    Could be the OS you are using. Even though it's the latest OS does not mean it's good. I have Verizon's latest official OS and my battery life is great on my 9930. Try going back a OS build.

    The processor shouldn't be the issue here as I'm getting hours of talk time on one charge a day. Bounce back to OS .254 and let us know if that helps. Another thing it could be is your signal in the area. If you don't have a strong steady signal it can put your phone's radio antenna into overdrive in trying to pick up the signal.

    I had that issue, which started after I inserted an "unallowed" SIM card. It did something to wikitude app. If you have that app, try uninstalling it, then re-install it. I know it sounds too easy, but that fized my phone.
    If you don't have wikitude try the same solution with BBM conected apps.
