You can greatly increase the battery life of a 3G phone by shutting off the WCDMA radio.

If the phone's network settings allow you to switch from Automatic to 850/1900 then you will greatly increase the phone's talk times.

Unless you are actually using data services or you have a need for the extra voice security of WCDMA, then you might want to think about switching the network settings.

In the case of the Motorola V9 that AT&T uses, the phone's talk time is about 4 hours with the WCDMA radio, but it leaps to about double that if you lock it to 850/1900 in a 3G area.
