    Haven't really paid much attention until today...fully charged overnight, pulled it off at the dock at 6am....phone was shutting itself down at noon. I was in a poor reception area for a few hours, but I'm still pretty disappointed. My cell standby was 41%. I will need to look further into this, as I need a phone to last longer than 6 hours.

    I have noticed that my battrie got a little better after I shut off the GPS tracking. I was txting for a while today and it lasted good.

    I've had the phone since release day and I still honestly think the battery life improves a little every time I charge it. Just these last few days I've been getting 48+ hours out of the battery, and that has never happened before.



    It's definitely a shock the first few days of owning the Ally when it dies in like 6 hours, but it definitely improves.

    I'm really surprised but am about to hit 48 hours without recharging. I've texted, been on phone calls and checked emails. Not a lot of use, but use. I have tried to follow every recommendation I've read in terms of turning off GPS, bluetooth when not in use and turning off notifications for areas I dont need it. If I was more away from my desk then it would be more in use and die more quickly. I would say that this is pretty good now, but its also the first time, so we'll see if it lasts.

    Good advice in this thread; useful for new Ally owner. Many thanks.



    My Ally is doing some very strange things with regard to battery charging and battery life; not sure if others have seen this behavior:



    All night on the AC charger; this morning, the phone was only at 7% charge. Turning the phone off, and then on again seems to have solved this (now at 38% and climbing).



    Using Advanced Task Manager, I'm seeing:

    • Apps that I never use (Amazon MP3, Socialite, lge Dual Clock, other lge apps, others) showing up on the running apps list; re-appearing after being killed.
    • Services I never use (Bluetooth headset) showing up in running services (and I've got bluetooth is disabled).
    • GPS, Wifi, Bluetooth disabled; Sync enabled for Gmail.


    Not doing heavy network things; mostly email, some browsing (no Pandora or other streaming services).

    Not much in the way of custom apps: Using LauncherPro for desktop; K-9 for email; nothing else that should stress the battery.



    Wonder if others have seen this behavior, or you've got ideas for why/how to fix.



    Many thanks.

    I got my ally about 3 days ago. The first day heavy use testin it out. 2nd day I nade the mistake of leavibg GPS on all day and the battery was dead by 11am (completly dead). I charged it back up. Next day I drained it to 6% then plugged back in. Today I'm on a long car ride and so far my battery is doing a lot better.. also all of these days iv been using wifi thetering.



    Battery life and Android 2.2 are the only things bothering me about the ally.



    Actually all the posts I make to this forum are on my ally. Like this one.

    That's how battery life is going to be the first few days with a new Ally. Mine died within 5 or 6 hours every time I charged it and I thought I was going to hate this phone. It takes the battery a while to fully wake up. It gets better.

    I've tried all the workarounds and nothing was helping my battery problem. So, I paid the $45 for the extended battery, which I 've been using since yesterday evening. I had to get the extended battery cover for $5, too.



    I'm still seeing up to 97% time with no signal, in the battery usage setting. This morning, I started the day with a 100% charge and it's now 2:30 pm and the extended battery ks down to 38%. I've not used much of the heavy drains at all today, like Pandora or much web surfing.



    My signal strength indicator show no bars or one bar all day long, when I 'm at my desk at work. I'm in an office that is in the middle of the building and not near any windows. I wonder if this particular location is just not in a good place to receive a signal, and my poor phone is wasting all it's energy searching for a signal all day long.



    Any thoughts?
