  1. I usually try to pitch in and help if I can but I need help. Something is happening with my phone. I got ky auto sync and background data usage turned off, and I kill my apps before going to bed. I had full charge before bed and woke up to 32% battery left. Is there anything I can do to cure this? I even turn the web off before bed.

    What is your awake time percentage? Settings--> about phone--> status
     
  3. It used to range 25%-30% but now it is 76%

    Something is running that is keeping your phone awake. Have you downloaded any new apps recently?
     
  5. Yes, a weather app, but I deleted it thinking that may have been the problem

    One way to test to see if you solved the problem is to turn off your phone, then turn it back on. Put it to sleep for 5 minutes or so. Then wake it up and check your awake time. If it's 100% (or extremely high), you haven't fixed the problem. If it's back down under 20%, problem solved.

    I have had both the Weatherbug & Weather Channel apps. Weatherbug kept my phone awake, however, the most recent update should have fixed that.

    I currently use the Weather Channel app and even have it follow my location without any problems. I do not allow the weather apps to use GPS, however.
     
  7. I hope the update fixes this. My wife uses her droid all the time and for business at work and she still has 40% of her battery left. She took my eris one day and said she likes sense but she fully charged and drained it 2 times in a 8 hour work period.
     
  8. Ok. Thanks. Will try it.

    Wow. That definitely would not be acceptable. Does your wife get a strong signal on the Eris at work?

    I've taken mine with me to work (in a school) and I get at best, 1 bar. My phone is dead in about 4 hours. If I have 3-4 bars (like at home) I can go almost two days with 3g on.
     
  10. Yes she gets full signal
     
  11. We live in the country but signal is not bad at all
