I've never even heard of this issue.
My battery lasts me all day, and I text a lot (no internet-related..anything, and minimal calling.. i hate calling).
There are some 'special' batteries that you can buy, but it'll cost you. I think the website said the batteries last 170% more than the normal batteries (that means almost two text messages and then the phone dies -- i think..i suck at math)
If I find the site I saw this at, i'll post back here.
Also, I'm sure you know of these 'tips', but I'll post them anyway:
xxx8226; Better switch off the Bluetooth feature if you do not need it. Bluetooth feature is nothing but the advantage of getting Internet connection without using wires. It has to utilize the radio signals through GPRS to transfer files. This transmission of data needs a lot of battery charge and therefore you are supposed to deactivate the Bluetooth option when you do not use this feature for transmitting data through Internet. |
xxx8226; The brightness of screen is also a battery draining feature. When you have customized more level of brightness in your handset, it will consumes more battery power. It is recommended that to set optimum level of brightness for your mobile screen.
xxx8226; Avoid setting wallpapers and screen savers in your handsets. It has to consume power to display each time when you release the key lock in your mobile.
xxx8226; Reduce the ring tone volume. Optimum ring volume does not need more power.
xxx8226; Turn after adapter of Wi-Fi and 3G. Activate these options only when you want to use them.
