Default Battery for 7250

Please Login to Remove!

I got my BB about 3 weeks ago. It seems when I first got it, the battery lasted about 2-3 days. Now it last less than a day. TO be fair, Ive added VERICHAT but my question is this.....
Would being connected to the internet actually take up that much battery life? More than phone calls?
My other two partners have the same BB. I use the internet feature alot more than they do but they make alot more calls than I do so I figured that wold make our use even and theirs last 2-3 days.
Isnt the BB always connected to the internet?

Verichat uses an extreme amount of bandwidth because its multi socket, webmessenger is a little less brutal but using any always on IM clients will kill battery life. The BB isnt exactly "always connected" for email since its being pushed to you as it arrives.
