    In the last 11 minutes it has dropped from 75% to 68% while it sat on my desk unused and the phone is really hot for some unknown reason.

    you might want to check your settings since it might be downloading (maybe update package?) in background.

    I know this sounds wierd, but I think you get better battery life with Gmail set as Push as it arrives, instead of checking every 15 mins. I tested this this yesterday, afternoon than this morning only using email everything else of and over a 3 hour period used 4% less battery with Gmail set to push..

    go figure

    I pulled it off at 8:30 am and have been listening to pandora almost the whole time and have spaz updating every 5 minutes as well as push gmail. As of right now I'm at 41%, so not horrible.. I think once they fix the radio issues it'll be much better though.

    Well, it looks like my battery life concerns may have been a bit premature.

    It's now 12:40p, and my phone has been off the charger since 6:05a, and is currently sitting at 70% battery life. On Saturday it was draining at an alarming rate, but was a bit better on Sunday. Today I have sent about 30 text messages, 3-4 emails, and been on the phone for about 30 minutes.

    The only thing I did was lower the brightness to about 20%. Everything else has stayed the same settings wise.

    EVDO on
    GPS on
    Wi-Fi off
    Location on
    Screen idle - 1 minute
    Email on my primary IMAP "as items arrive"
    The other 2 are on a 5 minute fetch

    I think the battery is finding its legs after a couple of full charges and this can often be the case with the Li-Ion based batteries. Still going to need a week of charge/usage for real results, but I'm really liking what I'm seeing here.

    Hard to say on mine, I've been using the touchstone approach, to the point I'm thinking of getting a second one to have at the office instead of taking my current on between two places (or just buying a second cable and just bring the touchstone between house and office).

    I LOVE the touchstone simply because it acts like a cradle did for me...IE I can just sit it on the touchstone and unless I need to type most of the day I can leave it there. Streaming my podcasts, checking gmail as they come in, looking at the calendar, see texts as they come in, etc...can do it all while it sits on the touchstone. If I need to type I pull it off, type, and on it goes. Only have it off at work when I'm going to a meeting, walking around the office, lunch, etc.

    So on a normal days use I will probably be able to keep from ever even getting close to 50% no matter how heavy I use it in between going home and work.

    Seriously, if we get an onscreen keyboard it'll be perfect as I won't even need to take it from the touchstone at times.

    My phone is on its last leg as we speak. I know its under 10% and I'm getting the "phone will shut down very soon" message. I took it off the charger at about 8am. I definitely need to buy another charger for work. I was doing that with the 755p. I've had Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and chat off all day.

    Took it off of the charger at 9am... its 6:01pm with no battery left. This phone gets abysmal battery life for me.

    I think it has something to do with the radio. If I put it on airplane mode, it lasts forever.
