    I have had a Transform for about the last 7 months and have had to replace it 3 times. The battery life is terrible and the worst on any phone i have ever had. I use hardly any apps and always push my emails instead of having them update all the time. Any advice on how to save the battery life:mad:

    Welcome to Android Forums!

    When you say "terrible" exactly how long are we talking here? You're average smartphone with moderate use will need to be charged at least every one to two days.

    i have to plug it in at least twice a day and that is not right. There must be a app that is draining the juice but i have turned off all the ones that i think could be doing this. :mad:

    If you go to menu>settings>about phone>battery what does it show is the biggest user of juice? It should be the display. If it says cell standby, try turning off WiFi for a while and check back.

    You can also install Watchdog to see if any app has gone rogue.
