what am i doing wrong?! (yet another battery thread)

i have tried every hack, every radio, and every rom, and i am still getting craptastic battery life. wifi & bt are off, nothing is set to auto update, backlight is turned down, gps is off, ive uninstalled most of my programs in case one of them is the culprit, ive calibrated the damn battery over & over & over again, and i even exchanged the battery, all to no avail. i took it off the charger at 9:30 this morning, its now 2 and im getting low battery warnings. ive had 2 one-minute phone calls, maybe 50 texts, checked my email a few times & browsed the web for maybe 45 minutes via opera mini. i KNOW this cannot be normal, it used to be way better. even my 3000 mah battery gets sucked dry before the day is out.

i do not know what to do anymore. ive had to stop myself from hurling it against the wall many times now. im about to go back to my old m610 im so frustrated. im thinking about exchanging it cause i think my keyboard may be going bad anyway.

any ideas before it gets flushed down the toilet?

Are you running a custom ROM? Does this still occur after a hard reset?

Yeah, I'm on NFS right now. And I get the same life no matter what rom I use. I've tried disabling TF3D also & even underclocking it but it makes no difference. I'm about to call sprint & see if I can exchange it.

What's your build date? I had one of the originals and it was fine...I just had my exchanged through Ansurion (got a brand new one in box) and it works slightly better. It may just be your hardware, especially if you've tried new batteries and attempted to run stock.

Mine was made in February 09 I believe. I'm relocking as I type this, hopefully they'll exchange it for another one & HOPEFULLY it'll be better. It never fails- I ALWAYS get the dud, in any situation!!!

Re: what am i doing wrong?! (yet another battery thread)

OK so I went to the sprint store a while ago & the lady there just listened to my whining, nodded her head, and wordlessly ordered me a new one. I asked her if it would cost me anything & she laughed & said, somewhat sadly, "No, these are known issues!".

So we'll see when it comes in on friday if the 'known issues' persist. I wonder if they'll make me give my old phone back?

I stand corrected... I personally was never able to keep any of my PPCs when I was getting a replacement. Guess it depends on who u bring it to
