    I have a Motorola Defy with a peculiar problem. The phone is currently off but plugged into the wall and appears to be charging as it has the white light on to the left of "Motorola" on the phone. After a while it will turn on, presumably after it has charged enough so that it has power to turn on. However at this point that same light turns red and flashes and the phone says "insert charger". After a little while it will power off presumably because it wasn't charging and so ran out of battery. And then the cycle repeats.

    I would think that the problem was with the charger and that I should just get a new one, but it seems as though the problem is something else since it appears as though it is charging successfully until the phone is turned on. I have tried just turning the phone off every time it turns back on but this doesn't seem to net me any more battery life--it just goes through the same cycle each time. Please help! Having my phone for 1 minute out of every 20 is not real useful!

    Sounds like a bad battery.
