    I have noticed an issue with mine where after it has been "asleep" for a while and I turn it back on I cannot access the internet and have sync errors on my mail accounts because of the lack of internet connectivity. It seems to be more noticeable when on wi-fi to the point where I have to turn it off and back on before it works. I have also noticed it on 3G (no 4G here yet) but it seems to start working if I wait a few minutes.

    I think the pathway is Settings>About Phone>Battery
    That's it. Thank you very much.

    I think the virtual keyboard is far superior to my D2. That was one of the main gripes I had with it. I would have a real hard time entering text, even in landscape. The keyboard seems fine to me.

    I want to get this phone really bad but not sure about the battery life. That really concerns me. I'm gonna wait to see if I hear anything else regarding the battery life.

    Also can anyone confirm about changing the color of the LED through handcent??

    ...the sense keyboard seems wonky as hell though.
    The automatic space and capitalization on my swype beta doesn't seem to be working...Anyone else having any issues?

    Seriously, just dump the brightness down to 25% or so and you will get at least 6 hours out of the standard battery. If you are really worried, get a 2nd one and/or extended battery.

    I believe you can change the color of the LED in handcent, but can't change the blink to a "steady on."

    6 hours...really?? I didn't know it was that bad. So your telling me without touching my phone at a days of work, by the end it will be close to dead?

    Are you not aware that for most smartphones this is the case? Before I rooted my OG Droid I couldn't get through a day...

    Well, this thread convinced me that the tb was overhyped, as I suspected. I always believed the leaks and artificial delays were designed to get more early adoptees. for those of us who can't stay plugged plugged in all day, the battery sounds like a deal breaker. Bloatware is a problem. I don't want to spend money on something that may possibly be improved by rooting. I wanted it to be good out of the box.

    If people are already disappointed, it's only going to get worse as they find more annoyances.

    I got 8+ hours during a typical work day, I just threw 6 hours out depending on usage as I know others use them a lot heavier than I might.

    My Droid X, which has the same version OS and same size screen lasts the same amount of time the TBolt did on a standard battery. The only thing I did not test with the Demo TBolt was how it did on 4G LTE.

    I would recommend that you use Wifi whenever available, that seems to save me tons of battery (2nd only to dimming the screen).
