    Hello,
    I just switched from Apple to Palm/HP webOS 3 days ago.
    I LOVE this phone, it does soo much. Although, battery life for me isn't the best. I've been reading some of the forums on here, and I see that people have optimized their battery to about 12 hours from the regular 5 that I get, just by turning off 3g. Now I know how to turn off 3g on Verizon, although how do I turn off the 3g on AT&T's network on the Palm Pre Plus?
    Thanks!
    By the way, How do I copy and Paste?

    If you have not dabbled in homebrew, the way to turn off 3G is to go into Phone Preferences in the Phone app and switch "Data Usage" to off. If you are homebrewing, then you can install a Device Menu patch for easier access.

    Copy and paste:
    Select text by holding down SHIFT and tapping on text.
    Then copy by having one finger on the gesture area and hit C.
    To paste have one finger on gesture area and hit V.
    Or you can use the application menu --> Edit menu.

    push and hold the arrow up button on the bottom left of phone and tap on the desired text until it's highlighted yellow . Then hold down on gesture area so light is on and push the "c" button to copy. Then open a text field and make sure your text indicator is flashing , hold down gesture and tap on the "v" . This is copy and paste . Also while copying you can tap hold and drag up or down to highlight desired text

    I've been using my Sprint Pre running webOS 1.4.5 unpatched w/o homebrew for the past few weeks (gearing up for the 2.0) update. My battery has been lasting 14+ hrs with moderate usage. I have GPS, Bluetooth & Location Services turned on and connect to wifi when ever possible. This is MUCH better than I remember before I started homebrewing. Palm really has improved battery life through their updates. If you are only getting 5 hrs, I would say it probably has alot to do with spotty AT&T coverage in your area or a bad battery. I'd get the battery tested. If it checks out, it could be a problem with your coverage in your area or your 3G antenna in the phone. Either that or you are streaming music and video and playing 3D games for the whole 5 hrs. That would do it.

    Buy an extended battery, they are same size as your original battery. Buy Mughen 1400 mAh battery. They are cheap and will give 3-4 hours more of battery life for same size without adding any thickness.

    Why bother with the extended batteries. You can pick up OEM Palm batteries for ~$5. I picked up a couple and can run my pre round the clock.

    Dont have to carry an extra one with you, only have to remember phone and not phone and a battery. Dont have to turn the phone off. Plus its the same size.

    people have been saying that the extended batteries are often overstated. there is a file you can look at on your phone (using internalz or the terminal if you dare) that states what the real use mAh of your battery is. OEM seems to be most truthful

    big help is turning off gps and in your location services "app" on the third screen of your device. If it is checked, it is gobbling your battery much faster
