You would have to specify which phone you are using but here are some possible solutions.
Keep in mind that even if the phone is not in use it will use some battery power.
If your phone does not have a strong signal, sometimes constant searching for a signal will drain your battery rapidly
If you are using a smartphone, there may be background apps running, try using a task manager app or use the phones settings to close apps.

What is year--make--model?
If something wrong with wiring circuit, somewhere, replacing the part won't fix it.
Make sure charging system is working properly. To look up wiring diagram, I need vehicle info. The battery lite is on even with key out? Unplug alternator, see if light stays on, check the alternator wiring connector.

Battery will not hold charge, something is draining, not a battery problem

Try disconnecting the battery (engine NOT running). Turn everything off. Touch the battery cable to the battery post - if it sparks a tiny bit, you can easily test. If not, use a multimeter (voltage setting) or test light between teh battery post and the cable to verify a drain. If you find NO drain that way, then nothing's draining your battery - you have a battery or alternator problem.

If you DO find a drain that way, then you have to disconnect everything electrical - one thing at a time - until the drain goes away. When it goes away, whatever you just disconnected is the culprit.

What can be the cause of my baterry easily drained or loss of power even though is a newly replaced baterry in my 93 honda accord lx two door..They even check my alternator and they found nothing wrong...

A mechanic would disconnect the battery and check each circuit for a voltage drain by disconnecting the fuses and breakers. Anything with a relay or way to use electricity such as a light bulb or switch can cause a small short to ground or voltage drain.

Battery draining

how old is your battery? if it is more than 4 years old, have it replaced. if the new battery still easily drains, then there is a problem with your alternator. your alternator is not charging your vehicle properly or adequately

I have Canon power shot S2 IS digital camera.I bought it around 2 years back.Now my camera is showing the sign of "change the batteries" even though the batteries are fully charged and the lens does not...

i suggest replacing a fresh battery will most likely solve your prob, overtime rechargeable battery can drain easily, try changing with a new battery and see if it does work well, there might be insufficient current, thats why it tends to drop of voltage easily upon using, 
there is a specified lifetime for rechargeable battery, depends on your usage and charging method, theymaybe fully charged but sometimes wont give you enough power to drive
