    I was browsing through my contacts and I must of hit something. When I press the contact icon I just get a message "No recent status updates" and I don't see my contacts any more. What did I do and how do I reverse it???

    I found my answer, Here is another about Battery life

    I am not sure what I did to cause the problem, but by holding my finger on the screen and sliding it around an image saying status update came on and after doing it a couple of times all my contacts displayed again.

    Second question. How long should you be able to go between charging. I had a full charge when I went to bed and in the morning about half of the charge was gone. Do I have something running that is using up energy??

    all new phones need to be broken into so I say let it drain till about 15-20% before charging. give it awhile before improvement.
    just remember to end/close ur apps properly so it doesn't keep running in the background.
    check ur personal settings also for display, wiFi etc.
    also there are battery saving apps u can try. I use juice defender and im a moderate user, with approx 15-22 hours. u can customize to ur needs. but again, there maybe other apps that may suit ur needs better....good luck

    Thank you.

    Thank you for taking the time to help. I've learned a lot about droid 2 since I bought it 2 days ago, but I know there is still a lot to learn. I upgraded from a blackberry and I really like the droid.

    The first thing is do not worry about apps running in the background. Droid has an excellent OS and will close things as necessary. This will not affect your battery because even though they show running in the background they aren't actually in use.

    You have a google phone. Your contacts are backed up in your gmail account. Now I'm not sure what happened to your contacts, but I'll bet you tapped the wrong group on your contact screen.

    Now about the battery. These are lithium batteries and they do not require any conditioning. You should not let it run down completely too often, but if it happens it's ok. You can recharge it any time you like whether it's at 40% 60% or even 90%. It won't affect the life of the battery.

    Thanks Hook. I also downloaded Avaced Task Killer and it shows me what applications I have running.

    This is my first post and just some random thoughts, but here's what I've learned. Task killers + 2.2 or higher=bad. Google figured out how to manage apps within the OS and task killers mess it up and actually drain more battery. Li-ion batteries wear out. Its best to store them at moderate temperatures and at around 60% charge, but they still wear out.
