    After searching through numerous posts about bad battery life, I still am having issues.

    So far, I have:
    -Lowered the brightness all the way
    -Taken the Sync off
    -Turned off GPS/WiFi/Bluetooth
    -Let battery drain all the way down and then charge it.

    Still, however, my battery is draining very quickly with moderate use. In fact, when it is in standby and locked (screen off, no activity), it still drains at an incredible rate.

    Is my battery fried?

    yeah, i browse the internet all day on 3G, play sega genesis and gameboy, download apps, text, make calls, and maybe by the end of the day it MIGHT down to about 20%, if your not getting stellar battery life then i would take it back, mine is sooo good, way better than any other phone i've had when doing things like internet and games

    You might want to get the app task killer, and see what is eating the battery up.

    i do have task killer and kill my apps often, also i check my battery usage and it says display takes up WAY more than half of the drainage which isnt surprising but its just surprising HOW low it gets

    I would have to say, bring the phone back and see if that takes care of the problem. I can go all day on a full charge, but do have to kill apps throughout the day to get that.
