I also used a task manager to quickly kill all the background apps while I was outside, just a one-click end process. 4 Hours later, I check my phone and its at 40% battery. I checked what's been taking up the battery, and the Android OS has taken up 80% of the battery. Very strange.
    Mine has been doing that a lot lately. Sometimes it shows the WiFi usage is the culprit, even when I'm nowhere near a hotspot, but it's usually Android OS.

    I had a similar problem in mid Sept. The phone was always running warm and using Battery Monitor Widget app it was consuming 125-150mah when asleep. Before that time, it would consume 20-40mah while asleep, so as you can tell, that shortened my battery life from about 24 hrs of light use to about 6 to 8. The temps were also running higher. I searched everywhere and found nothing. I cleared the cache and even did a hard reset and to no avail. Finally i tried to get on 4g (since i usually leave it in 3g mode) and it would never connect, just remained in 3g; it wouldn't even show a white 4g. It also took a few minutes after fully booted to find 3g signal. I played around with the Sim card and finally called verizon. Tech seemed to think the 4g attenna was broken and when the phone starts it will do a network check briefly flashing to 4g even if set to 3g and it was stuck in some sort of loop constantly trying to get 4g service. In the end I got a warrantied replacement bionic which works great now.

    I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this already, but Smart Actions helped me out with this by suggesting a rule to disable background syncs when my phone is not in use ("Battery Extender" rule). My battery life has definitely improved using this.

    Motorola's website. And word on the street is that Moto is debating whether 246 or 247 will be the OTA build. If 246, we won't get JB. If 247, we will get JB as long as they can get it out by March. This basically sucks.

    That's a very good question. Confirmation emails haven't gone out yet. If we don't see them by Thursday, well, there will be a lot of pissed off people. So I don't know. I really don't.
