    Is there a battery charging indicator when the phone is turned OFF but charging?

    Before I got my Droid X a month ago I had an LG "dumb" phone that said the words Charging on the screen when the phone was turned off but the charger was plugged in. After the battery was fully charged the message went away. This was nice because you always knew what the charger was doing.

    When I plug the charger into my Droid X there is a charging indicator for the first several seconds then the screen goes dark.

    Is there a way to turn on a battery charging indicator like the LG phone? I have installed a battery app that gives the remaining charge percentage on the home screen but I haven't been able to find an app that gives an indication when the charger is plugged in.

    Thanks.

    IIRC, I think if you just press the home button while charging the battery percentage shows up without the X turning on.

    I pushed the home button and nothing happened so I tried pushing all of the buttons on the phone. When I pushed the power button on the top of the phone (not long enough for the phone to turn on) a battery charging gauge appeared.

    Thanks for your help!

    That's it. Knew it was one or the other. Glad you got it figured out.
