    The first 2 days after installing 1.3.5, my phone had terrible battery life. But after about 2 days, it went back to normal. I'd recommend just giving it a few days and seeing if it improves.

    Why would I do this if I know that turning Wifi off already results in only 4% per hour battery usage? The phone's data connection isn't causing it. I'm sure I've narrowed it down to the Wifi. I'm just going to leave it off until the patch. Should only be a few days away anyhow.

    P.S. Not trying to threadjack here, just assuming you were responding to me.

    I'm having an issue...seems when I'm NOT using the phone and have everything turned off (wifi bt and messenger) I still get profound battery drain. I took it off the charger in the middle of the night with 100%. I woke up a few hours later and it was at 60%. What gives?? I only received one text and one e-mail alert while I was sleeping.
    That doesn't seem normal to me.
    Any suggestions? I was just about to say "screw it" and get the extended battery. I can't be away from a charger for more than a few hours without the battery totally dying on me.
