After struggling with a battery dying faster after the ICS upgrade I finally bit the bullet and did the factory reset as many posts suggested. What a pain, my Backup Assistant helped but I still had to reload all of my Apps and rebuid my home screens. After all of that effort, my battery is still dying faster. Now Verizon is sending me a replacement phone. I will have to do it all over. Is there a way to back things up with Google or something else? I thought the Apps would load from Google. Maybe I didn't do the right choices when all of the Next, Next options appeared during the reset. As of now there have been 203 views of this question and no replies. I conclude that thare is no way to help or this was too stupid a question to bother with. I guess I'll just go through the lengthy process of rebuilding when the new phone arrives. If that doesn't fix the battery issue i'll just make sure I have a power source handy and live with it.
