Im afraid my magic has worn off :(! My Ally was untouched by any of the issues for a good 2 weeks, but by the 3rd week I was unfortunately hit by the dreaded signal bug. See, there is a bug that alot of the Allys have that makes it so that your Ally has to do ALOT more work to find a cell tower signal. Check in your battery usage and click on "Cell Stand By"..now look for "Time without a signal". My ally usually says around 98%. It shouldnt be that high. Whenever youre searching for a signal like that, it takes alot alot of battery out of your phone. Im sorry I cant be much of assistance. Now my Ally gets around 14-16 hours at best. It used to get well over 24 hours! So I got a Moto Droid instead.
