    I removed the People widget. From the main screen, scroll right. Hold down the People widget and remove it.

    I was getting 10 hours daily off a full charge. Today I got up to 14. Normally I lose 10% per hour. In the morning, I was losing 5%. I was hoping to double my 10 hours and get to 20 but I did make it to 14.

    I was also losing 15-20% in the first hour battery drain. After removing the people widget, I only lost 3%!

    Previously, I tried everything. Turned off GPS, formatted SD card, hard reset, changed from GSM to CDMA, charging while the phone was off/on repeatedly.

    I have hardware version 003.

    But you realize why I am giving you a bit of a hard time (besides for starting the 473rd battery thread)

    Widgets, by their very nature, are battery hogs. Trying to get better battery life?? FIRST delete Widgets. ;-)

    The contacts thing thing that you're referring to can't possibly have much to do with the battery... I mean all it does it hold your favorites in a scrollable window. It's not as if it's constantly syncing online or anything.

    There's a ## code that you have to enter (Or just download "NETWORK" from the market) and then you change the Preferred network type from GSM Auto to CDMA Auto PRL. This should help with battery life (it has for me) and signal strength.
