    I installed the latest update as soon as it was released. I almost couldn't stand my bolt anymore and was desperate for a fix. Since the update, its been awesome ..no more reboot, data connection stabilized, and just smoother overall. The cost is the battery life, which was not good to begin with to just awful. I used to last all day if I plugged during lunch. Today, I unplugged at 8 am, and it was at 5% by 1130 am. With that kind of battery life, it might as well be a landline phone. Any one else noticed this?

    Nope, mine still lasts most, if not all, of the day without charging.

    My battery got a little worse but not that bad. I use "2x battery" and my battery lasts most of the day.

    Battery life

    I, too was having a problem after I updated but went to my settings and found out that the update was causing one of my apps to keep running. Contacted co from app changed my settings and viola no more problems. Look at the about phone setting and see if there is something that is draining your battery. Hope this helps!:)

    The only thing with double digit usage is the display, with 65% even though my brightness to 25% and timeout to 15 sec. I installed 2x as suggested and after I unplugged, it said battery would be toast in 4.5 hours.

    Grabbed a pair of those 1700mah Trexcell batteries, and things have much improved. Getting about 10 hours now, and if its like the other one, it should get better after the battery is conditioned.
