    First, is you phone hot (temp)? Heat/Temperature is the biggest enemy of your battery.
    Things to check:
    Remove Task Killer
    Lower CPU speed
    Turnoff BT is not needed
    Check GPS settings
    Lower the brightness



    What are the primary uses of your phone (web, mail, txt, calls)

    That seems unusual. I think you should go to VZW and ask for a replacement.

    If you decide to take it in, make sure you unroot and push it back to stock.. You could always just try a new rom & kernel, see if that helps first.. No need to take it in just yet.

    BB worked well for me, didn't drain any faster then normal.. You could also give Chevy's Simply Stunning 4.6 a shot, works like a charm on my phone. Or, you could just do a hardware check and flash the stock-rooted rom.. It's up to you.
