    Backflip Stuck In Reboot Cycle

    So I just got my phone today... installed a few apps on it, didn't run any of them yet though. As I was moving icons around, my phone shut off. Tried to turn it back on, it wouldn't boot. I thought maybe the battery had died (although I remembered it being at 50%) so I plugged it in and it just keeps rebooting to a screen where I can see the battery's charging process then boots again.

    I was able to get into the master reset screen but whether I press volume up or down for the reboot options, it says I chose whatever option is volume down and then hangs on that screen and goes back into the reboot cycle.

    Is there any fix I can do at home or do I take it back to the store?

    Return it. Even if there was somthing you can do, it wouls still be safe to return the phone due to the software issue

    Yeah, sure sounds like something's seriously defective.

    Take it back and exchange it for sure.

    I think the same thing happened to me!

    The first symptom - the battery level was stuck at 50%. Even if I used the phone for a long call, and "charged" it for numerous hours, it was stuck at 50%. Eventually, while charging, I noticed it going to the "reboot cycle" where the phone would turn on momentarily, the battery charge icon would show on the screen and then it would turn off. This would repeat a few times per minute. At the beginning I was able to get the blue screen (photo button plus power), but now I can't get it to turn on at all.

    I measured the battery voltage - the 3.8v battery measured around 2.7v, even after being plugged in to charge for a long while.

    Just recently, it did manage to go on for a few minutes (again showing 50% charge) but then died again.

    It would be interesting to see if it would work w/ a fully charged battery. I suspect a fault with the charging system (or some other weird fault). Anyways - perhaps this is more than an isolated problem if indeed my symptoms are the same as yours!

    Update

    Just out of curiosity, I went to a phone store to see if I could try another battery. When the charged battery was put in, the phone worked fine. When I put my battery in the other phone, it was just as mine was.

    So, either my battery suffered a premature death or there is something wrong with the charging function in my phone! Anyways - I ordered a new battery (I won the phone (and have no receipt) and unlocked it - so warranty from both the operator / moto were no good). We shall see!

    Anyone else experience premature battery death?

    In the end, I sent mine back to Motorola. It was defective and they gave me a new one.
