    I just moved to a different carrier so I got now 3g I was in EDGE so i am not sure if battery last less.

    With EDGE i should have almost 2 days of battery.

    But with 3g I am having a lot of troubles usually 6 hours, I have been reading that if your phone changes a lot from 3g to 1EX it drains your battery quick has this been confirmed? this can be the cause? I am not sure what to do now

    If the phone is switching a lot between 3G and 1x then you are on the fringe.
    Phones boost power to stay connected.
    Burns battery.

    It kills the battery faster than just about anything else you can do.

    Do you have your network settings set to 1XEV only?

    I'm having the same issues only while at work cause its kinda located in a rural area(lasts about 8 hours). When back home I get full 3G coverage and the battery easily lasts all day. Your area might not get full 3G or the phones antenna could be bad.

    I had the same issue. Dial ##000000 if ur on verizon that will bring u to the cdma service edit screen. Look at ur home sid number. Right that down and call cs. Chances r that number will be dif then the number the csr says on there computer. That's what I did and it made a difference.

    yeah I live in a 1X area and stay there a majority of the time, but when i go to 3G or I get poor battery life, then when I get back into 1X its not bad. 1X net speed is awful
