After having gone through 3 full charges yesterday, I looked at what was using the most battery - the DISPLAY... He's the gotcha - I barely touched the phone the entire day - the screen was lit maybe a GRAND TOTAL of 5 minutes. What WAS heavy yesterday was email traffic. I had my phone set to PUSH email from my corp exchange server all day. I decided today to experiment a little... I turned off PUSH mail and set it to manual - nothing else changed. After having unplugged at home at 8AM here it is 4:32 PM and I've got 40% battery left. Again, total time for the screen on is roughly 5 minutes. Now - that having been said - is it possible that the phone turns on the display without engaging the backlight when an email comes in? Why else would the display be taking up so much battery??? With me not having had the push email enabled the display is only taking up a small percentage of the battery usage - cell standby is taking up the most. Maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree, but it's a valid thought I believe!
