    Allowing the phone to automatically detect wireless networks my phone was draining to 15% in about 12 hours without ANY use what so ever.

    Thanks for that tip, I have turned off this function hoping to get more battery life.

    Sure thing. Let me know if that brings it within the normal range. I still have other issues with Gingerbread though.

    I can only scroll my programs in landscape mode otherwise nothing will open and each time I touch any it takes me to the top of my programs.

    Wi-Fi is faster than the 3G I get.

    I like the new keyboard. And one significant changes for me is the wifi reception. I got wifi at the work place, but the router is pretty far away. The wifi signal keep drop off and have to manually connect again, it never happens when I am at home. After I upgrade to GB, the wifi signal just keep connected all day.

    I'm guessing that the poster of that 4 day battery life only has his/her phone turned on for maybe 2 hours a day. :rofl3:
    Believe me it was on 24h/day.When i open my phone i leave it on until my battery dies.I still don't understand why some of you can't even do a day with a single charge.You must be on your phone continuously

    I get 2-3mbit on 3g most places...thats about the same speed as my DSL line at home. Many public hot spots around here seem a lot slower then 3g... but honestly even if they were 100times faster I doubt I would notice on a phone. Its not like that would help Pandora, and its not like Im a massive power gamer on my cell. For my use at least I see no advantage for >3mbit on the cell at this time...

    Anyone who spends 5-6 hours per day on facebook has much bigger problems than battery life.
    If someone actually were on facebook for 6 hours, they would have drained their battery and had to charge it at about the 4 hour mark. I think what goonieboy has said is that he has his data OFF all of the time. With that in mind his battery is still a little longer than what I'd get, but not more than about 15-20% more.
