Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3
Can i find out why my phone dies out after i fully charge the Battery?
It would be helpful to know just how quickly the battery is going flat, and I'm assuming there's no history of the phone having been damaged, but... Try swapping the battery for one from a friend's phone. If that cures the problem, you need to buy a new battery (they don't last forever). Otherwise, try charging the battery fully in a friend's phone using their charger, then see how long it lasts. If this lasts much longer, the problem is that the phone/charger combination isn't charging the battery properly. Mix and match chargers and handsets (mark which are yours before you start, or you will get mixed up) to identify where the problem lies. If the battery isn't old and tired, and the phone is charging it properly, then the problem must be that the phone is drawing excessive current. This could be because you've got it set up to do some power-hungry thing (backlight continuously on, playing MP3s or FM, promiscuously Bluetoothing or IR communicating, etc). Shut down all the functions you don't actually need at the time and see if that makes any different. Once you've eliminated all those, you're left with the liklihood that the phone has a fault which is making it draw excess current. Not good news, but at least you've eliminated all the other possibilities. A.

What is supposed to be the expected battery life of this phone? How often does one need to get a new battery? I've had a similar problem. It keeps going down to low battery usually after 20 min. of talking or a couple of hours sitting. Then I go to charge it and the battery shows as charge complete in about 20min. When it starts to think it's low again It will keep beeping that it has a low battery, which is so annoying. It used to go out a few hours after that, but now it doesn't go out for almost a day, and I have to keep hearing that beeping if I want to let the battery die down completely before recharging. Anyway, what I'm thinking is, if you have a problem similar to this, maybe it's not actually the battery, but software or firmware in the phone. Because for me it seems that it just keeps saying that the battery is low even when it is not, unless it's plugged into the charger. And how annoying indeed- it would be nice if you could turn the low battery audio alert off.

I had this same problem months ago on my Motorola C261. The battery dies quickly after charging. The battery was only lasting me a day. I solved the problem by cleaning the electrical contacts on the battery and cellphone (i.e. where the battery makes contact) with a pencil eraser.
Initially, I tried all of the solutions offered online (e.g. using a new battery, using different chargers, and charging from home & work), but that didn't work.
I remembered that electrical cleaning tip from reading the manual --yes, someone actually reads the manual-- of my home cordless phone.
So far, I have charged the phone over 20 times now without any more battery problems.

Ok first of all you should never let a phone die out of charge at all.IF it dies out of charge there are chances it might charge again once you charge it but in some cases it wont, you need to boost your battery just like jump start your car.It cannot be done anywhere except some service centre. If you are not taking to your service center , then you need to buy a new battery.

Whenever you first purchase a device you must charge the phone fully otherwise if you charge it partially an then use it it will never charge good. You may need new battery see if youe warranty covers it \. If you are within 30 days of purchase you can exchange it at no cost!
