Texting draining the battery more than it should?

    I got my Captivate about a week ago and some far I am liking it a lot. However, I thought I was having some battery issues, as my phone is draining faster than my brother's iPhone.

    Using one of the battery status widgets, I've noticed that my batter drops about 1 percent for every text that send and receive (send one text+receive one text = 1% drain) meaning that I'd only be able to send about 100 texts in a day on a full charge. Most days I don't reach that but there are some days which are pretty text heavy. Is this a normal rate at which the battery should be draining for doing something like that? I am using Juicedefender and Advanced Task Killer to monitor what is going on, and the only widget I have running is Fancy Widget.

    First things first.

    Have you completely power cycled your battery 3-4 times?

    I am in the process of doing that. Last night was the first night I used it enough to drain it down all the way until it shut off. I let it charge overnight without turning it on. I plan on doing the same thing tonight.
