    Hi jltung, I do understand that powering up GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth hardware, that battery life will decrease. And even more so if the Bluetooth "connects" to something. But GPS is looking to satellites, and WiFi for WiFi networks, and Bluetooth for other Bluetooth devices. None of those come over the 3G network, so I still don't understand how a good 3G signal helps. But that's OK. By the way, I now have 70% battery left after today, after a full charge last night! I think I can live with that. Eric

    Edit 12/4: After thinking about the impact of 3G reception, I think what happens is that if the coverage is bad, the phone keeps transmitting to search for towers, and that would certainly impact batter life. Even a "dumb" phone would chew up batteries if in a poor (or no) reception area. It just keeps trying.

    fixed finally

    Ok guys just thought I would post my two cents.... this phone was my first Android all my previous phones were winmo and blackberry. Any way after checking every forum I knew of for a battery life fix I finally got mine figured out. I'm a very heavy data user but I was constantly pulling 100% awake even after every fix posted. I finally started shutting down apps and rebooting to test. I currentl6 have HTC's mail and messaging widget, Facebook widget, gps always on, stock sms, mobile always on and everything (facebook) included updating at the shortest interval and the highest I have peaked out at is 61 pretty much sitting at 20-35%. The culprit? IM apps.... had ebuddy as soon as I uninstalled and reboot 100% awake gone. I tested palringo, nimbuzz, aimer, and hi aim all with the same result. Going to try, IM+ now but I think ill have the same result. Probably dumb not to have thought of this earlier but I never had that issue on winmo or blackberry so it never occurredto me. I just hope this helps someone else and saves the frustration I have been dealing with for weeks now.

    This lil change: "Uncheck" Menu > Settings > Wireless & Networks > Mobile Networks > Enable always-on mobile, made on my Eris made a HUGE difference in battery usage. I'm not a power user but by the end of the day I'd be down to 20/30%... now I'm at 60/70%. Whoooahhh! Nice job whoever found this one!
