Thanks for the prompt reply. Yesterday I got around to flashing 1.80 and while it seems at least as fast, battery life is nothing like 1.50 unfortunately. I'm using the same settings and programs as on 1.50. I haveone exchange activesync push, one imap account pulling every 2 hours and weather is set to update every hour. After a soft reset last night the battery dropped from 60% to 20% over night where 1.50 would usually drop 10% or less.
Any ideas what might be causing this?
