Just Shutting Down doesn't seem to "reset" the phone enough. ElGecko had something similar and he exchanged his phone and got a "better" one that doesn't have the problem. YMMV.

I've "seem" to have worked around my battery issues by enabling WiFi, GPS, Sync and the Display Icon on the Power widget. (And what DOES that Display button do ANYWAY????)

Using this config after a battery pull and restart, I'm holding steady without battery use going vertical downwards.

OTOH, don't wait too long before returning your device and getting another. I'm waiting one more day and if I can't get battery consumption under's exchange time.

Best of luck.
Thanks, Deke60.

I'm not using JuiceDefender. I will try the battery pull, thanks.

For some reason, it's doing a little better today. I will give it over the weekend to decide for a return. From all the posts I see on the OE battery life, I'm starting to wonder if this is a bug/first batch of phones issue.

I haven't use the Google Wallet credit yet/it's under 7 days. I guess I would lose the $25 if I returned the phone.
