    Ever since I updated my Playbook to 2.1, my 9930 battery has been getting absolutely murdered if it's connected via bridge. Anybody else experiencing this? I literally go from 100% to 0% charge in 6 hours without using the phone at all. I shut off bluetooth so I'm not connected via bridge and I use 50% battery in 12 hours while using it some.

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled bridge on my phone, as well as battery pull and rebooting both several times.

    Yes I noticed it also. I'm running Torch 9800 with 747 release and rroyy supplied bridge.

    Yes, this is because of Bridge through Wi-Fi. When in a Wi-Fi zone all data runs through Wi-Fi. I suspect that Bluetooth data transfer is more battery efficient. This will need to be fixed... But I suspect that it is a technical problem.

    Slight problem with that theory. Neither were on wifi most of the time, the phone was sometimes, but the data up and down was constantly going crazy. It's not a matter of efficiency, it's a matter of constantly going to town doing nothing vs doing nothing. Friend of mine says his is much faster and battery is fine.
