    On my EVO, my time without a signal is usually over 90%. I live in a good coverage area, but low bars inside of my house/office (both the same, where I am all day) I put on airplane mode for kicks, and in 12hrs, the battery dropped only 10%. So that being said, it seems to me as if there is a definite conclusion between signal strength and battery life. Any suggestions? and yes, I did the GSM-DCMA trick .

    Get an airave for your house and use wifi if you got it for data...I'm in the same boat and it helps immensely

    there was a trick in the Hero section.... to reduce that percentage.

    search to find it...

    let me see if i remember it...

    plug phone in charger....
    wake up phone...
    sleep phone
    wait 5 mins
    wake up phone
    unplug from charger
    sleep phone...
    wait 10 mins

    check percentage again

    lol.. something like that.. it really did help... LOL
