Battery Drain While at Work
I am having problems with the battery life on my Skyrocket, but not all the time.
During the weekends or days off I can usually go all day and use 30-40% of my battery. This involves phone calls, texts, Facebook, some surfing, and usually taking a few pictures.
During the week while I am at work, I am lucky to get through a 9 hour day and still have enough battery to call my wife on the way home. This doesn't change when I turn everything off (WiFi, Bluetooth, etc) either. During the day the phone gets very warm several times. The battery display shows that most of the battery is being used by the display, but I hardly ever get the phone out of my pocket. I work in a aircraft processing facility and am constantly on the move around the shop & office. I did tried to just leave it sitting on my desk a couple times, and that did help the battery life. But it doesn't really do me much good sitting at my desk when I am not there.
Long story short, I cannot figure out what is causing the phone to get warm and drain the battery just at work. I have been through a factory reset, warranty battery, and warranty phone with no changes. I searched through the forum here and couldn't find a similar problem. I was hoping that someone in here had some insight into this.
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
