Something's wrong with my diamond!!

I Have A HTC Diamond Stock Rom (CDMA) But the problem is my battery is pathetic..it only last barely over an hour at the most if i'm continually talking! And when it goes dead, i cant charge it and talk on it at the same time or send texts as it's not enough power to run..it basically just drains slower than normal instead of gaining.. It takes well over four hours to charge completely, and even then its dead after an hour or so of talking! I keep the backlight on the lowest settings...and i keep my bluetooth off. About 6-7months ago i got a new replacement phone, but they made me keep the original battery i had from my defective phone, so I dont know if its the battery or the actual phone. So what next?? Can Sprint give me a new battery for free ??Or should i get a whole new phone?? Would a new battery solve my problem??? I Just know that somethings not right here!!

if you have TEP you can get a new phone for free, talk time on a full charge should last longer than an hour (even on a diamond) if you have everythin running and streming and just drain the battery, you have to charge it for like 5 mins before you can start talking and stuff.

I'd stick wtih the cdma diamond, maybe get another battery online for it so you can just switch out a fully charged one when it runs out. (better than the stock 900mah)

Re: Sometimes wrong with my diamond!!

Flash a custom ROM...you'll see huge improvements.

Also make sure Beam is turned off.

Re: Sometimes wrong with my diamond!!

And for God's sake just use the standard font.

But search around for some of my threads regarding battery life. I would also flash a custom ROM like MightyROM 4 which is so stable and well running it isn't funny.

almost any rom you flash will get better battery life than stock. I think the best batter life I ever got was mysteryrom, although I had some bugs so flashed back to dareesboy (also pretty good batter life).
