    I've had my Pre + since June 2010 and was fine with the battery issues. However, all of a sudden, my battery life is only 3-4 hours even when I'm not using it. I have rebooted, replaced the battery, turned off wifi, still the same. This am I turned on Battery Monitor and it says my drain is 20%/hour, earlier it said 40%. Help!

    I am not tech savvy as far as jail breaking my phone and all that. As far as I know, I haven't changed anything recently. All help is appreciated.

    Could be a bad battery or some app running wild.
    Check the health with Dr.battery.

    This is occuring with 2 separate batteries, one is like new. This has happened very suddenly from one day to the next.

    I pretty much have access to the aps in the catalog unless someone has the patience to help me figure out how to add the other apps.

    Thanks for your suggestions

    Do I dare erase apps & data and then restore? Might this help?

    Likely an issue with the phone and not battery. Perform an on line back up then download and install WebOS doctor on your PC and doctor. I am guessing something is constantly running in the background.

    what does all this have to do with the op question? this is precentral meaning its all about webos, not droid! tryingtohaveitall are you overclocking?
    If you dont want voice dial, do this in terminal

    novacom -t open tty://
    mount -o remount,rw /
    ipkg remove pmvoicecommand
    rm -r /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.sysapp.voicedial/
    mount -o remount,ro /
    reboot

    No, I'm not overclocking. I tried the restore, lost several programs that I don't have time to refind and it's still doing it. The other day at work, I put it in airplane mode. Three hours later when I turned airplane mode off, my battery life was down to 50%!!! So frustrating. I can't have this. I'm giving up.

    Use the battery widget that will improve life time of the battery. It is free to download from Google play store
