CDMA Touch Pro Questions (many)

Okay, here goes. I'm totally 100% new to ALL of this, so bear with me.

I have a HTC Touch Pro on Bell Mobility, living in Newfoundland, Canada. I'm wondering a few things about my phone. I love it, but there's a couple issues I have.

1. Battery life. I know, you can flash new ROMs and radios but I'm not sure if I want to do either, being that they void the warrenty (I'm sure ROMs do, but do radios? & if so, I can't flash back to my Bell radio so I would not be doing that .. ) I'm a little hesitant of doing so. Right now my dbm levels are between -94 & -100 and I'm getting about 10-16 hours out of my battery before it hits the notification point. I'm not comfortable yet with registry edits, but maybe I would be if I got them thoroughly explained to me .. (also, do registry edits void your warrenty as well?)

& 2. Laggy-ness. I know, same solution, but same problem. Well .. I guess that I should've just had #1 .. oh well.

Help would be GREATLYGREATLYGREATLY appreciated!

i do feel for you bell guys. sucks not having the stock radio available to flash back to cause you are taking a chance that they might notice it incase you have to return it. And the radio is what makes the biggest impact on your signal. So, you can just take a chance and do it, or not.

The rom, on the other hand, you can flash away with that, cause you just have to flash the stock rom back on and relock it, and it will be back to stock.

registry edits do not void warranty

You can definitely flash back to your Bell radio and ROM. It's very easy once you learn how. Flashing a ROM will definitely improve battery life. If you still don't want to flash, you can always install nueClockcontrol. It will underclock your device a little bit and extend your battery life.
As for reg edits, a lot of reg edits can be done automatically by using pre-configured CABs. A quick forum search will help you with whatever edit you need

Just curious, can somebody copy or back up a radio? Somebody has to have the know-how around here somewhere!!
