    I saw this on another site so im gonna give it a try. To improve battery life: settings>wireless&networks>mobile networks>Enable always-on data>uncheck

    what this does is disable your 3g network, supposedly you wont be able to recieve gmail or any push mails however as the title says Im going to run this throughout the week and see what my results are. If anyone else would like to test this out feel free and post here if you see any difference in your phone.

    i would have to agree that this probably saves battery as its eliminating emails and all data access restricting lots of programs so yea probably does work

    Any update on how this panned out? Did you leave that option unchecked or did you turn it back on? I've seen this mentioned before but didn't know if it really worked or not...

    I also bump charge, almost daily. When I first started doing it a few weeks ago it really seemed to help. Now, not so much... :(

    Do you have the Seidio 1750 extended? I keep reading/hearing mixed reviews. Some (like n99hockey) say they do notice about 30% more batt life.. others say they do not. I'm going to get it anyway b/c I don't want to add any bulk to the device I just hope it really adds more life to my battery
