Default Battery Usage on .113

Please Login to Remove!

I have the 9530 with .113. I have had it for about a month or more and it seems to be draining the battery really fast. Is anyone else expierencing these issues and if so is it worth just upgrading to .122?

I use OS .113 also and I was experiencing a fast battery drain, then narrowed it down to the signal. At my work I can blow through my battery in about 10hrs cause I get a very week signal and it sometimes even goes into roam. When I am at my house or around the city I live in, my battery will last all day and only lose 1 bar on the battery.

Maybe my experience will help? All I know is that I have been using OS .113 for about 2 months (on 2 different storms cause my 1st one broke) and never had a battery problem. Then I recently switched jobs and started having the problem and that is when I happen to notice my signal strength.
