I'm looking to the experts here for any help. The fix appeared to have resolved most of the problems. It definitely improved battery life. However, they just popped up again for me.

One thing I noticed is that the freezing/backlight issue tends to occur when my data connection switches between 1X and EVDO. The reception and data coverage is pretty spotty where I'm at. I'll notice the issues mostly when the icons on the today screen are switching between 1X and EV. Has anyone experienced anything similar...any fixes hopefully? I don't have any 3rd party apps installed. I do have my two email accounts set to retrieve every 10 and 30 minutes. Everything else is pretty standard.

Please let me know if anybody has suggestions.
