    Well, after giving a second battery a shot & still only getting 4-5hrs of use VZW is sending me another Droid.

    Hopefully the new one will work better.

    Sorry to hear your already having to get a replacement. Hopefully this on will work out better.
    Seems to be better after removing the task manager app. But with the holiday weekend too, I am probably not using it as much. Figures!

    I'll have to take a look at ChompSMS but Handcent SMS is working just fine.

    3. Let battery drain 3 times completely, recharge for about 8 hours each time...

    People tried these and said they can get at least a full day out of their android phones.
    this sounds like some sort of phone voodoo !!!

    wish the droid was coming to the uk, i would be all over it.
    I thought it was just renamed is it not? (The name escapes me.)

    One & a *228 option 1 was good enough for me.

    That's right! Thank you for reminding.

    I have used handcent and its realt customizable. My brother is using chomp sms and likes it too. Try both out and see what works better.
