    Bluetooth headset active most of the day, Jivetalk active in the background, 1-2 hours of calls a day, 20-25 messages/emails a day. Usually down to 1/4 by 6:00 PM. Recharge every night.

    Do most of you keep the LED indicator on or just when you want to know if there is coverage in the area?

    Re: How long does your Pearl's battery last?

    About 2 days

    Calls-not significant, are only made to make quick "important" conversations. 1 hour at most/day.
    Text/emails-Texts vary by day, about 400 texts per month and a few emails every day. Everytime I get a message, a really long song plays too.
    Browser-Few times a day
    RSS Feed-On all the time, and automatically attempts to download every hour throughout the day (auto downloads full stories and pictures). I read it several times a day.
    Misc. Apps-Rare to few times a day.
    Standby-unknown. How is this possible? I play with my phone too much!
    Auto-off: No
    Average bars of reception: 4-5
    Bluetooth: rarely on
    Standby: I use this as much as I can as a "lock" feature, but I use it while I sleep too hoping it saves battery.
    Auto-dim: Yes
    Backlight brightness: 100
    LED indicator for coverage: No

    Also the many many times a day I look at my phone just to see if I missed a call or message. I also carry an extra battery so that I can drain my current battery (hopefully it conditions it well!). I do not have jivetalk or use instant messaging that much.

    Also on average, how many bars of reception do you get?

    After 20 hours, I'm down to about 20%. Jivetalk on the entire time. And I'd say semi heavy usage. I message and browse web more for most of that 20 hours, than make calls ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Usage with Seidio Slim Extended Battery:

    Very light voice usage (less than 20 minutes per month)
    Moderate to heavy texting (long distance friend from camp who recently went thru some personal issues)
    Browser constant unless at home (I have a PC at home)
    Standby only at night (when sleeping...red LED and screen keep me awake)
    Coverage LED off (green LED drives me INSANE trying to sleep with it on)
    Auto Off disabled (don't want to turn my BB off)
    Reception up to 5 bars (used at home mostly)
    No BlueTooth (no need for it with such light voice usage)
    No Auto Dim (screen dimmed is too dark to see)
    Backlight set at 10 (unless outside then bumped up too 100)
