    I had the same problems many had after the GB update with battery life. Giving in and doing a factory reset (what a pain) all was well until the last 2 weeks. It would last all day and sometimes more!
    Now, the battery isn't lasting 4 hours!!! When looking up what is sucking the life out of my droid x is different operating system items. One day it is com.motorola.service.main, another day it was the motorola.contacts, today it is wakelock using 63% of my battery overnight. Any help or advice would be greatly apprectiated! I am about to give in and go get an :iphone: iphone! I don't WANT to, but I can't keep struggling with what was my favorite phone ever for the last year. I need a phone that works, not dies when I need it.

    For all the views of my posts, I am surprised I got NO responses!!

    I DID get response from Motorola tech and here is what he suggest:

    Got email from moto support tech.
    THis is what he suggested:

    Remove all accounts except gmail. Turn phone off for 30 seconds.
    Restart, then add back accounts. *this is not so much fun, but much better than a full factory reset again*

    Update phone with *228 option 2

    He also suggested the following battery management app.

    I did these things this morning AND....

    It is now 7:35 pm and my phone hasn't been plugged in since this morning, gotten more calls than usual, lots of emails (of course with reinstalling all my accounts again)... and my battery is around 2/3 full!!!

    Under battery usage, voice calls and display are back on top where they belong, YEA [​IMG]

    We will see over the next few days if it stays working well again...
