OS upgrade .185 seems much better for battery life
I'm very excited!! After installing upgrade .185, my battery life is much improved, at least so far. After 6 hours, I"m still at 95%! I'm not sure how that's possible, but I'll take it!
Who is your carrier? I am thinking of upgrading, but again, I am hesitant because I am currently a Mac user. Blaaaaah!
I'm happy for you. I'm soo getting a windows prgm for my Mac.
Thats great news my friend! Congratz!

I'm with AT&T. Before the upgrade, I was getting maybe 10-12 hrs on a charge. I'm hopeful this trend will continue throughout the day and means the battery life issue is fixed!
where do you download this new OS? I am on at&t and have the bold (US released phone).
How is the INITIAL memory and memory leak?
On .167, I booted up with 31 MB free (27 MB after apps installed).
On .162, I booted up with 45 MB free (41 MB after apps installed).
On .167, I would be down to 20 MB free by the end of the day.
On .162, it would take a few days to go down to 20 MB or less.
I started with .162 (Rogers), went to .167 (AT&T) and went back to .162. Before I try .185, I'd like to see how the memory leak is, plus initial memory free on bootup.

.190 gave me 57 Meg on boot up
.190 gives me 68mb on boot and stays at about 40-52 throughout the rest of the usage until the next battery pull lol

I'm not sure about the memory leak. Currently, after around 11 hours since battery pull and charging, I have around 27mb. I'm more concerned about the battery at this point, and I still have 85% after 11 hours. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
.190's battery life sucked I got 4 hours of standby today before I was in the red. Going to .185 right now.

of people have AIDS
but no one wears condoms
Update on battery life; looks like the reason my battery is lasting so long today is because my phone has been on EDGE most of the day! I'm in a basement. Don't know what's up with 3G today. I've had 3G in this basement before. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
