    Now that I got my phone to work faster, (thanks to jazziette, prodigy, and others) now I have a LEETLE problem.

    I am having a battery burn problem, because my phone gets low power after only a few hours. I use PDAnet, (temporarily) but I turned that off.
    I turn off Wifi when I am not using it, I turned off bluetooth, I turned off nearly everything I can think of that might be running the battery so low, and I leave the phone alone for a few hours and it still runs out of power.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    thanks!
    :)

    Maps and GPS? I noticed that takes up a lot.

    I think there is something in the settings that will tell you what is running and how much of your battery its taking up.

    Settings-About Phone-Battery Use
    I think this for what is currently running.
    At least that is for my cricket Huawei Ascend.

    Turning off background data helps a lot if you don't need constant e mail, facebook or twitter updates. You can just sync it manually if you need to check e mail, etc.

    what he said, plus if your not using the market turn data background off, and yes gps will eat your battery and most battery apps will also.

    Get the app WI-FI STATUS from the ANDROID MARKET.WI-FI STATUS alerts you via notification bar if WI-FI is trying to connect.I've found this app to be useful on more than several occasions when WI-FI was spontaneously turning itself on & searching for a connection,even when one was not available.This app is very small in size (10 kb) & only consumes resources (battery) when WI-FI is initially turned on.A VERY USEFUL tool for any ANDROID PHONE.For more information on this app,see the description in the ANDROID MARKET or search for the article write-up in PHANDROID NEWS.
