I thought the newest version of firmware for the Hero out there is v1.5.6.x.x.x, but when I try to update OTA it tells me that I'm running the most recent version and I'm on v 1.5.0. Any ideas of how to correct?

I just got the phone a couple of days ago but I would say that I could definately use better battery time as I'm only making it about 12 hours per charge with light use. I'm hoping that I do not have the newest firmware and a newer version will correct...or not?
Menu>Settings>About phone. Scroll down to Software version. It should read 1.56.651.2 after installing the recent OTA update.
