Battery Life - Help!!!! :(
Ever since upgrading my OS to 540 my battery life absolutely sucks. I easily lose about 12% of my battery life per hour so I get about 8 or so hours from a full charge. Basically I have to continously charge the batterry during the day.
I love this phone and it will take a bit more than this to make me give it up, but I was wondering if anyone can offer some tips to extending your battery life?
I have only UberSocial and Facebook running in the back ground, oh and what's app.
Any help would be appreciated.

if your running uber social and facebook in the background and have them always looking for updates that will drain your battery very quickly. it takes a matter of seconds for facebook to update when you open it, so why run it all the time?

Me having the same issue. i have very few apps running (i dont have any GPS enabled apps running all time, except for foursquare which i promptly close after each use) but the battery consumptions is too much, it lasts a maximum of 6-8 hours.

Get a Nokia AC-6U charger and make sure your phone is running the latest operating system and you will have good battery life.

New os's come out fair quick, a new one will leak soon enough.
I turn Bluetooth Off when I'm not using it.
I have Smart WiFi App which turns WiFi off depending in he cell tower my phone is using
I have Battery Booster App which monitors apps which are running in the background and not being used. It also turns wifi off when the phone is in the autolocking pouch.
I also looking for an auto battery pull app, this should clean slate the phone every morning. Auto Reboot doesnt work. Error message and app doesnt open.
Edit: Installed deReset, it works.
I will report back on the outcome of these new purchases. Just installed the above.

I was using a 9850 for a couple of weeks. I installed updated Yahoo Messenger from App World, but I never use it. All of a sudden my battery started to run down fast. I deleted Yahoo Messenger and then I got 12-16 hours battery life again.

i get amazing battery life on .540. its all about what apps you have, how you use your phone and how diligent you are with closing your apps out properly. i keep my backlight on 10%, shut everything down properly, have apps update once an hour and delete problematic apps like scoremobile. i get under 2% discharge while at idle on wifi and 4G and like 3-4% during normal medium to heavy usage.

I let the 9900 charge over night using the Nokia charger.
I just downloaded an hour long MP4 and Watched it. My Battery is now at 82%. I used my 4G connection only to download the MP4.
I also have/had 3 extra programs running in the background.

I'm on 65% since my last charge 8 hours ago, made a couple of calls, sent a couple of text's and done some web browsing. I reckon it's quite good... Have the battery booster app and dimmed the screen backlight to 10.
