    New i760 User Battery Problems

    Today is only day 2 of my i760 and its 6pm and I have a low battery warning. I've done nothing but 5-6 phone calls and a few SMS messages, no internet usage or anything else. I have the extended battery on so whats going on? Is this typical? I'm coming from a blackberry so I'm not used to having to charge my battery everytime I'm stationary (ie Home, Work, Car, etc..) I'm used to being mobile. let me know if this is typical.

    AFAngryWarrior, Welcome to the i760 Forum! It is most likely the clock.
    Free Ram size on the I760?

    It should not drain down that quickly with such minimal use. Make sure you have wifi turned off if you are not using wifi. Leaving it on, sucks down the battery.

    You may find that the battery guage is not calibrated, ie the battery thinks it is low, but really isn't.

    First thing you should do is set your phone to NOT turn off and let the battery drain completely. If my suspicion is correct then your phone will stay on for several hours more. Once it is completely drained then charge it fully. After that the guage will be reset.

    ramiss, Your correct. I had charged mine overnight and then ran it dry then recharged it to set the meter correct and cycle the battery fully. I did both batteries the same way.

    Start -> Settings -> System tab -> Power

    On the Advanced tab uncheck 'Turn off device if not used for' checkbox.

    You can also go into the Backlight screen on the System tab and uncheck the 'Turn off backlight if device if not used for' setting as well. Keep that screen nice and bright and your battery should drain pretty fast.
