    Default rumored firmware update

    After having stellar battery life all weekend on wifi I'm hoping the rumored firmware update will fix the 3g battery drain. Go from 100 percent to 70 percent in a little over 2 hours on 3g

    That's my only complaint as well. Surprisingly the display isn't a big battery drain as most androids, and 0% brightness is actually pretty bright. But if 3g is going you can watch the battery go.

    I heard if you have less then -95dbm strength then its gonna drain fast. I have -85 with full bars. Not sure why its low with full bars unless thy has nothing to due with signal strength in DB...?

    Higher numbers are bad...lower numbers are good. The lower the number the stronger the signal.

    If it means anything I have -94 so maybe that's hurting it. Wish we could go get internet at home. Hopefully the update addresses this.

    This update will address the fact that you can't get internet at home? How do you expect your phones software update to do that?

    I believe you can only get anywhere from 6 to 9 hours (depending on signal strength) per charge when on cell data. How long does your battery last while on cell data only?

    There are times when I get 4-5 hours and then there are times when I get 8-9 hours. It really depends on how you're using it, where you're using it (signal strength) and screen time. Like I've noticed, at home I get really good signal strength so I can go around 10 hours on cell data (3g) before I have to charge it again. At work I have terrible signal strength so it usually goes 4-6 hours before I have to plug it in; I don't even use it much at work either. On wifi I can easily get 14-15 hours per charge.

    Hope this helps.

    I meant hopefully it addresses the signal strength hurting battery life, I've never had phone affected by that so badly.

    It's just a rumor at this point.

    It's a rumor from a guy who is over the east coast market of VZW. Originally saw the thread on another razor forum. Maybe a Google search can link you to it.

    Motorola has yet to confirm yet alone acknowledge a firmware update for the Droid Razr. These rumors on a firmware update are nothing more than that... rumors.
