I make about 10-15 calls
Send/Receive about 30+ emails
Send/Receive about 40+ SMS/MMS texts
Send/Receive about 10+ BBM
Facebook 10+ messages

Aps running are as follows:
Weathereye, Youmail, BBM, Facebook, Viigo, Telnav, googlemaps, slacker radio...

With all of the above I make it through my day with about 5ish% battery left. After my day is over I have a 30 minute ride home, Yeah for the car charger!

I am using .282 and was using .247 prior to that.

When you are done switching OS's, if you are still having such bad issues you may want to call carrier and do a warrenty swap.
Jarrod, are you using a photo stored on your media card as a background wallpaper? or are you using a wallpaper that is stored on the bb memory.

Someone suggested that if the photo being used as wallpaper is stored on the media card, then the battery life will be affected as the photo is being constantly retrieved.

I have moved the photo that I am using as my the bb memory. I will test to see if my batter lasts longer.
