Battery Life?


Feb 19, 2008, 7:06 PM
Just out of curiosity was wondering how often everyone has to charge their centro? Ive had mine for 5 days and Ive had to charge it everyday and one day twice just to be safe so it didnt die on my on the road.

I dont even use the phone that much except for the test messaging. I texted like crazy on my other phones and never had such poor battery life.

However this is my first smart phone so maybe its just something that happens to all smart phones and Im not used to it?

and download 'keyshades'. as well, if you link to the internet, and link out, cut the whole phone off and back on. otherwise you will stay connected to the internet and it will drain your battery even more. these three things will allow you to use your bvattery to its fullest potential, trust me...

How do I change the roaming preferences? I've been trying to figure that out. I like to have my phone on just the sprint network. I always changed my phones to just the network, no roaming. This one, can't figure it out. Help!?!
