    An observation -
    I went out of contract with Verizon and bought an unlocked GSM for Straight Talk. A hassle setting it up for
    MMS but that's another story.
    CDMA - Fully charged at 2200 hrs on Bedside Mode - 79% - 82% battery @ 0600 hrs. GSM under the same
    circumstances - 52% - 55% battery.
    I put the Z10 Verizon battery in the Z10 GSM and get the same results.
    Both phones running 10.2.1.2228 with the correct Radio for each phone.

    Signal strength? If the signal is weak, the phone will try to poll to get a better one which, in turn, uses more battery life. Most MVNO's don't get priority for the carrier's bandwidth as well so if the AT&T network is congested in your area, you generally get tossed to the bottom of the line.

    Both with 3 bars in the bedroom, both using IMAP and Push enabled. 2 or 3 emails per night with no attachments.
