Recently found myself in the same situation. Attempting the OS upgrade now. I used to get, perhaps, 2 days out of my battery. My normal use includes Gmail app, BB messenger, texting, minimal phone calls, minimal web surfing, wifi on sometimes, GPS usually off, screen bright set to only 10, Bluetooth NEVER ON, etc. etc.
In the last week, my battery life cut in half. Thought it was the battery. Bought 2 new ones. Same result, typical battery life is still half of what it used to be just days/weeks ago. WTF?
Very suspicious..... I think right around the time my battery issue started was right around the time I added International service and coverage to my Plan via ATT. Just suspicious.
Trying the OS upgrade now. Currently on OEM boxed v.167
