    Hi Everyone, I have dug out an old 9780 which I need to use as a spare phone for when travelling. I wanted it to stay powered off in my bag to only be used when my iPhone battery is dead.

    How do I shut it down completely so the battery remains charged for many days in a fully shut down state? When I power down by holding the red button it displays the shutting down message and I assume it’s off but any time after this it wakes instantly if I press a button, as if it’s simply on standby. It doesn’t boot up from scratch unless I refit the battery.

    How do I fully power it off so it doesn’t use any battery at all?

    Thanks for your help.

    BBOS doesn't turn off completely. It has a low power mode.

    You will have to remove the battery for a complete shutdown.
