    has anyone tried turning "background data" off?

    turned it off and it saves a lot of battery. my battery lasts as much as 40% more now . maybe its just me but i think it makes a lot of difference.

    btw its in setting under account & sync

    Turning that off will cripple your ability to do most things with your phone..

    If I turned off 3g, didn't take calls, and never turned on the screen I think I could go a week.

    Milestone.
    When supposed OFF, The omap may be fully OFF (very few power supply, sufficient to rapidly goes back to life) which will really save battery life. On the droid it efficient, not on the milestone which has a different modem.


    Some figures that may be interresting if you fin that when doing aplication, batteries drops very quick...
    A cortexa8 that do a while(toto) at about 550~600 is about 100mAmps. If it's drhystoning (70% cache), it's more about 300mAmps... You battery is 1400mAh... and these consumption are only for the cortex, it's far from being the only contributor. Graphics and memory in particular are good ones .

    If you got a bad voltage number (< 4000mV), you may get a bad battery.
    I haven't trained my battery but I'm at 4100, usually....
    That means your battery is OK. You may try to check where your battery power is going using "spare parts" (under partial wake usage). I believe a full charge can let you browse internet for more than 4 hours.
    So the voltage shows if your battery is okay or not? I have the BatteryLife widget and I'm not sure how accurate it is, but I dont tihnk I've ever seen my voltage >4000 mV. Right now its at 3796 mV. Does that mean I have a bad battery? I do tend to get horrible battery life also.

    Wow! This was a first for me. I unplugged my phone at 5 a.m. and at 3:19 a.m., I still have 40% battery life. Bought my Droid on release day. I usually unplug about 5-530 a.m.. however, I usually have to plug back up about 630 in the evening. I didn't do anymore or any less than I usually do on my phone. Just thought I'd share my battery life story.

    I have had an issue with the battery in the last two days only. All of a sudden it was like to phone went to hell! Lagging screen, force closes for everything, battery sucked dry in three hours from a full charge. I looked at the battery usage and it was the Android system that was sucking it dry at 42%. I started nocking off apps until I found the culprit!! Antivirus app was killing my phone!! Anyone know if these phones really need an antivirus or had any issues with these kind of apps??

    I would say you don't really need an antivirus. Each app runs as its own user and none of them have root permissions. I suppose it's at least remotely possible there's a virus or worm out there for Android, but it's unlikely.

    E-Mail push on Droid Eris

    Hello, I am new to Android phones. I just got an Eris & I am able to receive e-mail if I manually "refresh" it. But how do I set it to refresh automatically. I have my setting to refresh every 15 minutes but it does not do it. Can anyone please help me????

    Thank You,
