    Since updating my 2 DX phones to GB, our battery life sucks. Used to go all day and now we have dead phones in 4 hours. This is useless and unacceptable. In searching the net, no help found really. Some say wipe the phone, some say don't. Some say go back to froyo, some say don't. Some say the improved battery life, hundreds say they have my problem. No one says for sure how to fix the problem, no one says how to go back to froyo. No one says factory reset. I need specific, step by step instructions on what to do, how to do it, how to back up my phone and apps if I must do a factory reset. I know if I go to Verizon store, their only answer to everything is to do a factory reset with no help in doing a backup and restore. help me,

    Life has returned!!

    After over a week of misery, 4 hours of battery then death, and really not using the phone except for a very few minutes, Last night Success! dancedroid

    I had tried turning off every app I could, I had changed screen brightness from Auto to around 35%, no help...

    Last night I dropped screen brightness to about 20% and VOILA, it is now 12 hours and counting and battery says about half left!!

    I am not sure what will happen when I am back at the beach on weekends, I am sure I will have to up the brightness to see the display, but I know I have to keep it as low as possible.
