    Hey all, what type of battery life are you guys getting for your Storm? Mine was fully charged around 11 (4 hours ago), and since then I'd say I've had a lot of use, and I'm under 50%. Is this normal?

    i was wondering the same thing...might need to pickup the extended battery when it becomes available.

    It'll be a while until you "break" the battery in...

    Give it a week to really gauge the battery life.

    followup questions:

    1) When I used initially, vzw basically gave me a drained battery. I used to set settings a few mins, it shows the battery was almost dead, then I charged it. While charging, I played around with it a bit. Did I screw up my batt?

    2) For the next few days, should I let it drain fully, the charge fully, etc?

    I would definitely let the battery drain fully before charging it...

    You can reduce its charge capacity by charging it before its fully drained.

    This is only the case within the first few charge cycles.

    I was having battery problems. I then found (on here) that if you put a couple of long (16hr) charges into the phone then it does improve. Mine sure has.
