    I was fine last night because I had it plugged into my laptop via USB. It went from 100% to 72% being idle all night though.

    Is it true the battery life is better in 3G areas? I'm on the edge about (20 miles) from 4G and this battery life is whats keeping me away from this phone. But if I'll mostly be in 3G then maybe I'm thinking my battery will be better. I do go into 4G for school though.

    3G area, on a full charge yesterday I watched ncaa BB streaming non-stop for 4.5 hours, screen about 30% and volume 100%. Total time before it died was about 5 hours.

    stats in 3g, 7h 3 m sinc e unplugged...display 36%, voice calls 35%...sitting @ 70% battery. Comparable to my droid actually.

    FWIW I have made 3-4 phone calls, browsed forums this morning, weatherbug, etc. i'd say medium to light use. screen brightness is way down tho, put on like 20%

    7 hours at 70%? I can live with that, thats actually good compared to my droid now. I'm itching to get this phone soo bad especially with locking in 4g/3g. Only other thing that really bothers me is the lack of ability to change the led color.

    Yeah I already decided against it. I bought this phone cuz it was slim and thin. I've turned off the syncing and we'll see how far that gets me in my day :).
