I was wondering if Aim and Facebook running on my Droid affects the battery?
If they're working properly, they shouldnt.
Check for yourself: Settings < Battery Manager
I would think it's a matter of how often you have it check for updates.

Yeah, if you have them polling for updates frequently, it can kill your battery pretty quickly. A few of the instant messaging apps I've tried (Trillian & eBuddy) have an option to reduce the time between polling when you aren't actively using it to help conserve battery life.
When I didn't have that option set, it would put a decent drain on it, and if I was in a low-service area like my desk at work, forget about it... It could drain even 50% of an extended battery in 8 hours.
This may be a stupid question but how do you check to see how much time between updates you get..
ok so I just got on facebook and set the refresh interval to "never".. I hope that saves battery but now does anyone have an idea for aim?
Instant messaging right?
It's constantly running I assume. Probably can't do anything about that other than exit or keep it plugged in.
Can I unlock my Droid??????
I want to stick a different sim card in my Droid Global. Can I do this without Verizon giving me a passcode to unlock? They will not give it to me until I have 60 days with phone! Help!!!!!! Thanks!
I mean Im checking the battery status.. and it says 2% was used by aim so Im assuming that it depends on how many messages you get..or something like that..
