    Hey everyone, just picked up a Galaxy nexus last night.So far I am loving it. I went to bed and left the phone with 70% battery and when I woke up I have 25% left. Wow, not good until I saw that Exchange services was using 56% of my battery and did not let my phone sleep for 9 hours it was left idle. The strange thing is that I left the polling frequency as every 15 min and not push so this is a real suprise to see this. I have since changed it to manual, but my question is are other folks on this forum having the same issue? I love the exchange integration and hope that this is a bug that will be fixed which according to verizon rep this phone is due for 3 updates starting the end of january.

    Happy New Year!

    Thanks, however I would still like to use it though. By doing what you recommended won't that prevent me from using the email client on the phone?
