I completely cleaned out the phone by formatting the SD card and then formatting the phone itself.
Since yesterday morning (where I let it charge over night), I have used roughly 50% of the battery power. I've used it mostly for email, little web surfing, played a game for a few minutes or so. So it appears to be better this go-round than the initial one. maybe tha twas due to the software upgrade? I don't know. But I am no longer using ATK.
I was wondering if the amount of snails i get is causing me to use a lot of my battery? I recently turned my display off unless im outside and got rid of my live background i get over 12 hours of moderate use which imo is amazing, but my dad is getting almost 24 hours. I get close to 100 emails a day because of forums and google groups.

auto on screen brightness won't save you any power. set it to 3% unless you're in sunlight and it'll be good. my phone lasts from 7am to 10pm with moderate use(calls, email, surfing the net) but i don't have any widgets on(gps, wifi, bt) and no live wallpaper just black screen. battery is set to smart mode with off peak hours between 11pm and 7am.
Currently the display is using 89% and the cell standby is 10%, there is a missing 1% somewhere.
Starting with Day 1 the battery pissed power like water going over Niagara Falls.
Starting with Day 2 the txt msgs started to lag terribly; 5 seconds from click icon to black screen; 40 seconds from black screen to black screen with white txt msg; and finally, 60 seconds to open the "conversation stream".
On Day 3 I installed Handcent and txt'ing results improved to 1 sec/6 sec/10 sec but by Day 4 it was lagging just as bad.
I had ATK and uninstalled it after trying to debug wtf is wrong with this phone. I uninstalled the few apps I wasn't using that I installed; got rid of ATK.
Today the phone has rebooted at least 3 times when I attempted to access txt msgs. After reboot #1 I uninstalled handcent but it didn't help. Since discovering the Running Services screen I've been killing crap I'm not using and magically, the battery is still about 75% charged. Every other day since July 15 it has been redlining by 4pm.
The phone is rooted. I did that on day 3 so that didn't start the problems.
Anyone care to debug this thing? Is it a lemon? Should I demand a new one? I'm just at a total loss with this thing.
I had a battery problem untill i removed ATK, drained and charged over night. My phone would last about 4-5 hours before this. I removed widgets and tried each one I found the the ATK used about 10% more jucie an hour. I also take the battery out every morning for a fresh restart. My phone last about 9 hours with all the widgets installed back on. So i say no ATK for me. I just use the one installed on the phone. This helped me I hope it will help someone else.
