Alright, I am not sure how well the battery functioned pre-911 update, so I thought we could discuss battery drain rates post update. Now, I don't care about newer technology meaning lower battery rates. I am an electronics technician, and I am very aware of drain rates. But this seems to be pretty lousy. Battery Info: 3.7VDC 1150mAh Unfortunately, I haven't found an app for a stock phone that'll let me modify the boot applications, so I use Advanced Task Killer to kill off all apps except for messaging and alarm. I have forced 2g (Edge) usage only, turned off ALL GPS support (both via GPS and triangulation), turned off background data, and killed every app once done running. Now, if I go through an entire day on this, using only SMS messaging on vibrate mode, 14 hours of usage uses up 52% of the battery. Now, even though I have turned off background data usage, my Edge data connection never closes. It is always present at the top. This may cause a slightly faster drain. However, I have a feeling that some background app is causing this drain. Can anybody recommend a good task manager to view resource usage?
