    My V600 is about seven months old. Suddenly, the battery is going almost
    totally dead in 2 - 3 days, and that's with almost no use. I've checked
    that Blue Tooth is not enabled. What else could cause this..?

    Batteries age. Expect no more than a year of good service. New ones can
    be bought on ebay for under $10 now so it's not so bad having to replace
    them and keeping a spare.

    I would reccomend buying the OEM battery, they just work better.

    Sorry, but Lithium batteries don't age like that..! Seven months..?

    My SprintPCS phones gave us more than five years of use before the
    batteries started going south.

    I'm just stating what's been my experience. With every Motorola phone
    I've had since the Startac, I've had to replace the battery after about
    a year. That may be uncharacteristic for LiON batteries but it is,
    nonetheless, my experience. I do agree that 7 months is not normal but
    he may ave had a bad one - maybe it's still under warranty.

    Yep, me too. Date code is on the battery, Moto will warranty one year from
    that date.
