***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
motorola droid battery drain

For about the past month my Droid will hit around 70% battery and then just drop to 0% instantly. Today a yellow triangle with an ! came up.  What the heck does this mean and what can we do about this??

Exactly which Droid model phone do you have?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I would certainly be concerned about this rapid battery drain and now the triangle. Let's get this resolved.


As Ann154 asked, what Droid model phone do you have? Has the phone been dropped or wet at all? Are you able to run a device health check? To do so, you can download/open the My Verizon Mobile app > select Menu, (3-lines upper left) > Devices > select your device > Manage > Run Health Check.


You will see a Results page with Battery, Performance, Connectivity, and Storage. If any category is in yellow or red, please open to see what is causing issues.


Please keep us posted.

I'm thinking you are in an Android Recovery screen.

When you are there, attempt to press Power and Volume Up simultaneously, or Power and Volume Down.

Do you get a list of options? Use Vol Up or Vol Down to scroll. Select Wipe Cache Partition, then reboot now.
