    Hi everyone,
    I bought my first android phone-infuse and i am very very new to using android. I got two issues.
    1. From the day 1 my infuse battery is draining like anything. i charged the battery before sleep and in the morning it's showing red battery(low).i didn't do anything on that.(ofcourse i am sleeping so can't :)) .i read some solutions saying switch off the widgetlocker or something but i don't have that either. So, where is the wrong. Is it like this or is there a way?
    Is it the infuse issue or any apps keep on running in the back? or what should i do?

    2. i bought minimun 15 /month dataplan and i hardly use it and i got a message from at&t that my data plan is 65% used. I compared with my friend's iphone and in 4hrs, with same use, iphone shows 10/20 mb data use and infuse shows 200mb data use. i don't know why it happens?
    can you please give me some suggestions regarding both.

    Thanks you in advance.

    Some things to look at:

    - Turn off "BOTH" GPS/Maps
    - Turn off Wifi.
    - If you use Facebook you can adjust settings so it auto updates always, 1hr, 4hr, or never. I chose every 4hrs or if I go to the Facebook tab I can manually update it on the screen.
    - My screen goes into sleep mode after 2 minutes of non use.
    - I do not use any moving screen savers...Unsure how battery that will drain.

    No real battery issues here to complain about.

    Thank you all..

    Now i am ok with the battery because i switched off everything even wifi and data plan and every app...to test...and now the battery lasts for almost 1 full day..

    But what about the data plan issue i talked about?
    why my data plan is being used vigourously? and it's almost 65% used with in a week of purchase? any suggestions on that? i don't have any special apps...so what do you think which apps or whatever are using my data plan and how to stop this and use the app at the same time?

    I have the 200 MB plan and have never had any issues. I'm around wifi most of the time, though.

    If you don't want your 3G/4G being used, you can toggle it on/off by holding the power button, then selecting Data network mode. Hope that helps.
