    A hand warmer! And man was it a good one.

    Today for the first time, I reached down for the phone (it sits in a holster) and noticed it was warm, really warm for being in sleep/standby for the last 2 hours. Pulled it out and noticed the battery down to 60% and 50% came just minutes later. Took a look and there didn't seem to be any abnormal amount of background activity, and the power widget was as normal.

    Long story short (I know, too late), a battery pull, and a charge later and it shut off on it's own and after a call the screen wouldn't come back on (buttons on the bottom were lit).

    So I restored to my last back up and it's all good. I did have the Verizon VVM half uninstalled so I polished that off and created another restore point. If you are anyone, heed these words..... BACK UP OFTEN!!! Anytime you spend any time on your phone improving or modifying, make a restore point.
