    30 mins, and using 10% without data on... you have a bad battery..

    You already did a factory reset?

    If you're willing, go into privacy, uncheck the backup and the restore boxes and then do another factory data reset... .. I've done two on both of my maxx's since ics...

    But since it didn't drop after 10 mins of use without data on... that says to me that its using a lot of battery to get to the towers... both of mine do that when I'm at home... but we'll narrow this down..

    is it normal for the time to restart every time my phone is plugged in or rebooted? i plugged it in for maybe 2 minutes earlier to upload the screen shot and it restarted.
    now it restarted when i rebooted.

    i'm in Fort Collins, CO. i don't exactly know if it goes back and forth, usually i don't pay attention.
    but i know at home my signal is worse than when i'm at work because i live in a basement.

    I live in a basement too, with solid concrete walls and steel/concrete ceiling. My signal goes back and forth from 3G to 4G, and I am in a metropolitan area.

    94lt1 can weigh in on this too, just for the purpose of being certain and exhausting all possibilities before going back to Verizon with it. But you might try using an app like "LTE On/Off" to see if it's the signal bouncing back and forth eating on the battery... at least long enough to see if it makes a difference ... it improved mine somewhat when I started using it.

    94lt1? What's your thoughts on this?

    A mountain gal I'm from montana originally my uncle lives there... how ya holding up from those fires?

    No, you've already done a factory data reset???

    I would say boot into safe mode.. but I think this is is a new phone situation..

    Call vzw and explain all the trouble shooting you've done, and request another device... this is a warranty situation...

    You haven't gotten it wet or anything like that have you??

    keeping the signal on 3g will for sure save battery . 4g in itself is a battery hog . then you add the fact it has to fight for its signal . it will help. but dropping 10% with data off in 30 min seems ridiculous .. even fighting for signal should not drop that fast . my tbolt made better battery life. i would try another factory reset and hope for the best . dont install any apps ands see what happens . you may have an app pushing data constantly for ads and such. but i doubt it

    edit or like 94lt1 stated may be time to throw in the towel and get a CLNR.

    i did do a factory reset after switching to ICS.
    i don't believe its been wet, maybe a little rain but not submerged in anything.
    i dont have insurance, will that affect anything? i've NEVER had to have insurance cause i'm really good with phones.

    UGH!

    and i'm holding up good.. we've had lots of rain finally so its been helping!
