    Post Battery Life Issues

    I've had my tour since it's day of release. And the battery life is horriable, i find myself having to charge the phone everynite. I leave my house by 7 with full attery, and I'm down to 45% by 3:30, just with lite texting, and one email. I traded the Storm for the Tour, and I guess I'm stuck with it for now. But I wish there are some tips or something? Or does anyone else have the same issue or Battery life problems in general? Is the Tour worth it, if it doesn't even last you?

    My battery life is outstanding with the Tour much much better than the Storm. So either it's an issue with your Tour or perhaps a defective battery. Either way you should bring it back to VZW an exchange it since you are within the first 30 days.

    i have bbweather fetching every 60 min,viigo every 2 hours, about 20 min voice. around 100 emails and countless bbm and about an hour of web surfing and general playing around with it. from 7am to 12am im at 30-40% with the tour

    when i had my storm with the same apps. my phone would be dead around 4-5 pm if i didnt charge it. so i would have to say the tour is a major improvement.
