    mine was kinda short-lived when i first got it, but i figured if cycling the battery (also LiIon) on my iPod Mini helped it last longer, then maybe it would help the phone battery too. i let the battery run all the way down, then fully charged it three times and now it will last for a few days between charges, depending on use. i also try and remember to keep bluetooth turned off when i'm not using it.

    i like mine. it was funky at first, being my first moto and all, but i really like it now that i've adjusted to it's funkiness. only thing buggy on mine is the frequent white screen thing, but all you have to do is close it and re-open it and it always takes care of the problem, so it's nothing bad.
