Hello, I am a "Newbie", will this affect anything else on the phone? I have an Eris. Can you please tell me how to get to this setting?
Great Topic buddy, also to add to that WIFI is a major killer as well. I notice when I shut off my wifi and GPS location my phone is a complete power house and it lasts all day. Wifi is a major battery killer no need to have it on if your just chilling with the family or running errands. But great suggestions. ALSO DROID IS THE BEST PHONE IN THE WHOLE WORLD.............UNTIL DROID 2 COMES OUT LOL
Leave em all on. I think anyone who tries to micro manage these settings is wasting time....
The GPS only gets used when an app needs it.
Wi-Fi takes WAY less energy than your phone attempting a constant connection to a far tower.
Bluetooth only activates when you are near your car.
I leave them all on.
And I am very leary of connecting to any public access points where I don't know the owner of that AP it leaves you open for a man in the middle type attack unless you are using an encrypted tunnel to a proxy.
But then again my wife says that I am just paranoid about these types of things.
the batteries when "new" , taking home from the store were at around 50% btw.
does this mean that we should have our batteries replaced since they didn't inform us to charge them fully immediately?
the batt's seems to last about the same as my work iphone 3gs except that when my Droid gets down to 20%, it drains very quickly.
Since you're a newb to the forum I'll be nice and suggest next time please read the prior 12 pages before you ask a question like this.
The answer you would have found about 12 times would be that you cannot hurt a li-ion battery by not charging it, undercharging it, overcharging it, or pooping on it.
Don't worry about it. Your battery is fine. By the way I suggest a dry poop otherwise you may get some electrical problems...
