    I like a lot of people have had issues with the battery life. After a full night of charging I noticed that my battery was degrading fairly quickly even quicker than my previous phone which had a very small battery. I started looking for answers when someone on this forum mentioned the MAIL settings. Specifically the AUTO and MANUAL modes for checking mail. I switched mine to manual night and I alreadynotice a difference. I took the phone of of its dock at 630am and its 11:15 and I still have a full battery after a 5-10 min fone call and numerous texts! Also there is the absence of alot of that GSM feedback from surrounding speakers. I think that when you have the settings at EVERY 15 or EVERY 30 the phone ends up using a lot of juice and is even worse if the signal is poor and maybe the phone keeps trying get a good signal to check the mail. Whatever the case is my phones battery is much better and that noises from the interference is gone!


    Cheers!

    I have minde on AUTO 15 mins and get 3 days of use. Maybe 1.5 hours talk timea day. 3 or 4 hours of listening to podcasts using the built in speakers a day. Uncountable times looking at email and showing it off.

    First thing I did was shut off bluetooth.

    honestly I really can't see how your getting that. I had my bluetooth off. I think that u might be getting a better edge/wifi signal .. in my case its prolly bad signal and auto mail check mode. Anyone else getting better results!

    I have not charged mine since Tuesday. I spend all day, at work, on these forums:) and my mail is checked every 30 Min. But I have only made maybe 5 short calls and have WiFi off.

    oh, i should add, i am due for a recharge- at 20% now.

    what is the difference between manually checking e-mail and having the iphone check it every 15 or 30 minutes? I have mine set to manual and when I sent myself an e-mail from my computer using different e-mail accounts. My iphone still notified me that I had a new e-mail in less than a minute. Your replies would be appreciated
