    Thanks for the info! I would say Google is not backing up app data to the Google account. Looks like app data is only on the phone and gets erased during a factory reset.

    So does anyone know what the Backup/Restore check boxes do under the Android Privacy settings? I thought those were meant to preserve the app data in situations like this!

    ok, so battery life was MUCH better after reset. Lasted from 430-1730 before batery drained to 30%. HUGE improvement from before. However, this morning while getting settled in at work listening to some music, phone shut totally off mid song. no clue, but i would say there is still an issue somewhere...

    I have noticed that my battery life is actually bettter now that I have the Up-date! first couple days sucked but it did get better and now better than ever! DO have a question though, I have seen people refrencing a "Factory Reset" HOw do you do that?? Was hoping it might bring back my LED missed call lights! I have searched my settings and this forum with no luck, Can someone please steer me in the right direction!

    For the record, after factory data reset, my Phone Idle and Cell Standby are almost always in the single digit % range, and not 20 or 30 % like before.
    But, I have much less apps installed now too, so it may no longer be grounds for a fair comparison.
    The factory reset did not auto-reinstall my apps, and all my app related data was lost :(
    Battery life is comparable (but certainly NOT noticeably better) than during the Froyo days.

    i have also did a few factory resets and did show some improvement but not alot but the biggest improvement was letting the phone run out of juice untill it turned off then leave the phone off while recharging it untill 100% do that a few times ihave much better battery life now :icon_ banana:

    I was also listening to music using the stock music app and the phone froze and rebooted twice so far. I have not yet made the decision to do a hard reset which might clean out some stuff and make the phone work better...

    8 hours running on battery, after a full charge.
    10% battery remaining

    84% screen display (lowest intensity)
    7% cell standby
    5% phone idle
    2% DroidForums

    Decent battery life?

    After GB, I noticed the poor battery life being talked about.
    I noticed in setting s that the screen time out had been changed to 15 minutes.

    I changed it to two minutes and battery life increased dramatically

    Good news! I finally had time to factory reset my phone, and it's now running flawlessly! Even better than when I had Froyo.

    Re-installed GoLauncher and have seen no lag or battery change either, and no black screen when I use Google Music.

    Thanks for the help all
