With all due respect, turning data off, on a smart phone renders
it a *dumb phone*. What's the point? Might as well just trade it in
for a 7-eleven throwaway.
There's a lot of ideas in this thread, some good, some bad but
I've got a question for anyone else who drops in here.
Can anyone match my standby battery performance?
Wifi on (and spend most time in Wifi environments)
Wifi on when phone sleeps (because Wifi radio is more efficient than EVDO)
2 *polling* email accounts set at 30 minutes (which contrary to popular myth
and the recommendations of this thread, uses less battery than "as items arrive")
I can get 60+ hours of standby on the stock battery between charges, with the above settings.
I've done it several times with 1.3.5 and 1.4 (and now 1.4 + 800Mhz patch).
Obviously drain goes up when I'm in poor coverage areas or using
the phone actively, but that's going to be the same for everyone.
I think my settings are pretty much optimal, and my results prove that.
