    Here's what I did to drain the battery:
    Pokemon emerald on that GBA emulator in a place with lightning (so the screen was constantly flashing completely white) at 8x speed. :p

    Didn't take long at all to get it to drain.

    Either run a live background image or download the Usteam apps and broadcast something using 3g.

    Run some 3D games; if they have any network play use it (HR Battle 3D), leave navigation on, stream some music, load some pics in slide show.

    And how long have u been trying? That might be what everyone wants to know......lol

    Yep. +1

    YouTube is one of the most effective things I use to drain mine... I'm at 9% now and waiting to do a full discharge, so I'm heading there now! ;)

    Well, that'll always happen if you don't bump charge. It won't get to 89% for a long time.

    If you have the phone plugged in, the battery won't drain (very fast at least). :p

    Wow, what a clueless thread.

    First off, 90% doesn't constitute a drained battery.

    And 50% after one text message? Oh BS. Why aren't you sending your obviously defective phone back?

    I call BS on this whole thread. The Incredible uses battery exactly like I would expect any smartphone of its capability to do. No, actually, it performs better than I expected, especially after hearing all the whining from people who believe in nonsense like "bump charging" and think that 60% after a few hours of intensive usage is a problem.

    Post some actual evidence of unreasonable battery drain or just quit whining about things you don't understand.

    Being off topic is fun!
    I'm @ NAU too, but I'm not living in the trees at the moment.

    I guess I'm missing the point here, why is everyone attempting to drain their battery on purpose? I thought it was pretty well known by now that a full drain/full charge on these batteries doesn't do anything to improve the overall life.
