    Thanks everyone .. a lot of great insight into my issue.

    I have read a few posts who have great battery life with "heavy" use after a cache wipe .. not so much for me.

    So its onto step 2 .. factory reset.

    Which brings up another question:

    - Do I move all my pics/vid/songs to my card then move them off of that before the reset ?
    (It would seem the thing to do, but I dont know :blink:)

    All of your pics and videos are stored on your SD card so there's no need to move them. Factory reset wipes your internal memory like text messages and recent calls. If you want to save your SMS messages use an app like SMS backup before you reset.

    Does anyone else have a charging problem? When I plug in my phone, instead of charging, sometimes it won't charge, and if I'm using it, it will drain the battery and sometimes die, while on the charger!!! I've gotten 3 new chargers and they work perfectly for about a month, and then it will do that. It has to be in a correct position and today it seems like it can't charge past 70%. It's really irritating and I cannot buy another charger. I just cleared my cache as well, but any help would be appreciated.

    Go to setting, battery, turn on battery saver.. see if that helps. I go 4 days on standby with it, and moderate use...

    I am pretty sure we lost that option when official ICS hit bionic unfortunately.

    My bad, I was thinking SIII .. I don't have my Bionic on me now so can't test. But I seem to remember a battery or power saving option. If it's changed, sorry, like I said I haven't played around on Bionic in a few days...

    Don't worry about it. I do miss that feature though.
