    ok id charge my 6 month old moto droid overnight, it would say 100% on the battery and in 3 mins it would be at 20%, the past few times ive restarted it it would go back to 100% but it wont anymore so verizon is sending me a refurb one, id like to know if there are any fixes to my problem, and also how to basically take an "image" of my home screen to transfer to my refurb droid, so i dont have to make folders and re create widgets again

    also they arent giving me a new battery, just the phone...

    thanks in advance,

    nick

    If it was rooted, then it would be simple, but I'm assuming you didn't do that.

    The only app I can think of is MyBackUp. I think that's the right spelling. It has the option to save your home screen shortcuts and widgets, but when you restore, the widgets don't work and you would have to reapplying them again.
