    Has anyone else noticed this recently. I have a Desire as do 2 other work colleagues, 1 also has a desire HD. We have all this week noticed a massive improvement in battery life. 1 guy spends 90 minutes getting to work in a morning and despite listening to music all the way and using the web as well was only down to 74% by the time he got to work. I'm an average user and previously had to charge every night (would be between 10% and 30% left) but on wednesday night was at 74% so didn't charge and it made it to bedtime on thursday with 23% left. The lightest user undocked his phone when he left work yesterday and it was still at 90% when he got to work this morning. All massive improvements and as far as we know we haven't had any system updates but there has been quite a few standard app updates this week. Has anyone else noticed this? Have google/htc slipped out an update that's finally sorted the battery life?

    Yes I am!! I thought maybe t-mo was working on expanding 3g to where I work (extreme outskirts of the KC suburbs). My phone always drains quickly while at work from toggling back and forth from 3g to edge. I always had to charge it from work to the gym, and sometimes even from the gym to home. Now suddenly one overnight charge lasts me the whole day!
