    I have read and learned about this phone (stock, nonrooted, with stock 1500 Batt). I am running Juice defender (purchased pro level, and app killer). After reading a lot on this and other sites I found out that the running services DRM is the one to shut down under the application tab then into running services. I have used the phone for 13 hrs yesterday and now for all of today (so far 9hrs) and have 3/4 battery full. I have been on web (wifi stays on) and taken several calls yesterday and today. JD is taking some credit but the DRM shut down really helped with 2.1 OS. I hope this helps others and thanks for this forum...

    Did you shut down both DRM Protected content storage AND DRMContentLauncher?

    Digital rights management (DRM) is a generic term for access control technologies that can be used by hardware manufacturers, publishers, copyright holders and individuals to impose limitations on the usage of digital content and devices. ...

    Yes, it has to be toggled off with each reboot of the device, if so desired. ;)

    I also noticed that in addition to DRM, there is a samsung media search-type service that is running as well. I shut that off as well.

    Juice defender messed up my phone. So confusing I uninstalled it. APP killer is a battery killer itself. If I were you, I would delete the program.

    Thanks for the tip. I did what you said after my phone had a full charge at 5pm yesterday. I've now been unplugged for 21hr and 22 min and still at 45% power. This is with about 15 texts, 4 phone calls (36 minutes total), 22 minutes browsing, 10 hrs wi-fi use, and auto brightness. I never really tracked exact before, but I know that's a huge improvement. Oh yeah, my gps has been on the whole time too. This is all 3g, as I don't have 4g. Thanks again!

    I'm curious as to why this works for some and not for others. it must have something to do with different phone builds? ?

    Agree and happy for you. I look forward to Froyo update. I will toggle off juice defender in the next few days and app killer as one person suggested.

    Good question. Don't want to muck things up without knowing what the hell it does first. Anyone?
