Default 7520 and Battery

Please Login to Remove!

The other night coming home my call dropped and (I found out afterwards) the wireless coverage was turned off automatically. When I attempted to recall, assuming the call had just dropped, I received a message that the battey was too low for wireless use. I plugged the 7520 into my car charger but still was unable to use the phone. I drove home (about 10 minutes) with the same message popping up, even though I could see the phone was charging.

Does this mean the 7520 cannot be used unless there is some charge on the battery?

Thanks
Steven

It does require a certain amount of charge before use. However that does seen like a long time since it just displayed the message and you immedially put it on a charger. What charges are you using? pink

My wife has a 7520, I asked her and she confirmed that it does need a certain amount of batter life, but if she plugs it in right away, she can use it within a couple of minutes. She said that she has never waited ten minutes after plugging it in.

I a carry spare battery, I'm on mine too much to worry about a drained battery.

I've had the same experience with a drained battery - using the car charger, the USB cable, and the AC adapter. When the battery has drained to the point that the radio shuts off, I have to allow about 15 minutes of charging time (with the BB ON, less with it off) before it will allow the radio to be fired back up.

Kinda sucks, huh?
