This is about what my wife gets on her Storm2, and that is without too much wifi usage. What OS are you running?

That is not a possible option on the Storm 2 (or even the Storm for that matter).

number in the format of X.X.X.XXX
NOT (X.X.X.XXX)

i.e. the first number, not the number in brackets.

Moved to a more appropriate section.

One day isn't that bad. Battery life really depends on how you use it - calls, WiFi, bluetooth, surfing, etc. More use, more battery required. Also, if you are in a 3G fringe area and the device is searching to keep a 3G signal, that requires more battery.

This might help: Maximum Battery Life - BlackBerryFAQ

CDMA drains batteries faster than GSM due to the nature of the beast. On the other hand my S2 will work inside of buildings when friends/coworkers GSM phones do not always.

I charge my phone everyday.
