Battery Life Tip
My battery was dying so fast it was insane. Then I started to do some research. The default refresh time for the built in email app is 5 minutes. I have 4 email accounts setup. I changed the email refresh times to a more conservative 1 hour since most my emails are not time critical. Since then my battery is holding out much much better.
Go into the email app
press the menu button
press on send & receive
press on set download frequency
change this to something more reasonable.
you will need to repeat this step from each of your email accounts
go to the main mail list in each account and follow the steps.
I'm sure there are similar settings for most the widgets/apps that update regularly.
Bless you for posting this. It never would have occurred to me.

thanks for the info...i'll give it a shot tomorrow and see if I can make til after lunch before I need a quick charge
Thanks for the tip Seth. I adjusted two less-active email accounts and saw a significant change. Once email account was changed to daily downloads. I've been averaging 100% battery usage from 8-5pm. Today, 8-5pm, i had a little more than 50% of juice left. I did talk 30 less minutes today, but I doubt that would drop have drained my battery.
How did you do that? I tried and it won't let me uninstall. (DInc).

I don't know if you can inactivate it without a reset. The reset is a pain, but what a difference in battery life so it was worth it. Good luck.

I ordered a coupe of extra batteries, hopefully that does it.
Thanks for your reply!
