Anyone else have battery issues with the new upgrade? I went from poor battery performance (could get about 10 hours with slight to moderate usage) to 6 hours life with basically no usage, just being on. Yes, location is turned on on the phone, but beyond that just have the 3G signal, in an area with 4 bar's phone coverage, no other network connections are in place, and I just use the screen maybe 10 minutes in that time.

I did the upgrade to get the mobile hotspot (which Verizon is still going to be configuring the account so haven't actually tried it yet) but if I can only get 6 hours, I don't know that I can survive it.

And yes, it's a sprint OS, so I'm not expecting any support from Verizon on any issues I find, so thought I'd see if others had seen worse battery performance. I know infonline said their battery life was better, wondered if others had had the same.
