I've had my incredible for over a year now, and after adding the extended battery, I can easily go from morning to bedtime without recharging if I only have moderate usage. I was at home all weekend and was using my WiFi, but yesterday I finally fired up my 3g when I left for work. I didn't do anything new to my phone (no new apps), so I was expecting the same performance.
About 10am, my phone announced that it was at 15% battery life, so I popped it onto the charger. I was shocked that the battery was about dead, so I checked my settings to make sure that nothing had changed. I did notice that my 3g was continuously running. I began to think that the continuous 3g usage was what was causing the fast battery drain.
So....here are the things that I have tried since yesterday.
1) turned phone off and back on. No change.
2) turned phone off, removed battery for 5 minutes, and turned back on. No change.
3) Complete factory reset. No change.
4) Swapped extended life battery for oem battery. No change.
Those are the only details that I can remember. Any ideas?
