Battery Tips

Battery life depends on the network, signal strength, temperature, features, and accessories you use.

  • Always use Motorola Original batteries and chargers. The warranty does not cover damage caused by non-Motorola batteries and/or chargers. motoriginal.gif
  • New batteries or batteries stored for a long time may take more time to charge.
  • When charging your battery, keep it near room temperature.
  • When storing your battery, keep it uncharged in a cool, dark, dry place, such as a refrigerator.
  • Never expose batteries to temperatures below -10°C (14°F) or above 45°C (113°F). Always take your phone with you when you leave your vehicle.
  • It is normal for batteries to gradually wear down and require longer charging times. If you notice a change in your battery life, it is probably time to purchase a new battery.
  • To preserve battery life, turn off your Bluetooth device when you’re not using it.

Contact your local recycling center for proper battery disposal.

Battery Installation

Battery Charging


New batteries are not fully charged. You can charge your battery by connecting the power supply to your phone’s mini-USB port and plug into a wall outlet. Your phone displays a full battery icon or Charge Complete when finished.

Tip: Relax, you can’t overcharge your battery. It will perform best after you fully charge and discharge it a few times.

Note: If your battery has been completely drained, it cannot be charged via the USB cable plugged into the computer (this connection will only maintain current battery life). Use a wall charger or car charger to recharge the battery. Some computer USB ports provide a higher current than others, and will provide more rapid charging.



Turn It On & Off

To turn on your phone, press and hold the Power/End key (power.gif) until the display turns on.

To turn off your phone, press and hold the Power/End key (power.gif) for 3 seconds.

Here are some basics: Press the Caps key (capskey.gif) to change between uppercase, lowercase, and caps lock within a text input mode. For more details regarding text entry.

You enter text and numbers using the phone keypad. When you select a field that requires text or numbers, the phone automatically selects the appropriate input mode. However, if you need to switch between modes, press the ALT key (altkey.gif). See the indicator at the top of the Home Screen to identify the current text mode setting. For details about the different text modes.

To display a list of options on the Home Screen, use the thumb wheel to scroll through the menu.

Often, turning the thumb wheel up or down will have the same effect as pressing the up or down keys of the navigation pad (regardless of the screen displayed by the Q). The thumb wheel can also be used to select the highlighted item by pressing the thumb wheel directly into the Q (a slight tactile click will be felt by the user when pressed).
