    I've had the MTS for about 2 months now, and I'm getting used to it. I think it's a great phone and a good OS. But I do have a few questions:

    How can I improve my battery life? I leave it on charge overnight, and it's always almost dead by the time i get home. I get a decent number of calls and texts, but not much more than i did with my Galaxy. I have all the extras turned off unless i use them (wifi, bluetooth, gps, etc.) I always lock the screen when I'm not using it.

    Any ideas?

    Also, I've noticed that the phone lags at random times. I only notice it when I'm playing Angry Birds, and when I look to see what else is running, (via the notification tas) I don't see anything. Any idea what is causing the slowdown?

    Sorry for the newbie questions. . . .but I see the potential here!

    Thanks,

    B.

    Things I have done to improve battery life:

    1. Turn off T-mobile sync and only sync my contacts to Google.
    2. Turn off syncs for apps I don't use (News & Stocks) and adjust any other sync settings (Settings>Accounts & sync)
    3. Turn off wifi and bluetooth and only turn them on when needed. (Can be easily turned on and off with the power control widget)
    4. Turn off always-on data connections. (Settings>Wireless & networks>Mobile networks>Enable always-on mobile data)

    I've tried most of those, but I'll run through them again.

    How long should the battery last? Mostly pholne calls, less than 5 mins on the internet daily, and about 25-30 text messages.

    I just think it should last longer than 7 hours without requiring charging.

    Thanks,
