Default Battery discharging

has anyone had issues with the battery life of their T mobile Pulse?
I purchased mine in Jan 2010, and instantly loved it< fab phone and the battery life was OK, when I say OK it lasted about a day and a bit with reasonably heavy use. Then it went to a day, then 10 hrs, then 8 then last week, after leaving it in my pocket in a locker whilst I was working out in the gym (lucky it was in its little case that T mobile supply) it decided to discharge its battery and get very very hot in the process, gave me a shock when i put me trousers back on I can tell you!!!!. I took it back to the shop and they have sent it away saying that they couldn't replace it for a new one straight away as it was nearly 2 months old. Thinking about it if I had more time I would have argued that. Anyway I do miss it, and wonder if anyone else has had similar issues.

I too, have noticed how poor the battery performs on this phone and yes it does get very hot. I have not as yet found a solution and unfortunately the phone also takes ages to charge in the first place.

I have resorted to switching as many things off and turning of any auto updates etc just to get decent battery life and keep the phone cool.

I leave most options on mine turned off, set it to prefer 2G networks, etc and I get about two days out of mine. I'm not a particularly heavy user though, often only sending a handful of texts and emails a day.

I have noticed that it gets hot while I'm connected to Wifi. It may be worth checking if your Wifi has been toggled on because it guzzles battery. There's also no visual reminder that it's on unless you're actually connected to a network.

I use a lot of the CurveFish widgets to toggle everything off that I'm not using. Battery killers for me have been Wifi, Bluetooth, 3G (vs 2G), Autosync, and Background data. There's a widget to toggle the first four. Oh, and I keep screen brightness at 25%. That's plenty bright for me. Of course YMMV.

You must block out any network sucker programs that you might have working on the phone. Most of them connect automatically .. and THAT.. does consume a lot of power..

I was getting battery issues as well.. but then i removed and/or blocked some programs and now my u8230 is working just fine..

(please note that some of these bandwidth eager programs actually come with the operator ROM.. )

Thumbs up

It took me along time to realise what was killing my battery so quickly a could have a full charged battery wene i go to sleep and wake up in the morning wth a dead phone. Try turning off anything that whant to regularly update itself i.e. facebook, twitter, weather bug etc. etc. it makes a big improvement to your battery life and turn the brightness down past harf have a lil wonder froo your apps nd settings nd youll find loads of stuff that is updating itself.
