Check your charger. The prongs broke on my daughter's one week old charger and the store said it was the second one they'd seen recently.

If that is not the problem, take it in the store.

The battery inside this phone is an Li-Ion battery (Lithium Ion). These types of batteries you do not want to run down all the way, because this causes the battery's life to decrease. For the best battery life, keep the phone above 40%. Multiple small charges are better than longer charges.

Your contacts are automatically synced with your Google Account. If you are talking about syncing Facebook friends as contacts, you can find that in the settings app on your phone under the "accounts" section!

Great News Mike, The Motorola Electrify M will start getting the Jelly Bean update on 2/12/2013. Go to Menu, About Device and then hit Software update. They will be sending this out in stages so if you don't get it the first time just keep checking the Software update till it comes through. USCC Customer Crew

You can import and export .vcf files so yes you can. Sort of.

If you export the contacts, they show up in a single .vcf file. I copy and pasted to my desktop, opened with Notepad++ and changed an entry. Then copied it back to my phone and imported. All my contacts were duplicated!

So, not quite a seamless thing but you can see that you can do it.

But, there is a much easier way...use "mycontactsbackup". When you do that, your contacts are backed up to USCC (actually someplace else I believe but pretend it is USCC) and you can use the web based software to edit and maintain your contacts.

Not really. What do you want to split? Some apps work as if there are two parts to the screen but you can not open two apps side by side if that is what you meant.

Sim cards can be moved/removed, but your phone won't work as you expect without a SIM card. If the SIM card is the problem, go see your USCC retailer.

If you meant SD card, of course you can take it out. Remember that whatever you loaded on the card (apps, apps data, photos, music, etc)will not be usable on the phone if you have it removed. Of course, if it isn't working now...what would be the difference?

no, whatever you do do not take it out ans put it in another phone or anything, you could screw it up forever! format the sd card just like the phone tells you, i know, you have your everything on it, but keep in mind that ether way when the sd card needs formatted that its not functioning properly, it could be the death of it, save the money of going and getting the dang thing replaced and format it. promise ya, itll work good as new!

Hi heater, auto download is usually done when you have set this up in the Play Store. You can log in to the Play Store and check your setting and make sure you don't have the auto download checked. USCC Customer Crew

not 100%, it was made to fight better against water and it does do very well at that. if you read the box it came in it will tell you more, there is even a web site you can go to on it. but like i said it IS NOT 100% water proof, it is more water resistant than most but not all the way, keep it safe from it!

i would call 611 or take it to a tech, the best you can do at home is take turn it off for 15 minutes and let it reset, you cant take the battery out so you can fully shut it down, if the problem still exists take it to the closest tech and let them know every problem. they phone could be a bad phone, if they cant do anything call motorola and let em know!

Good luck with that problem! I'm on my 4th Electrify M - I keep having to return them because of the "lock-up" issue. The 4th one started doing the same thing - it locks up at random times and cannot be turned on without doing the power reset (holding down the power button and volume down button at the same time for at least 10 seconds). I have missed important phone calls, texts and alarms because it locked up and I didn't realize it. I have owned Motorola phones in the past and have never had an issue, but after this I will NEVER again purchase a Motorola. I can't wait for US Cellular to offer the iPhone in the fall - I will be the first in line and my Electrify M will be thrown into the closest river!
