    Re: batt life

    Things you can do to help are: Set your screen brightness at 70 or lower, turn your status light off, and make sure to 'close' and app when you are done running it. Those are things that I've done and seem to help. Oh if you are using bluetooth, that is going to drain the battery, so turn it off when you are not using the headset.

    Also try not typing all in caps, it makes it seem like you are 'SCREAMING'. Good luck and hope this helps

    The other thing that you can do is set the auto turn off on and shut it down while you are sleeping

    What programs are you running on your device? 2 that I have used and seen run down battery life are SonaMobile media player and IM+ battery life seems to a little better now that im+ has straightned out though. I wasn't even making it a day on one charge. Good thing for an office and home charger. But then again I am using this thing usually about once ever 2 minutes all throughout the day.

    Also turn the wireless radio off when your in a area that doesn't have wireless service. You battery will drain like crazy baby. Hey, that rhymes :-)

    All of those things above, and with moderate use you should get two days on a charge. That's what I get.

    Re: batt life

    nepal96, Please turn the CAPs LOCK OFF, and use spaces following punctuation marks! It makes it extremely hard to read for some people. and others are reminded of situations they would rather forget.

    As to the Radio off where you don't have wireless service, remember, without a wireless service you're not getting a signal from your phone network anyway, so turning the radio off won't make any difference in using your phone, but your phone is constantly checking to see if there is a network available, so it's using a lot of power for nothing, depleting your battery.

    Thanks
    Rcbjr.
