Hello all! I'm a newly registered user, and frequent lurker. I hate to make my first post a cry for help but I'm beyond confused. I spent the past 4 hours reading and searching for answers but I can not find the answers I'm looking for. I've had my Evo since December 2010 (was using Samsung Moment prior to). It has been a wonderful phone until recently. Problem #1 is battery life. My phone has been off the wall charger for 4 hours and my battery is at about 40%. I have sent five text messages, viewed two emails, and made three phone calls totaling between 10-15 minutes. My 4G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth are turned OFF. I dont run any fancy or crazy apps. I would be willing to bet I have only downloaded 10-15 apps on top of what comes factory installed. My battery used to last 9-10 hours without needing a charge. Now I need to almost keep it plugged in to make it last through the day. Problem #2- I no longer hear a tone when I dial phone numbers or use the key pad. I can adjust every other sound or tone but I cant figure that one out. Problem #3- I downloaded ATK thinking it would help to trim some fat off my battery consumption. I havent noticed any difference in battery life. I have noticed that if I kill everything that is shown to be running, within 2 minutes, those apps are running again. Is this normal? Could it be part of a deeper problem? My cellphone is a key component in helping me run my business. I work from the seat of my truck. I cant afford to be without a phone. My only saving grace is the rooted Samsung Moment I use to tether my laptop. I would GREATLY appreciate any and all help. Thanks in advance! This place is an Android heaven!
