HTC Chacha is a great phone. Its been 6mos since I bought one. QWERTY keypad + touchscreen is the best. I had a full touchscreen phone once but its so hard to create a txt or email. Easy with HTC Chacha. I know that battery life is so short. My resolution, I bring my USB cord everyday. I charge at home or at work. If you love applications that require a full touchscreen phone, this is not the phone for you. Only apps I use are facebook, twitter, Market, Gmail, antivirus, color flashlight, photoshake apps2sd, equalizer, angry birds. BUt im more on txt messaging and calling. If there's another HTC Chacha type phone avail here, I'll definitely buy one.

HTC Chacha battery issue.
I found this on google forum please let us know if it helped.
it has alreadt helped one user.

Solution for HTC CHAHCA android 2.3.3.

Dear all,
My GF's phone had the same problem. I've been reading this thread and tried all of the proposed solutions (Blue-tooth on, Fast Reboot(99cent), sense options off, even did a Factory reset) but none worked. Somewhere, I can't recall where, I found an other work-around, and it looks like it works for us.
Since all other solutions didn't work for us, I'm not sure this one will for everybody.
Here it is:

- Download the App "Proximity Screen Off" (by Shailesh Soliwal).
- open it(see note below) and select the box for "Enable Device Admin" (give permission).
- "Disable in Landscape" selected.
- "Enable during call only" NOT selected.
- Both "Cover..." boxes are NOT selected.
- "Disable Accidental Lock MUST be selected.
- For "Timeout", we have 1 second.
- Press the "back" button on the phone.
- Chose "Start Service".

Running 2 days now and battery usage is back to normal.
Good luck, hope it helps you all. If so, let Google know.
Hopefully with the next update it's solved.

Note: The app also comes with a nice "ScreenOff" shortcut you can place on the desktop. Not to be mistaken with the "ProximityScreenOff" app itself when opening :)

I'm keeping my fingers cross that this works till Google fixes this bug.:(

here's d link 2 d application..

Chacha is a good phone in many ways ..but

The internal storage of chacha is included the sd card , which mean even i move all my download apps to sd card , it still influence to my internal storage...512 is not enough for user that love to download many apps ... no matter how large is your sd card .. when your internal storage lower than 20mb.. sync stop ..... and you probably cant download anymore apps..

Chacha is a sleek n nice cell phone bt the problem is with the battery life line. As well as it being heated when charging and also used for a long time. Htc guess chacha 2 will be better. Thanks and kind regards.

Any Android phone's battery will drain easily and phone getting hot is not the issue with only HTC ChaCha, it happens almost on every phone that uses Android. Developers have to work a lot on Android and hopefully version 4 onwards you may not face this problem. Kill tasks that you do not require and half of the problem is solved.

Else, just go for a nokia or blackberry series simple phone. Android always EATS - HOGS battery like anything. Got it?

G - Search + G is the default shortcut to access gmail.
Perhaps, you are accidentally pressing the search button? Just check the quick launch (settings > applications > quick launch), and try disabling them.
Also, you can try factory resetting the phone.

I called up HTC service centre, and they are saying the same thing. Currently no updates. Is there any way to update the software without doing OTA?
