    Okay, so I was complaining in some earlier threads about my battery life, but the problem seems to be fixed. I took some of your suggestions about what to do, which helped a lot! First, I set my email to "as items arrive". Which I saw a small increase in battery life. Then I set facebook notifications to "manually" and there was some more increase in battery life. Thenn, I noticed that I ALWAYS have developer mode on. I shut that off and noticed and increase too. I decreased brightness a ton, it used to be half and now its about 5%. I hate having a dim screen, so what I did was edit the picture and make it bright, then sent it to my phone, and it looks just as bright as the default
    Thanks guys for all the suggestions!

    I agree that doing those stuff kinda increase batt life a little. The best battery consumption is to keep your phone charging at all times.. ^_^

    Actually, your battery still drains when the phones off ...

    Takes a long time, but still happens...

    I put my phone in airplane mode every hour since my battery only holds 700 mAh now.

    Thank you for the tips. I turned Facebook to manual, I didn't even think of that. I changed my weather app to update less often and did the same for my Sports Live app. I turned brightness down to 35% from about 50%. I may lower the brightness more, but also do not like a very dim screen.

    A couple more tips; In location services, turn Auto Locate to off. Also turn off GPS. Any apps that require these will promt you to turn them on, on an as needed basis.

    Turn Data off. With Sconixs advanced mod, that's in the device menu where Airplane mode used to be. Probably the most SIGNIFICANT battery life changer yet. I'm talking like 6+ hours of battery life.

    But the only things you can do are Phone/Text.

    That sounds like a good idea. When you use all of your daily apps and pull up the launcher can you see everything without any problems when in sunlight?

    This is how my screen looks with brightness decreased to zero, and the picture is edited.

    I finally got my wallpaper to look how I wanted it to with brightness all the way down. I don't have Photoshop or anything so I downloaded a free image editor and did the best to my ability.
