    To remove the social networking configuration, just remove the accounts to the services used by social networking. I removed facebook and twitter from the my accounts application, then used the standalone apps instead of the moto aggregated feed. Now if I open social networking, I just see the option to add a new connection.

    On the social location app, remove all channels and there is nothing to sync. This looks like the old aloqa application to me, kind of obsolete after using the new google web service.

    Second day I had the phone, I had to charge by 3pm. I changed to the CDMA-only setting, as mentioned by many, and changed the WiFi setting to "sleep when display is off". Phone made it all the way to 11pm.

    These were under Manage Applications. They are:

    Social Location
    Social Messaging
    Social Messaging Service
    Social Networking
    Social Sharing
    Social Status

    At this time I'm betting that was all WIFI. Although I tested pulling the SIM card and not specifically changing the settings, I've tried the settings and didn't see much difference. I will test the settings later to validate that the result is the same.

    These don't all appear in Tasks as mentioned. Social Location does and I put it in jail even though I never used it.

    One other note, Social Messaging Service has an icon with an A in it. I take that as an indicator that it isn't a part of the bloat.

    I've left mine on nighttime saver. Its funny, I don't need my battery use lowered at night.

    I will play with these settings after I've proved the other things that have been recommended.

    70% again today. I am suspicious of that number so I am restarting my phone tonight and will see what I get with no changes or tasks killed tomorrow.

    Part of the problem is that I killed some tasks and some of them--the bloatware--started back up. If what I did was achieve 10% by killing Facebook--and I did kill Facebook--then I am not doing what I set out to do. I already know I can save battery by removing Facebook and killing data and not using my d3 in the same way I used my d1. I could also save battery by buying a less useful phone.

    I hear ya. Try telling that to a VZW rep who says there is nothing wrong with the device and that all Android devices use lots of battery so turn everything you'd like to use off in order to save it. What's the point of having the phone? No one seems to want to touch the fact that our D1s lasted 2-3x as long with the same "usage" patterns.

    Generally I get phenomenal life out of my battery, but the other day I had a bad one. Got 4 hours of moderate use with the extended battery. the battery stats showed Maverik pro using 60%, I backed out and kill tasks, so it was only running for about 5mins, but still used that much battery. Stupid zombies did the same thing a few days before that.
