    8 hours from full charge to no charge in 8 hours AT NIGHT... this is absurd.

    phone idle - 32
    com.motorola.providers.contacts - 25 (WTF IS THIS?)
    cell standyby - 24
    com.motorola.home - 9 (???)
    Andriod - 4
    Display - 3
    Alarm - 2

    I looked at one text message in the middle of the night.

    Have facebook, bloo, a google calendar widget, a weather widget... not sure what else. Bluetooth, Wifi, GPS turned off.

    Please help, I"m ready to shove this up a Verizon reps rear.

    PS - I called tech support, she suggested I run an app killer... UGH.

    How often do you have your facebook, email, weather, etc set to update?

    My email checks every hour, weather every 3 hours, I don't use facebook.

    I also charge my phone overnight.

    FB refresh is 30 minutes
    Bloo was every 2 minutes... I'm gonna uninstall the app and see if that fixes things.

    I meant to charge it at night, but I accidentally shut my computer down before I went to bed, and it was plugged into that... hence no charge at night.

    I don't think you need a factory reset. You had an app refreshing every 2 minutes for 8 hours.
    I'd start there. Also, you were asleep, do you need FB to refresh every 30 while you sleep?

    Bloo is gone... no, I don't need FB updating every 30... but its the lowest option.

    Using Juice Defender to kill data and wifi connections for certain time periods (midnight to six a.m. for me) and whenever the display is off has almost tripled my battery. Some folks don't like it but Im going to use whatever works. Fwiw Tasker can be set up to do the same thing. I live in a rural area and 3G was killing my phone.

    You can also choose a custom battery performance option and turn data off after a select timeframe and turn off sync during the hours you specify.

    maybe you're not getting a full charge. don't use the USB to charge your phone. it's not a raapid charger and serves no benefit to be hooked up to a computer. use the wall plug instead.

    I use the USB connected to my laptop to charge my phone while at work, it works just fine.

    I do know I can't use my old LG Env2 cord... anytime I plug it in using that my touch screen wigs out and won't work properly.

    it's also only charging at about half of what a wall charger would/could do.
