Battery Life

Shocked

I jsut boght the i770 and setup the phone with Active Sync. I currently have Active Sync setup to download messages as they come in,and switch to manual after 6:00 PM, similar to old Motorola Q phone. My problem is that I can not get a full work day out of the battery. I am very dissapointed.

I spoke to Samsung Tech Support and they said the battery or phone may need replaced. I pushed the tech on the issue and asked about how much time I could get out of the phone if I played music. She said the batery would die within 2 hours. If this is the case, what is the point with the phone?

I am wondering if anyone else any experience with the battery life or if you have any suggestions for how to setup the phone to allow me to stay in...

Get the extended battery. The Saga I was able to play with belonged to a salesman in a Verizon Wireless store. He said the phone MUST have the extended battery to really be usable and should have come with it standard. My 1st PDA phone back in 2003, the i700, came with both types of batteries in the box.

To improve the battery life:

1 - don't set it to synch as emails arrive, set it to some interval, the synch process drains the battery. Try at least an hour, I set it to 4hrs. It only takes a few seconds for it do send/recieve email on demand if you want to look at it in between

2 - If you have good coverage at home and work, turn off wifi and live off of the EVDO cell phone internet connection

3 - The phone keeps its internet connection active all the time, which drains power. You need to set it so that it disconnects the connection when not in use. Download the file
GPRS_1_Minute_Auto_Disconnect.CAB and install it. It can be found on this forum:

I meant, I made through a day with these tweaks and the regular battery.

One exception is watching video, doing that for an hour will drain the battery. A side issue is that the phone starts telling you battery power is low when its at 40% power, plenty of power but it still starts warning you. There is probably a way to change that but have not found it.

If you still want the extended battery, they are hard to find but I got one at www.mobilizenow.com.

clunker,

Where do I go

"To improve the battery life:

for the life of me I can not find that option.

Go to "Nessages" in Menu select "Settings". On the E-mail set-up screen select "Sen/Receive Schedule." Under "Automatic Send/Receive" you can select your interval.
