    Not sure if anyone else is seeing this.

    I've been locked in a server room all day with my Storm switching from 3G to 1x to SOS and I still have 60% battery left!!

    Usually i would have been close to 10% or worse by now.

    I am using all of the same apps except I am using AIM & Gtalk instead of Instango.

    I even have GPS on "location on"

    I wonder what they did to achieve this????

    Poor battery life is the reason I downgraded from .140 back to .151. 230 has been a dramatic improvement in battery life for me also.

    Same I can now go through a full day with out worrying that my will die on me. This is the first OS that I can actually work and not have to carry around a extra battery.

    Under normal use battery life was the same for me. But once I started using my BT battery drain almost doubled. Thats one of tbe reasons I went back to 167.

    battery life seems better for me, but I upgraded 2 days ago, I'll see. Wake up at 7 am and now its 9:45 PM and I'm at 50%. I used my phone for a few calls, lot of text, web browsing, e-mail, IM
    Good so far

    I have to agree with this as my battery life is substantially better than before.

    It all depends on user habits. Battery life won't get much better until a new tech is implemented.

    Wow! Really?

    My battery life is almost the same as the extended battery I purchased from ebay, and that was pretty much double the life when I had .148

    Im not saying mine was bad , it just never really seemed to change from os to os. Ive always seemed to have the same battery life on all of them. Still have the same battery that came with the phone back in january.

    My battery life is phenomenal. I am using a pretty stripped version of the OS but after 5 days .230 just seems to be running better every day.

    Okay, I let my phone's battery discharge completely last night. Overnight, I charged it. At 9am this morning, it was 100%. It is now 11:24am and I am down to 65%.

    Since 9am, I sent a few text messages. Checked my email. Made NO calls. That's it. Now I'm down to 65% in 2-1/2 hours of virtually no use??

    The only thing running in the background, besides the default services, is BerryWeather. I have my phone's GPS set to 911 only. My network is set to 1EXV.

    Oh, and since I had been having battery and memory issues for the last few days on .230, last night I completely wiped my phone, uninstalled .191 and .230 from my computer, reinstalled them, and then reinstalled .230 on my phone. Yes, I remembered to uninstall Quincy before loading .230.

    Any ideas? I don't know what could be eating up my battery life.

    It's a refurb unit that I got in August because my original phone had a problem with the touchscreen. It's the original battery, though, and I got it with my original storm in July.

    EDIT: Btw, I had AMAZING battery life with .191 so I don't think it's a bad battery.

    With .230, my battery dropped to 25% in about 24 hours.
    With .140, my battery drops to 75% in about 24 hours.

    Bluetooth is on all the time.

    Do you suppose BT on .230 is a battery vampire?

    BT typically does eat up your battery. Mine has been off, though, and I still have sucky battery life with .230.
