    What mail apps do you use? Are you able to specify your update frequency?

    I have the gmail sync option and phone updated a couple weeks ago. The day after update batt life was bad. Went in and force closed some apps that shouldnt have been running, and then all was good again.

    Sync is not the problem. Setting how often I want to retrieve mail is the problem. I use task killer regularly, so random apps aren't my issue.

    You shouldn't use task killers. You are making your phone work harder than it needs to be. Android is designed to keep apps in memory for efficiency, if you are constantly killing apps, it will constantly be reloading apps, making it work harder and drain more battery. Search the forums for more in depth info.

    Also if you are constantly having to kill an app, might be time to find a better alternative...

    I'm aware task killer can use energy closing and then having to open the same app, so I use it on apps I don't use often but have a constant update. The same way I used it before the update. So task killer isn't what is draining my battery more now than previously.

    I'm thinking sync frequency might not even be my problem either. I seem to be getting poorer reception than I've ever had before. Seems like its searching for signal constantly probably killing battery. Just strange since I'm in a huge market in Atlanta and havent changed anything on the phone other than the update. I'm at a loss.....

    By "weaker than normal" what do you mean, I have noticed no changes in actual signal strength as measured with Network Signal Info which looks at signal strength in dBm, it was exactly the same before and after.
