Well, I am running the 2.1 V3 and I still have battery issues. I have had the phone since December, I think I might wait to complain to HTC/Verizon until I install the official 2.1, but this is annoying. The battery is so inconsistent, some days by lunch time its half way gone, on little use, other days its a 3/4 gone by 2:00 with little use. I charge my phone while its off all night, and unplug right before I leave for school. I make 1 phone call during the morning, usually about the same time every day and some days right after the phone call, im already down to 3/4 of battery. I check the phone occasionally for texts and email and maybe for some news. And by lunch time its down half way, and by the time im in my car on my way home I have 1/4 of battery left. **I have all animations turned off, the brightness is set almost to the lowest it can go. I do have location turned on, but it gets it through the mobile network and I occasionally use Advanced Task Killer** My battery use throughout the day looks like: Cell Standby about 70%...Phone Idle 24%...Android System 7%...Display 2% Can anybody seem to guide me in the right direction? Also, what happened to the % of Awake Time, now it just shows the time?
