    Battery Life

    I charged my phone last night before I went to bed so it was at 100%. I unplugged it before I went to bed with a fulk battery and woke up this morning and it was at 20%. Does anyone have any suggestions to improve my battery life? Is there a way to disable the internet completely so the phone is not searching anything?

    Make sure bluetooth and WiFi are off when not in use. Also, get taskkiller. It will list all running apps and you can one-click to close them out.

    i went to bed at 80% and woke up at 60%.. not as bad as your experience, but i don't know why the battery is leaking so much.

    bluetooth and wifi off.

    there's a power saving app out there, I downloaded it and noticed better battery life since instaling it.

    My question is, what happened to all the raves about how great the battery life was on it?

    I think there might be in your case something running in the background that is sucking up alot of juice, try using advanced app killer, or something close to it, leaving the base applications open i don't think will hurt too much, but most likely the apps you've downloaded you might want to keep off though.
    Resistance is futile.

    Same thing happened to me. Phone was at 100% when I went to bed last night and when I got up this morning it was totally dead. It is now fully charged, and I installed task killer, but not really sure which tasks I should keep going and which I should kill.

    you really could kill all... if gps stops working when you wake ur phone up, just re-enable or restart your phone

    The apps that i keep open are the email apps, messaging app, my alarm clock, calendar, and my battery widget. The other apps so far that i've installed don't need to be running all the time.
