    Is it possible to prevent the screen from dimming and the warning message when there is 15% battery left? I would like the phone to take NO ACTION based on the battery power left. Impossible?

    It is with the current build... but my phone doesn't auto-dim things till it gets below 15%. So that's weird.

    Double check your dimming settings.

    No, he's reporting exactly what I see. When my phone gets to 15%, nothing changes, it's only after it drops below 15% that things dim on my phone.

    Why would I want to do that? I like that.

    By the way, mine is set to auto brightness.

    Because the phone lasts a crazy amount of time when it cycles under 15%. I would rather it not dim, unless I tell it to.

    Mine only lasts about an hour or so once it drops below 15%. It'll go for 6-10 hours at 15% though... and at that level, there's no dimming.

    I am bumping this up in the hopes that someone has a fix. I find the screen useless outside after the forced dimming. In low light conditions. I can't text because the keyboard no longer lights up below 15% this is especially frustrating sine we all know that there is was more then 15% left when these restrictions are imposed.

    Anyone have ideas to negate the below 15% restrictions on the screen and keyboard??

    Also in the same boat as the OP. My phone lasts maybe an hour AT 15% (yellow battery indicator). Yet it lasts forever UNDER 15 (red indicator)

    It's one of the most frustrating things about this phone. I know the battery is good for much longer, yet I can't txt in the dark, can't use the camera, and get annoying battery warnings all the time.

    Grrr. I hate the title of this thread! Once every week or so I see it and think that someone found a fix:eek:
    Can you please rephrase the title in the form of a question?:p

    +1 here too... this is one of the most frustrating "features" of the Moment, and I keep hoping for the fix too based on the title :eek:
