I do realize that everyone is probably going nuts playing with their new units and draining the battery life mad
but I figured we start a thread to get general battery usage times from owners. We could also come up with a format that's acceptable, I'll start with this but we can change it as we go.

that way when your phone sleeps the processor slows way down and doesnt use the battery as much
also if you meant when you sleep.....whenever you can.....use wi-fi and turn APN data off. That way the phone isnt searching for a cell tower constantly and using battery.
Hope this helps....PM questions

After going back and forth (did you try A, yes I did, did you try B, yes I did...), she finally gave the the number of their "dedicated Galaxy S phones voice support team at 1-877-EZ2GALAXY (1-877-392-4252)".
I called the dedicated team and was finally told that this is a known HANDSET ISSUE
, and to replace the phone.
I'm performing a full backup using Titanium Backup as I type this, then I'm going to do a NANDROID recovery (I think) and then reset the phone to factory settings. Then I'll replace the phone at the tmobile store I purchased it from.
