    it's on when the phone uses the radio to access the web. What are you doing at that timen heavy usage can eat 10-20% per hour. As much fun as new users have with a pre, you are probably pounding it constantly.

    welcome. If you look around you will find some threads on saving battery kife.

    amazon sells genuine pre batteries for under $5 now, so I recommend you grab some spares.

    With GSM phones, the 3G icon is reporting you are in range of a 3G signal, not using data.

    When not in range of 3G towers, you'll see the icon change to either "E" (Edge) or less occasionally "G" (GPRS)

    Be glad you see 3G all the time! Those of us in fringe areas are not so lucky...

    This is completely normal.

    A little off topic but is it the same on an EVDO connection. EV lit up = data being sent and not lit up = no data?
