Default Battery Life, OS upgrade???

Please Login to Remove!

I use my bb everyday, LOTS and love it. I have had it now for about 6 months and have progressively added more apps as I needed them. Recently, I have experienced a huge decline in battery life, now when I take it off the charger at 8am, I'm lucky if I can make it to 5pm, and that's with maybe 10 <5min phone calls. I know that certain apps are draining me, but need the use of some or something similar if you have ideas. Here's what I know are probably HUGE hogs.

YouMail and YouMail app
Instango all in one IM app-anyone have suggestion of a free all in one IM?
Facebook
BBWeather
3 BB email accounts

Instango seems to be the big battery killer, but I need MSN and Googletalk, and running both seemed to kill my battery about the same, anyone have an idea of one that does not eat battery?

I'm still running the original At&t app OS, .167 and am wondering if I "should" upgrade to improve anything?
