    May be a silly question, but where have the settings gone that allow you to determine how often to look for new mail?
    Since the update, my battery life is really bad again and this is usually the culprit. Thanks.

    It should be under Accounts & Sync on the Settings menu. Select the account and you should see the Update schedule setting on the bottom. You can set frequency on peak and off-peak hours.

    My accounts/sync page does not have a settings option. When I select the account, the only option is sync now or remove account.

    I don't use Yahoo but for Gmail, after you go to Account & Sync and select your Gmail account, touch where it says "Update schedule" and you'll see where you can set Frequency for Peak times and Off-peak times. Sorry for not being too clear. HTH

    You were clear, but that update schedule option does not exist on my phone. Nor do I see it anywhere else on my phone. It's pretty annoying that this option is gone.

    Hmmm... interesting... I no longer see an Update Schedule in Google Account settings anymore, and it is not in the Gmail app either. Odd... I have it there for my Exchange and Facebook accounts, but not Google account.

    I agree, battery has been brutal since update. I have extended battery and used to get 36-48 hours, now I barely get to mid afternoon before having to charge to make it thru the day. Tried every setting I can think of. Tried to catch any rogue apps draining, but can't seem to figure it out. So frustrating.

    What mail apps do you use? Are you able to specify your update frequency?

    I have the gmail sync option and phone updated a couple weeks ago. The day after update batt life was bad. Went in and force closed some apps that shouldnt have been running, and then all was good again.

    Sync is not the problem. Setting how often I want to retrieve mail is the problem. I use task killer regularly, so random apps aren't my issue.

    You shouldn't use task killers. You are making your phone work harder than it needs to be. Android is designed to keep apps in memory for efficiency, if you are constantly killing apps, it will constantly be reloading apps, making it work harder and drain more battery. Search the forums for more in depth info.

    Also if you are constantly having to kill an app, might be time to find a better alternative...

    I'm aware task killer can use energy closing and then having to open the same app, so I use it on apps I don't use often but have a constant update. The same way I used it before the update. So task killer isn't what is draining my battery more now than previously.

    I'm thinking sync frequency might not even be my problem either. I seem to be getting poorer reception than I've ever had before. Seems like its searching for signal constantly probably killing battery. Just strange since I'm in a huge market in Atlanta and havent changed anything on the phone other than the update. I'm at a loss.....

    By "weaker than normal" what do you mean, I have noticed no changes in actual signal strength as measured with Network Signal Info which looks at signal strength in dBm, it was exactly the same before and after.
