    Greetings, recently my battery is draining fast! Really Fast! I looked through all my apps and made sure that everything is as it should be. I made sure that Navigation wasn't running for some reason, and so on. My phone is also getting very warm, a lot more than it used to. Any thoughts?

    NOTE: I GAVE THE WRONG INFO! PLEASE LOOK AT THE EDITED (BELOW) INFORMATION.

    Are you in an area that makes getting a signal difficult? Constantly searching for the network can drain your battery. The warmness makes no difference, anything that causes battery drain will cause it to warm up too.

    Here is a trick to try:

    Go to settings>wireless&networks>mobile networks>Enable always-on data. Uncheck always on data.

    See if things improve.

    Just had this happen this morning. It literally went from full at 8 am to dead at 10:30 am. And HOT!

    I bring my phone to work with me every day. It sits in the same place every day. I don't know what variable could have caused this--with the exception of updating one app (Jewels) yesterday afternoon, I have not done anything that I would think could be the culprit.

    Do you know what the internal temp of the phone is? If its getting hot, it might be that your battery is the problem, not the programs or applications draining it.

    If you look at your battery use and select "Cell Standby", does it say "Time without a signal: 50%"?

    If it does, try putting the phone in airplane mode, plug it into the charger for a minute or 2, unplug the phone, and turn off airplane mode.

    That seems to be a common problem that is draining people's battery. For some reason after upgrading it got stuck constantly looking for signal.

    While I agree the 50% without signal is annoying, the word on the street is it really doesn't affect anything. Reason being, is because it could say 50 percent of the time without signal, and you could have had 2+ bars the whole time. HTC has admitted that the bars and the amount of signal you have are not very accurate, and don't always correlate. Also, if you check your network stregth in your phone, a lot of times when it says 50% WOS, you acutally have a network signal (DBM), even though it says its trying to search.

    Check out other peoples forums and you'll notice that the 50%WOS doesn't really do much but be annoying.

    BTW, what version are you using? 1.5? 2.1?

    Try dimming your screen if you don't need it at full brightness.

    I don't trust auto. I use a market app called Quick Settings to adjust it myself (it has a slider that allows several levels of brightness).

    Update? I am guessing that no news is good news.
