Hey, so I used to run about a 10% drain per day, but after doing a battery calibration, I have much more reasonable drain (1-2%/hour but that's if I don't touch my phone which is pretty rare).

As far as the whole thing about 3g battery problems, for me, it seems to be that whenever I have bad reception my battery takes a nosedive. Once it gets to the point that it's switching between 3g and 1x or going between 1 bar and none then there's a huge difference battery drain. I think the best option is either to turn on wifi (seems to help at least) or just turn off all radios and go into airplane mode altogether. Take a look at Battery Use in Settings-> About Phone -> Battery Use. If the biggest drops in charge level comes when your signal is bright yellow or red, then the problem is poor reception. Otherwise, I don't really know although I do see random little drops on that graphs that I can't figure out.

Anyways, I hope all of that helps.
