    [h=4]Thanks TMD - just read your tips in above link. Thanks. A Qiestion or two, follows:biggrin:

    1. Have question with: After I do the fdr, I first go into play store and make sure it is not automatically installing all my apps and stop if it is... cuz I want to do those one at a time. Usually I discover there are apps I do not use or want anymore this way. But this is not necessary. Unsure of where to disable auto install in Appstore?
    [/h]2. Had this from lst FDR, when I first got phone. Forgot if I will lose all files on my removable SDcard. Yes/No? -- It says all imports will bedeeted, but yet says I have option to save Micro SD contents, so I assume my SD removable, is safe from deletion?
    (I saved files to my computer, just in case, (Photos, files, etc.)
    Factory Data Reset removes everything that was imported, added or installed on the device. Keep in mind, when using this feature everything is deleted. Nothing stored on the MicroSD or the internal phone storage will be affected unless you choose to erase it as well.

    Factory Data Reset
    • From the screen of your phone, press the Menu button
    • Tap Settings.
    • Scroll down and tap Privacy
    • Tap Factory Data Reset
    • Check Erase internal storage if you would like to erase all the data on the phone internal storage such as applications, music, movies or photos.
    • Tap Reset Phone

    1. Yes, I always restore one by one for same reason. Go into settings in play store > my apps... if the apps are automatically installing, just hit stop at the top of the list. Then you can slide panel to the left and all your previously installed apps will be listed.
    2. Your removable sdcard is safe. Your internal sdcard should be safe also, unless you hit option to reset that.

    I wouldn't just yet. There should not be a problem. I will occasionally copy my entire cards to pc and reformat cards and selectively restore, just to clean them up...but I always do that when I can take time to know exactly what I need to restore, etc.

    Answer to all your questions is yes. Clear cache, factory restore, do battery meter training, and all will be good. Discussion of these steps is there in the same thread.

    Good luck! :p

    My battery drain is also horrible right now and I am dying to do the update BUT everytime I update and have to do a factory reset I lose to much stuff that I need. Is there a way to back up EVERYTHING and put them back in after the reset. By everything I mean all my text messages, sticky notes that I have on my phone and homescreen settings?

    *EDIT* I forgot to mention that I do have Titanium Backup Pro that I forgot about, will that do everything I need?

    TismyDroid and FoxCAT-
    Thanks for the help. BUT>>> phone was set to factory reset, and full battery. Now, from 0700 hrs -1000hrs, with WIFI on for appx 1 hour. Screen reports 75% usage and that's crazy because I only used the phone for 15-20 minutes. Will let battery drain and calibrate, and cross my fingers, and keep u posted.

    I'll cross my fingers with you. Charge to 100% with phone off, then use to low battery warning, then charge to 100% with phone off again. Hopefully that will be the final step to getting decent battery.

    Will do battery calibration, but I am losing hope. Phone sat on desk, and was used to text and reply to one message, sine last post. Batter now at 50 percent, since full charge at 1000 hrs. That 5Hr 15 min and already lost 50 percent of battery. All was so much better before ICS. I actually hate a phone I liked so much. My sister and niece just for Samusung S3, they use the hell out of it and the battery is a charm. UGH! I have another year to go on my contract,
