    70% drain in two hours? That's just crazy, even for a 2.1 ROM. I haven't had battery drain like that at all.

    Have you tried wiping your battery statistics?

    Let the battery discharge completely then boot into Recovery > Wipe > Wipe battery stats. Then reboot, and put it on charge until it's reached 100%

    I'm using a 2.1 ROM, phone comes off charge about 07:30ish and by 19:30ish I've usually got about 50% remaining. Granted from 50% it then goes down rather quickly.

    People need to factor use into battery life, when i first got my Hero it drained quickly because I was playing with it, I dont think this ROM is any worse in my experience, I can geta full day of light to moderate use from 5.5

    Not sure if anyone else tried this and changed the settings to those stated.
    I did, and I noticed I hadn't got any picture mails again. I tried sending one to myself but no joy. I reverted back to WCDMA preferred, and 6 pictures came through within minutes.
    I'm on Orange, so I presume GSM auto (PRL) doesn't work with that.
    Anyone else find that on Orange?

    I've currently got my hero set to GSM auto (PRL) and can send/receive pic msgs. I'm on three. and have used mmszap.

    MmsZap 2.0 - MMS settings changer for leaked Eris 2.1 based roms - HTCPedia.com forums

    Yes, I used MMSzap too. All the settings are correct, just won't have it on gsm auto (prl) on Orange for some reason. that's why I wondered if it was just me having that problem.

    From what I've deducted in my testing, changing the options in the phone info menu (*#*#INFO#*#*) will effect you as such...

    WCDMA preferred - Will automatically switch between G/E/3G/H depending on the best signal and uses the most battery.

    WCDMA Only - Locks you in HSDPA

    GSM auto (PRL) - Will automatically switch you between G/E/3G/H based on the PRL list on your phone (thus using less battery than WCDMA preferred which is based on monitoring signals). For this to be affective, make sure your PRL list is up-to-date in Settings > About > System Update > Update PRLs. This might not work for all carriers, in which case you'll have to use WCDMA preferred if you want to switch between all 4.

    GSM only - Locks you in G/E and uses the least battery.

    Yea, the phone app force closes, and you'll notice you lose reception for a few moments. I think that is necessary to make the update.
