Here is the details. I 1st got the phone Feb 10th. Nearly all the time the phone is just in standby. I will make up to 10-15 minutes of calls in one day. The 1st time I charged the phone i only got a little over 3 days standby. The next few times a little bit more. But after that I was lucky to get less than 2 days of standby. I exchanged this one on March 3rd with bestbuy since it was within their return exchange policy.

The new one I got the 1st charge I got about 5 days standby. The next few I got a little more so I thought so far so good. Although its not the 14 days advertised that its supposed to get. I wasn't sure what to think of that as my last phone LG PM-325 got 7 days so this was almost as much. So at this point this is 4 cha...

From everything that I've learned from Verizon reps AND here on these boards...the one problem that people have is with the battery (on any phone ) at first. When Verizon sells you the phone there is hardly any battery power. You NEED to allow it to drain completely and then full recharge it at least 5-6 times for the battery to hold a really good charge. Just what I've learned from reading and listening. Hope it helps!

I just finished charging the phone. Its been off of the charger for a couple hours now. Its probably been charged at least 10 times before this. I'm going to track exactly how long this charge lasts to see if there is significant improvement. I'm just really peeved at buying a phone that is supposed to get like 14 days of standby time and so far I've gotten 5 days best so far. Checking the phone info just after posting here phonescoop lists even more than 14 days (18.3 to be exact). Is that information based on user feedback reports or manufacture specs?

Well to update from my last post. The full recharge only lasted abo7ut 3.5 days of standby time. I only talked on the phone during that time about 5-10 minutes. So please someone tell me am i supposed to wait more charges to see the potencial Kendallish mentioned or do I contact Motorola and have them do something?

If you figure something out, let me know. I've had a KRZR since the beginning of January (it's a VZW KRZR), and I currently get at most 2 days of standby. It drive me crazy.

Maybe I'll try stopping off at a VZW store to see if they'll replace it. I'll let you know if I find anything.
