    i'm working outside 5 days a week. Listening to radio stations in different cities helps make my day go faster. Sad thing is I am working 7.5 hours and my phone won't last that long.

    OK, so plugging in is not an option then?

    One dumb question, are you able to turn off the screen while listening (makes a big difference).

    Consider investing in a Seido extended battery or two. Two should get you thru the day.

    yes it does turn off after 30 seconds. I can't really afford an seido extended battery that costs $65 right now.

    If you working outside, why don't you just invest in a portable radio? Why must you be so difficult and listen to stations that are outside of state? Do they really play that much of a difference in music?
    I live in Manhattan, so I listen to z100, when I go upstate to the country, I listen to 104.7 (dunno the name). I compared the two stations, and they play the asme songs just in different orders. I understand you want to listen to outside radio stations, I have a Colorado station in my favorites, but sometimes you gotta make sacrifices. Cannot want one thing and another at the same time. If you want to listen to radio on your phone for extended amounts of time, then you gonna have to sacrifice battery life. Maybe cut back and listen for like 20 minutes at a time, give your phone a break.

    You gonna have to stick with Android if you sell your droid, and you aren't gonna find a phone capable of what you want. You want a PHONE to do what a COMPUTER/RADIO is meant to do -_-"

    I post in so many of these battery threads I lose track of the ones I have said this. I really need this on a clipboard or maybe copy it onto a a word doc program.

    The best thing you can do is go to Amazon.com and get two regular batteries. It will be under 20.00 shipping included. Invest another 5.00 on a charger that plugs into the wall from ebay. Buy from the guy in Brooklyn, he's faster and easier to deal with then the guy in China.

    Charge up an extra battery….or two with the wall charger and your good to go. Just replace the battery as it wears down.

    It's a phone at the core plain and simple. Not a radio, not a computer and not a tv. make and send calls. Everything else is extra. Want the radio for more than working out or waiting for your ride? Buy a portable radio or mp3 player.

    You want to extend battery life? Get an ulv kernel if the phone can handle it. Get a task killer and set it to lill all apps not used 24/7. I went from 8 hours to 2 days just by doing this. I am still working on it but I think 2 days for max usage is pretty good. The phones are made ti (if you have it in you) to bend them to your will. DO IT. Test it.
    Think about it. A stock laptop will last 2 hours on a battery. Why would a stock cell phone go longer?

    i have simpl;y stunning 4.4 on my phone, where would i find a uvl kernel for it? I do have a task killer and I noticed it has killed alot of apps. I guess I'm just used to my regular phone lasting a long time and my plugged in pc lasting a long time.

    before downloading and installing a kernel, make sure you backup incase the phone can't handle it. Use Chevy1's kernels. the ulv kernels 7 slots are fantastic for battery life plus speed but some phones (like mine) cant handle max speed. Nothing you did, just the phone itself.
