first time you use a new battery
you charge it fully to begin with and don’t charge it again until it is
completely depleted. Supposedly newer batteries do not have to be primed, but I
find it is a good practice anyway.
Its because ur internal memory battery is dead or no charge so please keep the unit charge in all possible ways for about 2 hours. Some palm tops have base stand and a seperate place on the base stand to charge the normal battery. So make sure u leave the unit for charge for a longer period of time say 5 hours.
Charging duration does not connect to battery lasting duration in any way.Optimal charging time is 3 to 4 hours.your battery will drain soon if you keep your touchscreen pressed continuously in your jeans pocket.Keep bluetooth switched off. Reduce the brightness of your mobile display. Play music threw headphone rather than using loudspeakers.
I'm not sure where you are, but I had the same problem in October 2007 and the help desk sent me a patch for the phone, because some MTN did some maintenances and changes that had the effect on the k-jam
with respect to your low Nokia 6680's low battery, what you need to do is to charge it while switched off for atleast 12 hours. It is possible for the phone to have 200+ standby time afterwards but that is if its not used at all. You should also disable the bluetooth, as well as the backup ligthing if switched on as all these can dramatically reduce the life of the battery.
First, to dim/undim the screen, hold down the power button for a few seconds. A quick press will turn it on/off. Also, when dimmed, if you tap the screen, it should be fully lit.
FYI...to change the brightness in either the plugged-in or battery mode, hold in the scroll dial on the left-hand side and press the navigation button (big round one on the front) either up (brighter) or down (dimmer).
As for the time, tap Start >> Settings >> System (tab) >> Clock and see if your time is off by 12 hours.
