    I am disappointed with the battery life of my Droid X. I am wondering if I have a defective battery or if others have a similiar problem. My battery never seems to make it until the end of the day. I do use it often but I never had problems like this with my Palm 700p.:icon_eek:

    I've had the same problem since the recent updating from Verizon... the new version of Droid OS is using up a lot of battery power...Is there an app that can help or correct this?

    If you go to Settings>Accounts & Sync>Background Data, you will that it is turned on, which constantly updates your contacts Facebook statuses, Tweets, etc. While this is on, it is constantly running in the background, draining your battery. I always keep it turned off because I like having a longer battery life. Just a suggestion.
