    my D3 has great battery life and perfect GPS, I agree the camera sucks but I do get those annoying restarts every now and then too!

    The restarts and spontaneous reboots forced me to put her on medical leave until she gets an update. ICS preferably.

    My Droid 3 started to smell like burning it over heated so bad when then when i slid the phone open i noticed it had melted the key pad . I have Verizon and they told me i was somehow my fault my phone melted and i would have to pay to replace it. I have had appalling customer service. The Droid 3 in my opinion is dangerous and i was lucky it didn't burn down my house.

    My droid started acting up several months ago. It started turning off randomly at first then it wouldn't turn on at all. I went to take the battery out and to my surprise the battery had become swollen or something. I got a new battery and within a few weeks it started turning off randomly as well! Then it wouldn't survive off of the charger. And then, it wouldn't turn on at all! SO annoyed! Since I am at home most of the day I leave my wifi on and use my home internet instead of my data. I read somewhere that when the Wifi is used too much it starts having problems. But I don't understand why it would do that!

    I'd say that the second battery that you bought is bad as well. A swollen battery is definitely a bad thing - dangerous as well, as it suggests that the battery pack could combust.

    I have no idea where you read that about using WiFi. I use WiFi all of the time and my phone is better, with better battery life, with WiFi connectivity than with mobile data.

    At this point I would not buy a battery for the D3 from anybody but Motorola, unless you know it is in the retail pack. A lot of the cheap Amazon batteries are, I think, used batteries. Moto still sells the extended battery, but you need to buy the door as well.

    Battery BF6X (Extra Capacity) - Motorola Mobility LLC. USA
    Extra Capacity Battery Door for DROID 3 - Motorola Mobility LLC. USA

    It's expensive, but it should be a full capacity battery, and will give you about 20% more battery than the standard. If you are not doing so already, I'd also suggest using the stock Motorola charger and cable, just to make sure that a cheap charger isn't overcharging the battery and causing all of those problems you've had.

    Of course, if you have a D3 you may be close to upgrade time. It may be better to use that money on a new handset.
