    ok, so i got my captivate on July 30th. i think its totally died like 3 or 4 times now but it still seems to die very quickly. i have the adv app killer on there, i turn off bluetooth when not in use, brightness is as low as it will go, no haptic feedback, gps off and yet i still know that by the time i get home unless i charge it in the car, i won't be able to use my phone after work. so, i'd like your guys thoughts on whether it would be worth it to take back to the at&t store and swap it out for a new one? thanks for your thoughts!

    Could be live wallpaper. Could be any of countless background apps you have running.

    Kind of hard to say. But "App Killers" aren't a panacea and can cause more problems than good. 99% of people who install them just do so because they read that everyone else uses them, and actually have no idea how they should (and shouldn't) be used.

    I swapped out my phone and went from about 4 hours with regular use to over 18 hours.
