    I have been trying to figure out why my battery life is so poor if I select WiFi off. I'm running latest 2876 OS. I don't have data on my plan (just voice and text). If I either leave an area with a WiFi signal. Or I select WiFi off (even in area with wifi) my battery drains about 4x as fast. The only way I have figured out to save the battery when not connected to wifi, is airplane mode. I am connected to 4g wireless at all times. Is this common? Any help appreciated

    Definitely not normal. Have you tried a reboot of device?
    In BBVE is there anything you can identify as a specific drain?
    I'll hazard a guess and suggest that this is a glitch related to your 2876 update.

    I actually had problem with 2813 as well. I tried to wipe phone, then loaded 2876 with sachesi hoping to clear problem. But no luck. Possibly I didn't fully wipe phone properly. Under bat monitor, graphs seem all over the place. System shows 87% followed by android player 36%, then display 23%

    If you're missing a decimal point in your values I don't think they are out of the ordinary but if not that's significant.

    If this has been more than a few days syncing should have settled but the WiFi off drain suggests some sort of software glitch. I would be inclined to reload 2876 with an autoloader or BBLINK. Apart from the Android runtime issue it has been really stable for me on both a Z30 and PP.

    Good luck!

    How's your network coverage? Do you live out in the country, away from a big city?

    If you don't have a data plan, you don't necessarily need to keep your phone on 4g. 2g and 3g are good enough for calls and text messages.

    I'm not missing decimal points. The coverage here is pretty good with 4g, I've had on 2g before which makes a small difference. I'll try reloading software again.
