It seems that no matter what people do, they still get poor battery life. Is it possible that a phone that is constantly searching for service would drain its battery quickly? I live in two locations: home and school. When I'm at home, I get pretty solid service from Verizon, and I also get good battery life. It lasted me around 24 to 36 hours there, which is great. When I go to school, it seems as if the service is poor. The phone is constantly searching for service. I, in turn, get fairly bad battery life. Around 12 hours. Not so good. Could this be the source of people getting varied battery life? Would constantly searching for service/3G drain a battery fast?
