Root I thought this battery life was pretty good.

    UBER BAMF Gingerbread + Sedio 3200mah battery.

    That is 5.5 hours on the phone, + fairly heavy use of the data. Yesterday I had about the same phone time + about 2 hours of streaming radio while on the road not plugged in, I still did not put it on the charger until 10pm. The Sedio has saved me in using this as a work phone.

    Swapping to the Gingerbread ROM also allowed it to finally work with the UConnect in my company truck. I have never got Froyo to work with UConnect or Sync smoothly with the Eris or the Thunderbolt, but GB has every time.

    It's great to hear you are glad you made the jump to GB. Yeah the behind the scenes stuff with GB has made quite a difference. If you were to try an AOSP rom I can't imagine the battery life you would be getting.

    I don't know if they were AOSP roms or not, but I. ran some pretty bare bones ROMS on my Eris and liked them a lot, and gave amazing battery life with a stock battery. I know the TBolt would do well with them. I don't mind Sense though when the bloat is removed. The 3.0 version has been really nice. compared to older versions. I like the animations and stuff, even at the cost of the battery life. I also leave EVERYTHING on ALL the time just because I am in and out of my truck all day, I don't want to be switching it all the time. It is bad enough I am constantly switching between calling with GV and calling with my normal number.

    I just don't like sense. I use SPB shell for my launcher and widget locker for my lock screen that pretty much renders sense pointless.

    I get that on the stock battery with ShiftS3ns3.. with *moderate* usage, I use 2.5% or so per hour. At the end of the day, I went over 10 hours yesterday off charge and only used 44% (56% remaining).. That was fairly heavy usage, but most data over wifi

    I miss the sense dialer. I would always use the dial pad as a t9 method to calling someone :(
