EPIC is epic... But the Battery is an EPIC FAIL

by beejmeister    Sep 5, 2010, 2:04 PM

I have to say that it sucks to walk into my local SPRINT store, where I know them as I've been doing business with them for 10 years or so, and, when I mentioned that I had a battery that was dying fast, have them ask me if I had my BT shut off.... Really? I have to disable a critical function of the phone in order to be able to use it? That makes NO SENSE!

Also. And I find this most laughable... everyone is saying to make sure that the 4G is off... So... Is it rude for me to notice the elephant in the room called SPRINT's advertising of 4G as the Second Coming, but also point out that we're being told not to use 4G?

The solutions out on all of the web sites is to add software that disables data communications when the phone screen is off, keep your BT off, Don't use 4G (WHATEVER you DO!), Watch how many apps you have that may use internet access....

WTF???!! Isn't this phone sold as being able to do all of this and that doing all of this is that great big reason to have this phone?

I guess they just don't say that you have only 30 minutes on a charge to do these things.... Sad
