Now this is something I don't get.... (I did do a little searching to no real end and then decided to post. Please guide me to the relevant thread if this has been asked/answered before) I have the AOL Radio app running while connected to the 3G network (usually around 1-2 bars) and the phone is plugged in to the computer (using the supplied USB and no iTunes) and yet in a matter of ~1.5 hrs my battery goes from about 80% to about 30%. What I can't understand is that why is it doing this even when connected to a power source? Is being on 3G such a drain on the battery that even when plugged in, it's not enough juice? Or is this a defective phone?? In the hour after I stopped AOL (still keeping the other settings the same), the battery has charged to almost 100%. I did read somewhere that discharging/recharging the battery is supposed to improve battery life though this should not be done often as it will kill it. I haven't had this phone discharge completely in the week that I've had it as I have a habit of charging it when I get home. Should I try it though? FYI, I reset my phone just before trying this. So the settings are pretty much the default : 3G : ON (Usually get 1-2 bars and sometimes switches to EDGE with 1-3 bars. Though stayed quite a bit on 3G for this) Wi-Fi : ON (But not connected) Location Services : ON Bluetooth : OFF Push : ON Fetch : Manually Apps : Epocrates, Facebook, Linked In, Palringo, Pandora and AOL Radio Screen Brightness : ~30-40% Auto Brightness : ON Auto-Lock : 1 minute Whaddaya tink iz goin on?
