    Battery life for Storm2

    I had my Storm2 for a couple of days and the battery goes down fast. Yesterday I switched the battery out 3 times, last night I had 100% battery after switching battery and this morning I had 30% left. Any thoughts..The only things running are Phone, Youmail, Home screen, Browser, Smart Guard, Messages...

    Mine has been the complete opposite. Very strong battery life so far. The only extra app running in the background is BuzzMe.

    This may be that you did not charge it enough. These type of batteries require a strong 16-24 hour charge the first time you plug them in. Most people are so eager to play with the phone they don't do that so don't feel bad if you didn't. Give it a couple days of 16 hour charges and you should be experiencing great battery life on your new storm 2.

    Depends on how much time your using the device. Normally when the device is new we tend to constantly toy with it. If the battery life doesnt improve within a week, I would see about a replacement battery from VZ.

    With storm (1st and 2nd) I need to charge it mid day around 3-4pm. I charge it every night but use my phone a lot. I wish it could last me like curve ~2-3 days

    My battery life has been very good.. even with me using wifi at home.. mind you when i am done using it i turn the wifi off and then turn it back on when I am going to be on it again. I am fairly impressed with batt life so far.
