Often takes a while to get used to the battery life on a new device - however a couple of phones ago I had a device that only *just* made it through one day, since then I have very happy with every phone I have used since.

I have used the phone this time since yesterday about 1800 hrs, couple calls texting, internet, doc viewing and mp3 playing and some today << not too much of all but the phone is still on 7 bars max, oh i changed the network to gsm as well, maybe the battery is starting to improve its duration.

If only it wasnt so bulky, am still undecided between this and the d600 samsung. The voice activation is mega !! changin profile bluetooth and ringing people with do like that bit..

I think the power consumer is the camera / video.

All you can do is switch the indicator off on the screen and the time it takes to update it

If you go into the Conn Manager it still shows which networks are in range
That is not true, you can stop it from searching for available WLANs in the WLAN settings screen (set show availability to 'Never') - if you don't do this it scans for new networks at a selected interval (e.g. 5 mins, specified in below box).

Also, if you do not intend on making 3G calls it is will help the battery life if you switch the phone mode to GSM, this will stop it searching for a 3G connection - which will save battery power, particularly if you are in an area with poor reception (e.g. if you are in an area with no GSM reception and dual mode is enabled the phone will attempt to establish a 3G connection, this will put a strain on the battery, even more so if there is no 3G connection available).
