    what do you have your mail fetch schedule set to?

    i had mine set to hourly. i'm setting it to manual to see if it improves battery life

    Mine is set to manual so I can just check for emails whenever I choose to.

    sweet. did you have that set up from the start? or did you set it up after having the phone for a few days?

    what i'm trying to get at is did changing the setting help battery life

    I have mine set to every 15 minutes and it does not make a huge difference. I have tried 60 and 30 minutes and it just does not make a huge difference.

    My galaxy S2 was set to check for mail every 5 minutes 24-7 and it never had a battery problem.

    i am coming from the incredible 2 so this is less battery life than i'm used to. still an amazing phone.

    definitely keeping, will just have to charge more often
