battery life

I love this phone but the battery life sucks. I stopped gettin online and I turned of a lot of stuff thinkin it wud help but the battery still dies after the phone has been on for roughly 4.5 hrs. my LG dare wasn't a smart phone but I could browse the web anytime I wanted and make phone calls and still get at least 7 hrs worth of battery life. how can I improve battery life on this phone other than simply not turning it on at all b4 I get home near my charger?

USB Charging Issues

Does anyone else have this issue?

When charging via usb, the comptuer recgonizes the phone, and lets me know the device is plugged in. Now I dont want to install the drivers to this computer so it pops up the unknown device message. I close it and thats it. But when I simply move the phone a bit the message pops up agagin. This happens all thetime when I bearly move the phone. I'm thinking this could just be a simple usb issue, I have not done any troubleshooting on this just want to see anyonelse ideas outside of the obvious.

Manual Update to Android 2.1

Just in case you're still waiting for the OTA update to 2.1, here's a means of doing it early: ... »

This IS the official OTA release, albeit downloadable as a ZIP file. I'm in the process of doing it right now, and it seems to be working just fine. If the process appears to freeze up at any particular point (namely when deleting files), then BE PATIENT. It should resume shortly. I've been hearing that the process takes anywhere from ten to twenty minutes.

Favorite Widgets (or Apps with Widgets) from Android Market

Since the 2.1 update, I've been far more interested in using widgets. I figured that it'd be nice for everyone to share which widgets they happen to use on a regular basis, as well as describe what they're like. Also, give everyone else an idea as to which sizes the widgets are available in (width x height, in tiles).

Don't bother listing built-in widgets or the HTC widgets (including the ones that you need to download). Those are obvious.

Word of the Day (4x1) - Download from Android Market to get this widget. If you're into learning new words, then you'll get a kick out of this widget.

WxWidget (1x1, 2x2, 4x1) - Download The Weather Channel from Android Market to get this widget. The best feature that ...

My data plan if i get this

I have my 4th LG Dare which I have been notified requires the new $30 data plan. I have had problems with this device and the money hungry verizon employees said "well if u wait til february, u can upgrade to anything for $50 or less" etc....

I want the Eris but online it says i have to change my plan.

Is there anyway to bypass this?? or is there another GOOD touchscreen phone i can upgrade and not downgrade to?? i refuse to go back to buttons and phones with small screens
