    Well the first 2-3 days I was having Horrible battery usage. Yes I was using 4g, gps (Trapster app is AWESOME) and data background, sync, etc etc etc

    now I turn off 4g, wifi, gps, etc like everyone else here but I still have a few more questions about battery usage.

    Currently my Android system is 57% usage
    my 2 biggest usages is that and Cell standby

    now when i go to setting>app>running services I have the following running:

    Calender (Obexservices) - wtf is this, do I need it on? I dont use calenders

    Calender (ConnectivityService) - same as above, do I need it or forcestop?

    Voicemail (CM_Service)

    HTC DM (HTC DM services) - ???

    HTC IQAgent - ???

    com.smithmicro.com (DMServiceApp) - ???

    Swype + Pocket Empire

    ---------------

    I have gone through every other settings and turned off most background data running stuff off, syncs off, roaming off, so what else can I do to tweak my baterry usage.

    I personally shut off everything in running services that I don't use, also, check your google talk settings and make sure it isn't running all of the time and killing your battery. I get over 24 hours on a charge so I hope this helps!

    %57 android sytem basically means your not putting it down long enough for it to go into standby and rest, when the screen goes off things are still running and the system starts going into rest mode slowly but if you wake it up every five minutes you'll have bad battery.

    I'm lost when you say

    "Remedy this by tapping GSM auto (prl), and changing it to CDMA auto (prl)."

    How do I tap GSM auto (prl)?

    What is "prl"?
