Turn off all "Push" notifications in settings. "Push" will check for updates to e-mail, messages, etc. constantly, running down the battery. Check every programs settings and turn "Push" off. Turn off everything in "Locations". Only use the "Push" settings and "Locations" settings when you really need them. The easiest way is to turn off "Notifications" and "Locations" in settings. And, yes, the battery will get somewhat better after a few charge/discharge cycles.

Yes, that's exactly what i did. i even closed all the running apps in the background by double tapping the home button etc. now i left my phone 10hrs in sleep mode and from 18% it went down to 12%. i think there's a little improvement? but when i turned it on with normal usage, in no less than 30 mins from 12% it went all the way down to 3%. is that normal too?:) tnx


10 hours off sleep and you lost 6% thats a little high should be 2-3% in that amount of time. Keep an eye on it maybe it will get better.

Try turning "WiFi", "3G" and "Cellular Data" off, when not using them.. If you have a low WiFi, 3G or Cellular Data signal, the phone will keep trying to connect by boosting the transmit power, thus draining the battery faster. You don't need WiFi, 3G or Cellular Data to make or receive calls. However, you may lose TXT messaging, not sure about that, as I don't use TXT messaging. If you don't need to receive calls while you are asleep, just put the phone in "Airplane" mode, that stops all outgoing transmissions including Phone calls, but be sure to take it out when you get up.

Just like Pocobear said, turn everything off that you dont need on at the time and this will show you a huge difference in the battery.

You won't lose texting. You'll lose the ability to send MMS, if you turn the 3G service off
