    My battery is dying sooooo fast! Way faster than it ever has before. Like this morning I took it off the charger at around 7 15, forgot it when I left the house, and when I hot home only 3 hours later it was already in yellow. I had not used it at all and it barely lasted 3 hours.....any ideas before I take it to Verizon?

    Same here ??

    I have the incredible with the upgraded 1750 mah battery and it also sucks. Mine has been off the charger today for 6 hours and 20 min and awake for 2:35 min with 47 min of talk time. No apps running and the display as dim as possible and I have 40% remaining. IMO that is not a lot of use. We also have two Droid X's in out family and the battery life on those are WAY better than the incredible. The incredible does have the worst battery performance of all the Android phones.

    Uninstall all apps that you've installed and readd them one by one. Or, you can do a factory reset in one fell swoop and take care of it at once.

    That's interesting. If you don't mind my asking, what does that accomplish?

    Just to add my 2 cents. I have noticed the same thing.

    When I got my phone, opening day, the phone was known and was a battery life POS. Then FROYO came out and wa'la all was good in my life. I was getting 32 hours from the miserable 10 to 12 prior to. Well that has all changed now.

    IMO it has been ever since the last update I got from Verizon. Not sure of all the good it did. Even Verizon could not tell me all it was for. What I can see is that now "Slacker Radio" and "Skype" are hard wired into the FROYO/Verizon software. I have done some searching and have found that "Slacker Radio" is a known battery hog. The funny thing is that I do not use Slacker, I am a "Pandora" fan. I have even turned off the updates for this APP but no joy.

    Comments?

    Yeah I don't use radio at all, but I was pretty sure apps were eating up my battery, but I've reset many apps and uninstalled a bunch that I don't use anymore, and even some I did use. However I didn't notice a difference at all. What really helped me was from the previous post about the networks(thank you sooo much!) My WiFi connection was turned on even tho it wasn't connected. So what I can determine is I had both WiFi and the mobile network turned on and it destroyed my battery. By turning off the WiFi I have already noticed a huge difference in just half a day.

    This may be the case. I will say that I always have my wifi on because of my work and home networks. Again, after the FROYO initial update my setting were the same as now and I did not notice this extreme battery usage. But since this unknown update (unknown cause I cant figure out what it did) my battery sucks. By the way I have the 1750 sedio battery as well.

    What can anyone say about a ROM update or should we just live with it until Gingerbread comes to DINC?
