Default if your cell phone battery dies fast...

your phone may be bugged! pretty funny video.. im still confused about how this whole phone bugging thing works, is it basically apps u can load on smartphones that will transmit the stuff back to you?

or you may just have a motorola ... or any sprint phone with "direct connect". direct connect kills the battery on my work phone and i never even use the service.

The OEM KRZR batteries on four different phones that I know of were toast within a year. My $5 ebay replacement battery has outlasted the original by six months now.

I got my motorola rizr almost 2 years ago and the battery is still going strong.

I charge it once a week (basically whenever I charge my ipod).
