i've heard that you should always "close" applications when you're done. just exiting out of the screen doesn't really close them and running apps eat up batt life. hit menu and then close to make sure they're actually closed.
also, when i'm in an area where i don't get any reception (which is freqent since i do a lot of camping), i turn off the RF signal (or whatever you want to call it... i don't have my phone in front of me and i don't recall exactly... but it's and icon on the main screen). i've heard that a phone trying to connect with a tower eats up batt life and if i'm somewhere where i know i'm not going to get any signal, but i want to use the phone (usually to listen to music) i just turn off the signal part.
i seem to get pretty good batt life this way.
