    I just want to say that I recently did a hard reset and reinstalled 2.1. Before this, my battery wasn't lasting but about 8 hrs on a charge...but now with the reinstall of 2.1 and running Task Manager in the background with auto kill on...my battery life is awesome! I unplugged the charger today at noon and it is still showing a 70% charge ten hours later. I don't know if this will help anyone but my phone also seems faster without the lag and the only thing I have done different is what I mentioned above. You might give it a try and see if it helps and let me know if your battery life is better as well as the lag.

    Hmmm, see, when I stopped using a task manager my battery life got better. Android really has no need for task managers unless you have a rogue app that won't "sleep."

    I'd suggest using Spare Parts to see what was causing the phone to stay awake.

    I've contemplated using a task manager but wasn't sure if it would really be useful or not in my situation. I don't have a lot of apps downloaded. I'm going to give this Spare Parts a try to see if a task manager may be useful for me.

    +1 for this. Once I stopped using the task manager, battery life got way better. After I went to 2.1 I didn't even re-install my Task Killer. There really is just no need for it, even if the Sprint rep tells you otherwise. ;)

    If we currently have a task killer installed, will a simple uninstall take care of this or is a reboot of the phone necessary? Thanks!

    Just an un-install should be OK, but a reboot definitely is not going to hurt it.
