    I've had my Droid Pro a little over a month now, and the only thing I was dissatisfied with was the battery life. Saw the suggestion that I should delete multiple copies of apps. I did that. One thing I truly don't need is extra profiles. I don't need one for "Every Day" "Work" and "Weekend." I completely cleaned out the work and weekend profiles. There is now nothing in either of them. Today my phone has been off the charger for about 10 hours and still has a 70% charge. My phone spends most of the day on "Airplane Mode" because where I work doesn't have Verizon service, but it's never been 70% at the end of the day before. One day isn't a full test, but I'm very hopeful.

    You do realize that you probably had better battery life since your phone is on airplane mode "for most of the day"?

    Sounds like it was on airplane mode before the change too.

    It was in airplane mode at work most days before.

    How do you delete a profile? I've gone into the 2 profiles I never used and deleted all widgets, but I can't find any way to completely delete the profile.

    I asked the same question in a separate thread. No one seems to know, or perhaps it's not possible. I don't need to remove the profiles if getting rid of the stuff in them works, but they are unneeded and it would be nice to get rid of them. I guess some people do need them, though.

    best thing to do is under the display settings:
    1) turn off auto brightness, and set it to a steady medium or less brightness
    2) also change animations from all to some

    display is what accounts for most battery usage

    Happy for you. There's nothing wrong with me, thanks, I have no desire to have an extended battery or live wall paper. I'd like to get the most use possible out of the battery that came with the phone and I don't need some of the bells and whistles that have been sucking up batteries.

    lol I was kidding when I said whats wrong with you people. I'm simply saying the extended battery is well worth it, especially if you dont use live wallpapers. Nothing wrong with the stock battery but in all honesty, Motorola should have shipped the phone with the extended battery.

    I too have a problem now with my extended battery. It won't last for more than about 9-10 hours because......I'm constantly using this great phone and downloading the hell out of some data....:D LOL I'm somewhere north of 12GB of usage this month. :D

    sorry, as you were....

    Worked yesterday. Phone on airplane mode most of the day. Still, used it plenty after work. When I woke up this morning the phone had been off the charger for 22 hours. Battery was at 50%. That is an improvement.

    Interesting that you choose to put it on airplane mode, seeing that you lose half the capability of a phone: receiving calls.

    I am still waiting on my extended battery and I use a live wallpaper called "Solar Winds," specifically the "undertow setting." It's very simple and doesn't seem to have much toll on the battery. I think that this may be because it is mostly a black background. It's really mesmerizing.
