How long is the initial charge before you turn your phone on? This is killing me!
FedeX just delivered the Inc (ordered on-line Sunday night) an hour ago and I plugged it in to charge. Can't wait to use it - how long does the initial charge take?View 2 Replies View Related
I know a lot of people have been experiencing 4-5 hour time periods for charging the phone. If you want to cut that down to 2 hours or possibly less, just follow my fix steps!
1. Plug phone in
2. Turn Phone Off
3. Wait 5 seconds
4. Turn Phone On
Voila! But i still do the turning the phone off to get the full charge thing. Hope this helps you all!
My replacement Inc will be here on Tuesday. What is the recommended amount of time to charge the battery the first time? When I was talking to Tech Support when my first Inc was having problems he told me it was best to charge a full 24 hours the first time. I don't know if I can wait 24 hours after receiving my Inc before checking it out!View 9 Replies View Related
I've just received my new HTC Hero through the post. As i've read numerous messages regarding the poor battery life. How long should I initially charge the phone to get optimum battery life?... and should I leave it off or turn it on whilst charging?View 2 Replies View Related
First the camera button is unresponsive, and now after owning this phone for about a month, I'm at my wits end! Has anyone experienced this? Last night after leaving the movie theater I pulled my EVO out of my pocket and pressed the power button - the bottom row button lights come on, but the screen does not (battery is nearly full by the way). Pressing the power button makes the bottom buttons turn on and off, but the screen is off. I perform a battery pull, everything seems fine, I can get into the phone after it boots, but once I press the power button to turn the screen off, the screen never turns on again - but the bottom buttons light up like last time. Repeat, repeat, repeat. I have to perform a battery pull every time I turn the screen off. I've now changed the display timeout to 'never' - and if I keep the screen on permanently from the initial bootup, the phone works fine. Absolutely insane. If Sprint can't exchange the phone (due to lack of stock) I'm considering going back to a blackberry. This is my third EVO, and although I love it when it works, I need something a little more reliable.View 3 Replies View Related

i feel like my battery is not REALLY charging all the way, which may be for my lack of life in the phone as well. it only takes about 2.5 hours to FULLY charge from about 3-4% all the way to %100 with a green light. i have the phone ON while charging too so i just expect it to take alot longer... what is the average FULL charge time here?View 5 Replies View Related
Mine is already on 59 percent for the last 20 minutes, I feel charging is extremely slow on this. Or is it a defect?View 7 Replies View Related
I have been trying to charge this thing for about 4-5 hours now and it still won't get a full charge. I'm using a wall charge because I know that is more powerful than charging through my computer, but even with the phone off it is not getting a full charge. In comparison my Evo, Hero, Palm Pre and iPhone charge full within 2-3 hours, closer to 2 with the phone off. I'm just wondering if this is an isolated issue or more widespread.View 7 Replies View Related
I just bought an HTC Desire a few hours ago after having been tempted to get it having seen a colleague's Legend. Anyway, the manual that comes with it doesn't really cover that much, and the only information about that battery I can find is on the beginning where it says that it takes about 3 hours to fully charge it. However, it doesn't mention how long you should charge it on your very first usage: until the LED-light turns green, or more (like when I had to charge my old Nokia for 8 hours the first time)? If anyone would lend a helping hand, I'd really appreciate it.View 2 Replies View Related
Followup question--suppose you pop the battery in and attempt to turn it on right out of the box, could that break the phone forever?View 3 Replies View Related

I picked up a Droid X today from a local NJ authorized VZW dealer, not a VZW company store.It's my first "smart" phone and I hope it will be worth the extra $30 a month that I will be paying. So far I love it!Anyway, the guy told me to charge the phone all night long.I played with the phone this afternoon and the battery completely died at about 7pm. I plugged it in and checked it at 10pm and it was at 100%. Should I keep it plugged in all night long? The paperwork doesn't say to keep it charging after it's reached 100%.View 4 Replies View Related

I posted a thread about my battery life earlier this week, and I thank all the for the help! Here is another issue I am having that may be related. My phone takes forever to charge. Example: used my phone heavily this morning from 5:30 am till around 9am. Came home, battery was down to 15% or so. Plugged it into the AC charger around 10am, went outside and mowed the yard, etc. Finally checked the phone around 4pm, and it was still charging. Battery was showing 90% or so. Shouldn't it fully charge in around 2 hours or less? I did some research and found some people having charging issues after they upgraded to 2.1, which I did right after I got the phone. I did check with my local RS where I got the phone, and the guy I spoke with has a Hero, and his does not do this. He suggested I go to a Sprint store and have them look at it.View 8 Replies View Related
I know there are several posts about battery life this technically isn't one. I'm just curious how long a full battery charge takes?
My phone is currently "off" and plugged in. if i click the end button the little battery chart shows that it is charging because the meters are still climbing up. does it ever tell you that your battery is full?
Have any of you found that it takes a really long time to charge the phone to 100% battery? Maybe i'm coming from a sidekick and it was short to charge fully but is this true for you guys too or am i just not used to needing this long to charge a phone up?View 2 Replies View Related
My question is how long should I keep my new x10 mini charging for the first time? Is it OK to disconnect it when fully charge or should I leave it for some hours in charging?View 2 Replies View Related
My Droid Eris will charge from about 20% to 100% in a matter of 1-3 hours- it's always quite fast! Last night, my phone was at 20% when I went to sleep at about 12am and when I woke up at 6am it was only at 40%. The phone felt very hot. I took it off the charger and put it in another plug. It is now 4pm and the phone is only at 80% and at times feels hot. I checked out the cord and there are no lesions or breaks or any visible problems w/ the cord. I'm not sure what's going on- any thoughts? I'm going to take it to the VZW store to obtain an understanding. It's only been 3-4 months that I obtained the phone.View 2 Replies View Related
It wasn't long so I never paid attention before, but since the upgrade to 2.1 it takes my Moment around 2mins and 50secs to turn on (from black samsung logo to home screen) and about 50 secs before gps and everything is loaded up and ready to use. I timed it to find out if this was normal.
How long does it take your Moment to power on and load up?

I am expecting delivery of an Tattoo Ink today. It's been a bit delayed and there's no credit left on my old phone, so I have a backlog of calls I need to make.How long does it take before plugging a new phone into the charger for the 1st and it being safe to turn it on to use it for the 1st time? (without doing the battery any damage)I have searched through the online manuals but they are disappointingly vague about this.View 8 Replies View Related
We'll this is a deal breaker for me, after being pretty happy with the RUU update and the speed improvement it brought to the stock music player.When using the turn by turn navigation, every time the voice comes in the player puts itself on pause.After the instruction is over it remains paused instead of resuming.Then I have to manually hit play again to resume playback.This is a big deal while driving since I don't want to be fidgeting with my phone every couple seconds.This was not an issue with 2.1 , since as soon as the turn by turn instruction was gone the music would automatically resume.View 11 Replies View Related
My Samung Epic 4g was working fine until I plugged in the charger and it WOULD NOT CHARGE. tried another charger, nothing. Tested outlet, yes, it provides electric. So I turned off the Epic and IT WILL NOT TURN ON. Took battery out for a while, put it back in nothing.View 6 Replies View Related
in Virtuous Rom 3.1 the Google Maps turn-by-turn navigation voice doesn't work...instead of speaking the directions, the voice rambles on about XML versions and a random website in a slow-motion voice. I'm shocked that I can't find any information at all about this on XDA or here.Does this happen to anyone else who uses Virtuous Rom 3.1? I tried to contact RMK via XDA PM but he hasn't responded yet, sent last night. I would really like a fix for this, Google maps navigation is fantastic.View 2 Replies View Related
This has been an issue that's been bugging me the last few days now. The stock wall charger that came with my Droid X is the 5PN5504A, which has an output rating of 5.1V, 850mA. My understanding is that the mini-USB interface is an industry standard for power delivery to portable devices, which I take to mean that any charge source should work (wall charger, desktop PC, laptop) as long it has uses an USB interface. So any USB-->miniUSB cable can be used to charge any mini-usb device, regardless of power source, right?
I already have several other mini-usb devices, such as bluetooth headsets, which all came with their own wall chargers. However, I checked these chargers, and they all have different outputs: 5V @ 200mA, 5V @ 150mA, 5V @ 550mA. Because the default Droid X cable was so short, I was tempted to use these other chargers. I plugged in the 5V@150mA charger to my Droid X, and found that the phone does not show it's charging (the lighting bolt isn't there, there's no animation on the battery indicator). So then I switched to the 5V@550mA charger, and it DOES charge....................
Whenever I am on a WiFi network, I keep my 3G mobile network on. Mainly for visual voicemail purposes. So, does that mean that I am wasting my battery by having it on?View 12 Replies View Related

I have noticed this with HandBrake in the past, but why does it take so long to encode a video? I have an .AVI file of Edge of Darkness and it is going to take over 3 hours to encode. Why is that? I can take a movie DVD, rip and burn it in less than an hour.View 5 Replies View Related

do you charge, then tun off the phone and charge til green? Or do you charge, turn off and charge til green, unplug and plug back in, and repeat? I've tried both and honestly I think it may last longer with the charge, turn off and charge and then stop.does repeatedly bumping it to green 3, 4 or even 5 time hurt the battery?View 49 Replies View Related
I try to wait until my phone tells me my battery is low to charge.When I went to bed last night, my phone still had 1/2 the battery life left so I did not bother to plug it in.When I got up and went to use my phone,it had shut off during the night.Like any normal person I tried to charge it- no luck.The phone would not charge and would not turn on.I removed the battery and replaced it.Luckily it turned back on and I still had 1/3 of my battery life left.Has anyone else had this issue?It has randomly rebooted, but I've never encountered this before where the phone just shut down completely into a hard lock.Anyone else? What did you do?Did you have it replaced?View 4 Replies View Related
So, when you guys put your phone on the charger do you charge it for a long time like overnight or just for a few hours in the morning or during the day until the green light comes on? Also, when you are charging it do you just put it to sleep and have it charge that way, or do you do a full power off and charge it that way?View 18 Replies View Related

For those who don't know, USB charging is a lot slower than A/C (wall outlet) charging.This thread goes into it well.Wall A/C charge vs USB computer charge seems to have a dramatic difference in charging times.That said: anyone know a way to up the amps from a USB port? I'm especially interested for this in my car, where I have a USB port from my audio system, and would really like to charge my Incredible while I use it as a GPS.Any tips for this? I know "get a car adapter" is an easy solution, but I'd prefer avoid that if possible.View 5 Replies View Related
