This is gonna sound weird, but no, I do not run any apps, nor do I use e-mail or Internet (I have the National Block from Verizon activated). I bought this phone purely as a phone/ my phone does not communicate with any external sites, including Verizon. So obviously that does not eat up battery power.

I leave BT on all the time.

But I don't think any of that has to do with whether or not the phone charges to 100%, or 95% in my case.
