    My battery indicator is acting funny.. LTE was turned on in our area yesterday and I have restarted my phone 3 times to reset the since on clock so I can get an idea of how long my battery goes.
    The first time I power cycled, by battery indicator went to a ? instead of showing fully charged. So, I power cycled again and it showed fully charged. This morning when I power cycled, it showed the ? again and has been that way for three hours now. anyone else having this issue?

    Ok.. my battery meter app must be skrewed up.. is still says ? in the icon, and when I go into settings-battery info, it still says I have a 100% batter even though I have been up and running for 2h 49m.

    This just started right after 4g went live.. how could that have anything to do with it?

    Call VZW or go into the store. I'll assume you need a new phone. Calling would be best.

    I would factory reset before turning it in. That's what they are going to do anyway. Factory reset may actually fix it. Give it a shot.

    Not to hijack this thread but how did you screenshot your battery indicator?

    I downloaded an app called "screenshot er", then before posting, I just cropped the top of the image off so it would only be the status bar.

    It is weird that it is behaving like this. I powered cycled again and this time it came back just fine(shows the correct bat level). I get the feeling when I fully charge it and cycle power, it will be there again.

    I will factory reset if it happens again and see if it fixes it. Then I think it will go back to the store for a replacement. I haven't had any other problems that I know of..

    Didn't know your phone has to be rooted in order to use it but thanks for the info.

    The battery in my Motorola Electrify quit working and I ordered the one I was told to order, when I get the battery and put it in, I get the message that says it's not verified. I pulled the battery twice and it's still saying that. Any ideas?

    First of start your own thread. Second talk to the supplier of the battery.

    Seems like there is a problem with the battery. Will need to send it to a Motorola authorized repairer to replace the battery. Hopefully you are still in warranty so could contact Motorola for advice.

    The only time I've seen the question mark in the battery icon, was when I put a third party battery in my phone. That was back when I had a droid 2. Obviously, you can't very easily replace the battery on the Razr. So if it's doing that on your razr, and you haven't done anything funky with your phone backing/battery, your battery/phone went crazy and you will have to take it in.

    You can screenshot your phone by holding down your -volume key and power button at the same time, hold till it clicks. If you hold any longer this will also reboot your phone.
