    See this case.
    I Wake up at 8 and unplug 9520 from charger. Go to work tweeting and posting to Facebook, webbrowsing... I received about 30 mails and one call. Posted about 15-20 tweets, 4 with photo.
    Now is 10 pm and I still have 70% of battery. How did I do it?

    Turning off the 3G. Only use it for streaming.

    Well, after some experimenting I reached the conclusion that the radio of the .607 is so bad that it loses connectivity to BIS very often while on 3G, and not on 2G. I live in Barcelona city and there are no problems with 3G reception. Never had them with other OSes.

    Please, those with batt drain problems, could you check if this is a common fail of the .607?
    Let me see your comments.

    My reception with 607 is STELLAR. No matter where I go with the phone, with the exception of the fringes of Corpus Christi, TX. If I'm in some buildings there, the reception is very spotty. Everywhere else I travel with my phone, reception is perfect "enough" to be considered "perfect".

    The .607 OS is for the 9550 and not the 9520 as far as I know. This could be why you are having issues.

    no - 607 is available for both the 9550 and 9520 now. Seperate files though

    Worth a try. Funny how different this can be. My 9000 battery was best on 2G but my 9700 was actually better on 3G. I didnt think to test it on the 9520 because I thought the "better" 3G radio was inherent on .569+ os's regardless of the device.

    So I give this a try even though im running .669 (no DRM) which is far better than .580 but better battery would in any case be warmly welcomed

    You can only turn off your "3G" if you are on a GSM network. In which case you would go into your mobile network options and change your network mode to "2G".
