    After updating my Hero to 2.1 I have noticed that the battery drains much quicker now even after I've done all recommended tweaks (switching off Always On, reducing frequency of updates etc.). Has anyone also experienced the same problem. Some people mentioned that battery life of their phones improved after the update.

    Try the procedure outlined here. It made a big difference to my own perceived usage.

    rainmane somewhere I saw something like *#*#4636#*#* to press in the dialer app, dont call. It will open a menu and there phone info I guess and choose something with GSM auto etc I think . That helped me. It was on WCDMA preferred before by me. Should be some better guide somewhere.

    See post #1 in this thread. Just be very careful not to alter any other settings unless you know what you're doing!
