Default Sprint 8830 battery life

Please Login to Remove!

I've had my Sprint 8830 for a little over a week now, and was just wondering if anyone else finds the battery drains at an insane rate? I had a 7290 before this and could go a couple days without charging, but this 8830 needs to be charged at least once a day.

Any ides/suggestions?

My battery has been pretty solid on my sprint 8830. Do you have any apps that are running in the background with an EVDO connection?

I have Sprint 8830 and noticed that certain apps depleted my battery life significantly. Once I uninstalled battery life returned to normal. Also, by hitting "alt" and holding down the "escape" key, you can view all apps that are currently running. Make sure you go into the apps that you don't want running and select "close" from the menu.

If you are in an area where you are not getting a good signal you will also experience increased battery drain as it attempts to locate a good EVDO signal.

A-ha, I am betting it is the signal issue. Where my house is, I am almost always on digital roam. I will double check the apps, but I am betting that's it.

Thanks every one!
