Apparently, this is a big issue with this phone and it's a real shame because it's pretty much perfect in every other aspect I have seen. I have done every tip and tweak out there. All background syncing is off except for my email which is the only thing I like to have as it comes in. I take off all things when not in use and make sure all the radios not in use are off. I have formatted the Sd card and even set my prl to cdma auto (it was on gsm) but this did not help. I don't know what else to do. I love the phone but what good is it if its dying the second I unplug it from the charger? I barely used the phone today while at work and by 5pm my phone is in the low 60% range. 40% battery gone just in idle. Imagine if I actually use the phone?? Is this normal battery consumption for this phone? On my Iphone I could txt, browse the net and email a full work day before needing a charge. I could accept similar results but I think this phone would die in just a couple of hours of the same type of use. Any suggestions?
