    How do you check to see how much time is remaining on the battery? The icon at the tom does not display this when you click on it. What is the easiest way to do this?

    Thanks.

    Go to settings, about phone, and then status to see battery level. Your battery % is also shown on the lock screen when it's being charged. If you want it on the homescreen, you'll have to download an app from the Market. There are quite a few of them and since I have never used one, I can't say which one is the best.

    Yes, if you just want to know the level, there's Battery Widget. There's an app called BatteryTime, which not only tells you the level, but the amount of time left for talk, idle, etc.
    Many more battery apps to chose from, including one that has a chart.

    I would think Time is subject to what you are doing with the Phone..Screen time is the biggest battery drain.

    Yes and by killing the screen when not in use, YOU save a ton of battery life! There are widgets as spoken of earlier to see what you are looking for in the marketplace. I would also recommend the advanced task manager to manage the battery life more closely. It works well.

    I use and like Battery Left. It seems to be very accurate once it's had time to learn your system and your use.
