    Howdy all!!

    I've had my Photon since the beginning of August. Aside from the initial problem of the phone going to mute when receiving a call, I've had no problems with it. Battery life has been extremely awesome, lasting all day on a single charge. So about two weeks ago I downloaded Words with Friends and after my battery went to crap! By noon my phone was down to 40% charge. It started acting like the EVO 3G that was replaced by this phone. So I unistalled the app and now my battery is crap. By 3:00 pm I'm having to connect the charger. Any suggestions?

    That could very well be the case. I noticed that when I have open games in Words with friends that it syncs frequently at ~30 minutes. SO that fact alone will diminish battery life (opening a data connection).

    Also make sure that all windows are closed from the browser menu. I've forgotten to close all mine at times and open it up with battery level @ 80% open up windows n 3-4 windows are open....battery level drops to 40%it that quick.

    My 2 cents. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the tips. One thing I ran across today on the forums was that after the October Photon update, a lot of people are experiencing poor battery performance. This might very well be the case for me because I installed WWF around the same time the update rolled out. I'm not going to reinstall the app until more information comes out regarding this update, and hopefully a fix. Thanks again....
