    Don't use encryption on your router.

    - Use Wifi whenever possible
    - Sign out of instant messenger accounts when not in use
    - Use 'Roam Only' when in poor Sprint coverage areas
    - Set screen brightness low
    - Set screen shutoff timer as low as you can
    - Adjust email sync interval
    - Use Airplane Mode if possible (you won't be able to make/receive calls or transmit data)

    There are more tips, but these are the ones I could think of off the top of my head...

    I've tried just about everything since 1.3.5. I'm starting to lose hope in getting my battery life back.

    Turn off: IM Chat, GPS (on-demand only) and Bluetooth and Wi-fi (or if using WI-fi use unencrypted Access Points only). Brightness to lowest possible and preferably minimal preware.
