Default Battery Life

Please Login to Remove!

I noticed a difference in battery life once I got my data plan. During the "In-between" getting the data plan, the battery did not last NEARLY as long as it does now! Did/has anyone else notice this? I was just curious.

It lasts longer with the data plan than without? Maybe the constant searching for the network while it's not activated is draining on the battery.

There are many threads about battery life. Do a search in the forum. Be sure to check any 3rd party apps that have been installed. BBToday can drain battery life significantly if the settings are not adjusted. Other apps that poll for data can also drain the battery quicker. It happened to me wih BBToday, I uninstalled the app and the battery life went back to normal.
