    I think I found out what is draining the battery. I turned off my wifi and put the signal on 2G mode. I am finding out that the battery lasts longer. Are you getting the same experience?

    3G can be very taxing on battery life. A lot of people opt to disable it and stick with EDGE. You only really need 3G for mapping and streaming audio or video.

    2G lasts 3-4 times as long as the 3G from my experience.

    No freaking way! That shuts down multitasking... That's like going back to dialup after being spoiled by FiOS.

    I find that I save a lot of battery by signing out of msn, facebook and twitter instead of leaving them logged on to update. I only sign in when I want to check them and sign out when done. Saves so much battery. Beyond that I don't have much trouble with battery life. I turn 3G off most of the time and only turn it on if I'm using my gps or I want to view a heavy website and need it to run fast.
