    LOL you just went back and did some math didn't you? hmmm...

    Looks like you either need to do some more or produce a bill displaying such cause we don't believe it for one second.

    Re: Battery Life, What are you guys getting?

    i grabbed a few random bills that i could find, i took pictures of em cause my scanner isnt hooked up and im not posting personal info on the net, and for clarification, in my original post i lumped text messages into sending but its split into sending/recieving on the bill... i didnt diferentiate for two reasons, 1) the phone company doesnt when they charge for texting and 2) it takes the same amount of radio power to send and receive, as well as reply and or be notified... anyways, im done splittin hairs, thats the truth, take it or leave it im not out to prove anything, and here we go:
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/_jack_attack_/2130621898/" title="bill 1 by Thingus995, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2011/2130621898_67408b4134.jpg" width="500" height="333" alt="bill 1" /></a>

    Re: Battery Life, What are you guys getting?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~everyone is saying how many they send not how many they send and receive so don't try and throw people off. Anyway I get about 2 days with heavy usage. I send about 2000 per month so not as many as some people claim but still more than nothing. I can get up to like 4 days with light usage a few texts each day and little to no browsing or phone use.

    Re: Battery Life, What are you guys getting?

    im not trying to throw anyone off, receiving a message taxes your battery life
    as does sending one, and if you think that it doesnt you are delusional but dont take my word for it, try it yourself, its a simple enough experiment. charge your phone completely, and let it sit while you have people (deliberately for this little experiment) text, email or pin you on bb messenger, then check your battery after an hour. this forum is supposed to be about helping each other and learning new things about something we all have in common, but it is now apparent that some people cant have a mature conversation and this thread has become a place to criticize and belittle someone for making a typo...

    No one is belittling anyone. I was just stating that its nearly impossible to do 2500 text. If it was a typo, then my mistake. It still didnt make what I said wrong, I was referring to you doing 2500 text a day. And your right, this forum is made for people to help people thats why I am here. Im sorry if you felt that I was ganging up you. But as for battery life, texting def does drain the life. I do about 200-250 a day and a little bit of internet and about 20 emails and my battery doesnt even last 3/4 of the day. Im wondering if its the battery or if its the phone. Im going to try a new battery on wed and see what happens.

    i actually wasnt directing that comment at you however i appreciate your willingness and decency for apologizing, so thank you for that... it was a typo however, and my comment regarding the belittling was aimed at a couple of the more recent posts... anywho, i find, that the standby button is an absolute lifesaver and if i cant touch my phone for half an hour or so, its on standby as well so an accidental button press doesnt fire up the backlight... let us know how your new battery works out

    yeah I will def let you know how the new battery works out.. Perfect example, I took my phone of the charger at 1030 this morning and I have done about 15 text today (usually dont do a lot on weekends) and its now 3:56pm and its at 35% battery life. To me, that doesnt seem right. I now have it on the charger because Im sitting here at my computer. But, I shouldnt have to worry about charging my battery and Im not even at days end yet.

    Re: Battery Life, What are you guys getting?

    Well, Im a tech for sprint so it wont be a problem swapping out the battery. Im not running any applications. Today I havent made one call, Ive sent exactly 4 text. My GPS locator is on and Im always connected to the BES. That shouldnt drain my battery that quick though.
