    Nope.
    There are many threads with tips on conserving battery. One i have found is turning off 3G when not needed. Although i realize this is not a popular option for many.

    Or, go to:
    Seidio.com

    Get the 1750ma battery.

    In fact you can.

    You root the phone first, and then follow the reversion instructions in the http://androidforums.com/all-things...ot-thread-apps-roms-updated-05-06-2010-a.html thread

    For someone that has never rooted, this could be a daunting process.

    I doubt his battery problem has anything to do with 2.1 per se (so long as the update went through correctly - more likely it is an app that doesn't behave well under 2.1).

    If you are on OTA 2.1 it is VERY possible and VERY easy to go back down to 1.5. no-idea, PM me if you need help. search the forum this has been covered.

    I personally think my phone runs HORRIBLE with 2.1 yes I've tried reset, yes i've tried it without any apps, theres so many issues, 1.5 is much more stable. it takes about 10 minutes to complete and it's easy to downgrade to 1.5 than to go 1.5 to OTA 2.1 personally.

    And it also does not require root.

    The instructions are here.

    Just rolled back my wife's phone to 1.5 from the ota because of the phone going silent. Now no more silent issues and the process was very easy.

    Yea just root your phone and then flash back to 1.5 and disable the OTA notifications so when you are 1.5 if doesn't keep bugging you to upgrade.
    Easy fix just look for how to root your phone and then look for how to go back to stock.

    Running OTA 2.1, you do NOT need to root, to be able to flash back to 1.5.. Are you saying this because if you are on 2.1 OTA, and then root, then flash back to 1.5 would you still be rooted..? I have no experience with rooting, but I do know that running 2.1 OTA, you do not need to root to re-vert back to 1.5.

    I told him to root because if he doesn't and just flashes back to 1.5 he will keep getting the OTA notification like every 15mins which can get annoying fast.
    If he roots he can disable the OTA and won't get bugged by OTA notification.

    I'd really like to know were you are getting your information, because I know it isn't from first hand experience. It really bugs me that you have no idea what you are talking about and giving out false crappy information. To tell someone to root there phone simply because of an OTA notification is ridiculous, rooting is something that can takes weeks to month learning the information before jumping into something that can brick your phone. No-idea don't listen to this obvious noob he has no idea what he is talking about. I have been back on 1.5 for awhile, and I can tell you from FIRST HAND experience that the ONLY time you will get an OTA notification for 2.1 is whenever you re-boot the phone. End of story. It isn't annoying at all. to me it is no different than having to apply the airplane trick to 2.1, actually this is easier.

    On an UN-Rooted 1.5 phone you can use PDAnet to use your 3G internet on your laptop.

    Same here only notifications for OTA upgrade on 1.5 when re-booting the phone.. Hardly annoying at all.

    First and final warning.... please keep threads on-topic, especially those asking specific questions, and cut out the name-calling, gratuitous swearing and other playground antics.

    Thanks for your co-operation.
