    I'm the proud owner of a Samsung Captivate. After 3 BB's and a god-awful iphone I decided to give Android a try. Love this phone and haven't put it down since I got it. Just got my Otterbox Commuter case in the mail today. :D I do have a couple of issues with the phone itself one being the battery life. This phone is def a show-stopper as I've had people stop and ask me what kind of phone I have. The forums have been so much help and I look forward to learning more.

    Welcome to the forums glad to have you here. There are things you can do to improve battery life but require root. IMO I would take time to really get used to the phone before tweaking on it but like I said just IMO

    Welcome, fellow Marylander. I suggest looking into an extra battery for now. You can probably find cheap knockoff ones for cheap and they can do the trick.

    I got one for 12 dollars and its as good as the one that came in the phone. Otherwise the best option is actually rooting and using something like setCPU, which I personally haven't done.

    Its a fact battery life can be simply horrible, but the option to carry extra cheap batteries, although not be ideal, is an easy patch.

    Thanks all for the responses. Yes I'm still in the learning phase. I'm so used to the RIM world I have to adjust to the new lingo around these parts. I will look for the extra battery asap but save the rooting for down the road.
