    I have had Takephone for the last week and a half and really like it. The only problem is that since I installed it, my battery life stinks. It seems like I hardly use it much and by mid day, I am below 40 %. I am not 100% sure that it is takephone that is doing this, but I have not added anything else other than TP and it only started after.

    Is there something in this program that COULD drain the battery more?? Is there a setting that I need to check or uncheck.

    I have a Treo 600 and have the following apps installed:
    Snapper Mail
    Launcher X
    Butler
    Splash Photo and Splash ID

    Any help would be great

    Well, I guess I will do my own test. I am going to remove TakePhone and see if it makes a difference. If it does, I will have to get rid of it I guess.

    I have had TakePhone in my custom ROM for a few months now and have not had any problems with extra battery drain. Any one of those you have listed could add drain depending on the settings.

    The only reason I am even asking is because since I addes that (TP), the drain started. The other apps were fine before. It may be a setting. That is why I am asking for help

    Hi,

    I can not think of a way for TAKEphONE to drain battery.

    Maybe it's just so convinient you use your phone more .... ;-)

    Anyway - TAKEphONE does nothing in the background (like reading emails, or anything), so I cant think of anything...

    Please let me know (contact@shsh.com or here) if the drainage stops after you remove TAKEphONE (or not).

    Thanks !

    Just an update, it was NOT takephone doing the battery drain. Actually, I was on vacation for the last 5 weeks and just got back to home and it stopped. Realized that the house I was staying at during this vacation was out of zone so my phone was roaming the whole time, thus draining the battery. All of that happened the same week I got Takephone.

    Sorry for the blame game.
