    Yes I have seen an improvement since .94. However, it really depends on your usage. I got a lot better then 1/2 day on .94. Do you keep wifi and bluetooth on? How many texts do you send? Browsing? It all contributes to how quickly your battery drains.

    Also if you have and 3rd party applicatioins check those as they can sometimes drain your battery if they are continuously running in the background.

    Im running .133 and this is the only version I have ran since I upgraded my Tmobile unit as soon as I got it so I cant compare to previous versions but I have to say that its on par with my 8320. I can get a full day out of it with decently heavy usage so I cant complain about it.

    No I don't use bluetooth, and no wifi...but I would sent probably 50-75 emails and I do talk a lot on the phone I just upgraded to .133 so hopefully this helps.

    Mine came on .101 and the battery life was horrific!

    Since upgrading to .133 the battery life has literally doubled!

    is there a program or feature that allows you to check running processes similar to Task Manager in windows? I should think there is at least a list, even if there is no functionality assigned to selecting an item from the list.

    depending your your OS version you can hold the menu button or hold alt and the back arrow together and a box will show the icons of programs running, you should only have 5, they are browser, home, call log, blackberry messenger and messages

    brilliant. thanks for the help. i had google maps, my camera, and scrabble running! i also turned off my bluetooth and my wifi to save battery life. however, since it auto connects bluetooth in my car, i'd have to turn it on everytime i get in the car wouldn't i? does it really drain the battery that much to have bluetooth on all the time?

    the apps running prolly would drain more then bluetooth but it would still drain some

    I found changing my backlight timeout to 10 seconds saved me tons of battery

    I can run 2 days without charging and I text / bbm atleast 200 a day plus
