    Like many others here, I too have noticed problems with the battery life on my wonderful new device. I work 3rd shift and last night I noticed something that I haven't seen mentioned here. I began to notice that my usage time since last charge seemed higher than my actual usage on the phone. So I tested it. I made sure that Wifi and Bluetooth were off and Email was set not to auto check and I put the phone on standby from midnight to 700 EST and did not touch it. When I checked the usage it had gone from 2 hrs (which was a lot more than I actually used) to 3:37. Over an hour and a half of usage and I didn't touch the phone. The battery is now at about 50 % and it has been about 14 hrs since last charge and it says that I have 3 hrs and 50 mins of usage and I pronbaly really used it about 30 mins if that.

    Any Ideas????

    Try a soft re-boot. Press the screen lock button for a few seconds, turn it off, wait a few seconds and hold the screen lock button to turn it back on.

    If that does not help, try a hard reset using the home and screen lock button together for several seconds.

    Also, if you are charging - make sure it not charging from a computer that may sleep, a sleeping computer will not power the USB port.
