    The battery life you're getting sounds horrible. Couple of things, do you have a weather app, is your phone searching for service alot of the time, and what OS is installed? As far as your screen protector, VZW won't do anything for you as it was your idea to get one.

    Check to see if your apps are auto updating. If so, I would try to lengthen the time it checks for new items. Also, you might want to lower the backlight brightness and backlight timeout under the options>screen/keyboard. I have mine set to 20 for both and its helped a lot.
