    Hell yeah! Sounds like it'll make the battery life simply amazing.

    Oh, I'm sorry. I assumed that you were the same person who said they were running it stock.

    Day one of testing was with the sim card out, day two with it in. I compared the battery during the day at similar times and tried to have similar use profiles. At the end of each day I had 60% remaining.

    Today I will try deleting the social network application's configuration settings.

    After getting my DROID3 five days ago, I'm still getting horrid battery life. It's dropping at a pretty steady rate everyday, only lasting about 9hrs with any kind of use. I did a hard reset w/cache partition clear which didn't solve the problem. But after running the phone hard to get everything back on it still showed as much battery loss as if it was sitting asleep.

    The radio signal reports stays in the gray-brown-brown area, which is bad(or so I'm going from past posts) and can understand the radio going nuts over this, but my poor HTC Eris can be just radio for 3days ATLEAST(same area in my house) while this thing kills itself overnight.

    Hoping Moto comes with a patch soon before i hit 14days.

    Actually you can just go to your battery usage screen, press the top where it has the total time used and that screen will pop up. I did it on my D3

    Which battery mode does everyone use? Does Max life make a difference besides upating your data? Like Performance wise?

    I've been using Customer battery saver, Brightness near lowest, Offpeak Hours 1am- 6am Turn off data after 15mins, Turn off data always on for peak hours

    Day three is ending and I am at 70%! What is extra special about this is that I left WIFI on all day. I also unwittingly left my adhoc wireless connection on at work most half of the day so the WIFI settings only affected part of the day.

    Now I'm not saying WIFI gave me longer battery live. I said on the last post that I would test removing the Social Networking configuration. But when I looked for a way to do that, I came up empty. The app has nothing to do this with and under Manage Applications there was not much to do but force closing things. I'll detail this more in the morning if I have time, but suffice it to say that I thought that was basically a failed test. When I got to work I noticed I had left my WIFI on and decided to leave it that way.

    So tomorrow I will leave WIFI off and make sure the social networking and social location apps get placed in the autokill bucket. I'll have a cleaner test to report tomorrow, but in the mean time I think we have enough proof that these two applications are a source of battery woes. If most of you were like me, you at least tried the app Social Networking, and perhaps Social Location--parts of the bloat that Moto or Verizon rudely failed to clean off our phones before sending them to us. Well if like me you discovered the remarkably useless work flow that these apps forced you through--describable only by invoking the name Edsel, and then marched off immediately to the market and downloaded the Facebook app and so on, you may well be paying for your natural curiosity with lower battery life. I'll confirm this supposition tomorrow and let you know.

    I've been routinely checking the built in task manager, and I haven't once seen Social Location or Networking open in the background. I'm thinking it might have to do with that fact I've NEVER used either program. I use the dedicated appropriate app for each service, and don't ever bother with the stream-lined social networking apps. Hoping it stays that way and once root is available I will just be freezing all bloatware.
