    My wife has not changed the way she uses her phone but I will try what lionz did and see if that worked. If not ill be taking it to Verizon. Also she has never used a task manager or battery monitor

    +1 for me...

    My wife's Fascinate was rivaling my Droid X in battery life, getting 18 or more hours per charge with an average of 1 hour of talk time and 3 hours of screen time. Now she is lucky to get 12 hours per charge with similar usage or less.

    The display is by far the biggest user of battery life for her. 30 minutes of display time consumes more than twice the battery that 45 minutes of talk time does. This is quite unusual for her phone as well as my DX.

    I have did a battery pull and the *228 option 2 with little or no difference, but if it was a signal strength/tower issue the biggest battery user would be "cell standby" rather than "display".

    A coworker found the same battery issues and he managed to take care of it after removing all of the new Widgets and things on his homescreens.

    The upgrade moved him from 1 honescreen to 7 and he didn't know it until I talked to him. It was also very sluggish.

    I'll know more on Monday but it seemed to have fixed him up yesterday.

    Went to verizon to ask about the battery drain and the tech said no one in the store is aware of a battery problem. He did not even know froyo was released.

    Say your car is acting up and you take it to the dealer to see what gives. Would you go to sales and ask the what's wrong? Probably not. You would go to the service department. Store reps know how to sell. They know about the features and specs of a phone better than most anyone. Just like a vehicle salesperson. Once you get to the what's wrong part they usually have nothing of merit to offer. Need technical help? Dial *611 and select the option for tech support. This issue is so new even tech support will be of little assistance. After enough calls the engineers will get on it and a patch will be issued.

    I went to tech support not to sales. His solution was to download froyo task manager and start killing programs

    After experiencing huge drop in performance I'm trying out the following:
    Took off juice defender plus, plotter, and auto memory killer (they work together). Kept my normal auto brightness and other saving options...installed battery monitor widget and testing out.
    Wi fi is off

    Sorry if it appeared that I was being critical of your post. I was making more of a general statement than addressing a particular post. I have my concerns over store techs. Some of the posts I have read makes it look like the store reps take turns being the "tech" as the comments I see quoted do not seem to be coming from tier 2 tech support personnel. Even if the store tech is legit their exposure to a particular issue will be limited to walk in customers. A phone tech will be getting calls from all over the country. At any rate I am a little miffed that this ota was not tested in real time. It wasn't like there wasn't enough time. There was a six day gap between approval and the rollout.
