    So I upgraded to .99 a while back and instantly my battery life was in the toilet. If I was lucky I was getting maybe 6 hours with a full charge and that was with very light use because I was afraid I would not have the chance to recharge. Well I did not realize that when I did the update to .99 I would have to reconfigure Weatherbug. I finally did go into Weatherbug and selected to use by zip code and turn off GPS location. Ever since then my battery has been outstanding! Today I was showing off the phone all day, did a ton of browsing and messaging, and of course waiving my phone like an ***** with the new lightsaber app. Well my phone has been running since 8:00 am and it is now almost 10:15 pm and I still have a battery at 75%!!! I hope this helps some people out who are having issues with .99 battery life.

    My battery life has been impeccable since upgrading to .99. Normally I would barely make it through a day on one charge with .75 and Weatherbug set for GPS. On .99 with Weatherbug set for zip code, I'm usually at 75% at the end of the day. Weatherbug is a huge battery drain with GPS enabled and .99 seems to be improved as well.

    Ya, I've had the same experience. Batterly life on .99 has been quite generous to me compared to some of the other Betas. But I can agree that the weatherbug GPS locator contributed to the drain!

    Battery life is close to what it should be in .99. I have been very happy!

    hmm.. I don't have weatherbug installed and if I left my phone on from 8 am to 10 pm I would be around 50% maybe less with light messaging/browsing.

    Anything else that could contribute to this battery drain? brightness is on 10 and gps is off.

    I did drain the entire battery and recharged
