    My battery life has been horrendous since the FRG22d update. I have a task killer. I don't play many games during the day. But my phone now dies after around 9 hours unplugged. Help?

    Do you have a corporate email account? I found that since there is a certificate problem, the corp email continually tries to connect, thereby draining the battery.

    I had to delete the account. BTW, you can't create it again until they fix this bug.

    Note someone said this isn't a bug, but a problem with the microsoft exchange configuration, but Verizon appears to be saying it's a bug and motorola (or google?) is working on it.

    Battery life

    My corporate email is set on push and was not updating until I hit refresh...this seems to be working correctly now (a sign that they are working on the problem?). my battery life is really bad, bought an extra battery I get 8 hours at best. added Task killer, eliminated a bunch of apps hoping to increase life.
    I hope the fix is coming soon.

    Trying running without the task killer. Or at least, disable them from automatically killing. They're unnecessary with the phone's OS and apparently 2.2 made them tend to be the source of battery life.

    thats the mentality that needs to be used with windows OS, kill everything possible to save memory and power.

    however android does not work like that. Get rid of your task killers and try to find that app that is draining your battery.
