My bad. I should have stated that. I was on .167 because I returned my original Bold. I had .190 on the original, and though it was better than .167 in terms of battery life, it seems like .210 is better still. That, and my thumbnails are back on the pics I have stored in device memory! LOL
As far as letting AT&T know about the better battery life on the newer OS's, I'm sure they already know. I imagine RIM presents the newer version of the software to the carriers that sell the device, and they beta test to decide which ones they will officially release. Being that there have been people talking about bugs with .185 and .190 on this forum, I'm imagining that there are AT&T beta testers experiencing the same. From the sounds of it, AT&T is picky about releasing new software (look how long it took them to release 4.5 for the Curve), so that's probably why they're still on .167.

I have my screen brightness set at 40, and auto-dim turned off. That helped battery life out considerably, but turning off WiFi when not in use made it really noticeable. And that was when I was still on .167. I did have WiFi turned on for the entire two day period I spoke of above though. I'm now turning it off when not in use to see how much longer it will go.
