    2.2.1 update is killing my battery!

    My Fascinate was recently updated to 2.2.1 and now my battery life is terrible. I have advanced Task Killer installed and set to high security but I can't keep a charge. Any suggestions?

    Sincerely,

    Frustrated Fascinate(r)

    Advanced task killer tends to do more harm than good on 2.2.

    Also, have you factory reset since updating?

    Should I uninstall the ATK?
    I haven't done a factory reset...I will lose everything right?

    I uninstalled the Advanced Task Killer but my battery is still dying WAY too quick and I'm not on the phone constantly. ARGH!

    I told you to factory reset it. After most major updates you have to factory reset.

    ARGH! There's already quite an extended thread for this, and only a few posts down, if you'd only taken a few seconds to look.

    Follow Jenaht's instructions to recalibrate your battery stats.

    Then, consider not having 3G turned on when you're not using it, along with: wifi, bluetooth, gps, and anything else when not in use.

    2.2 brings vastly improved batt. life for the informed. I'm getting 24 - 30 hours, where before 2.2 I was lucky to get 14.
