    I have turned of the haptic touch, however when I text the phone still vibrates. Since I am an avid texter this has to be killing my battery and can not find a way to turn this off.

    Any Suggestions?

    What exactly is haptic touch? I've never had a touch screen phone before so this will be my first one.

    is there any evidence that haptic feedback kills battery faster? has someone benchmarked the battery life using haptic off vs. on and seen a noticeable difference? it's nice to have a feeling of touch when inputting text. if the difference is something like 18 hours w/off vs 17.6 hours w/on I think it's safe to say it wouldn't matter much.....

    I highly doubt its anything amazing , maybe youll get 10% more battery life if you dont but dont quote me , i just dont see it cause much drain... unless your texting 1000 times a day lol

    I'm wondering the samething, it's not a real keyboard but the vibration sense does add a little bit to feeling.

    How do you turn off the vibrate when you're entering numbers to make a call? It doesn't vibrate when I type to send a text, nor when I hit any of the 4 buttons on the bottom. What am I missing? :)

    The pure fact that when you touch the screen the entire phone vibrates means your using up power. I haven't measured it, and I haven't seen an app that does, but I usually text or post on facebook or twitter and that vibrate is going a lot. Not to mention I feel like I'm getting shocked haha
