Hi all, I'm new here and a new Eris owner ... had it now for about a week and love it so far. I've read through several of the threads here about the battery and best ways to conserve, and I've tried to apply them (and I appreciate the info I've been able to find here). I'm conditioning the battery now (fully drained/charged it a few times), have set the brightness down lower, turned off bluetooth & wifi, set email checking to 2 hrs rather than 15 minutes. My question is about the effect on the battery of using facebook and peep/twitter as apps running on their own home screen. I have each of these two on their own screen so I can see updates ... but is this more draining on the battery than instead just having the apps as icons and then opening them up (meaning does this mean they are open all the time and draining battery)? Also, I have 3 email accounts setup but set to check every 2 hrs. Would this be more draining than just 1 email that checks every 30 minutes? In my first few full battery cycles, I've had between 35-45 hrs of charge with medium amount of use (more browser and games than calls). Thanks for any input, this form is great, glad to have found it!
