I dont work for Sprint, hell I despise Sprint, but I have to defend them from your ignorant rant. Yes, if you use numerous applications, leave your bluetooth on and use 4G data (2G drains slowly,3G moderately faster and 4G fastest) the battery will run out quickly.
Additionally, what they were nicely suggesting is when you are not using your bluetooth, turn it off so you can save battery life. (I cant believe I have to defend "turning things off saves battery life")

And why exactly do you customers lie about battery life saying ridiculous stuff like its last 30 minutes. We know it's a lie and you know it too. If you're not going to be truthful to us off the bat, why should they to you? Yet despite you, they were truthful in this situation. Seriously, just treat the person respectfully and dont make exagerrations and they will give you the right info. Once again, I hate Sprint and there claims of 4G are untrue (whole 'nother story) and still loses to the big guys 3G speed in the gross majority of areas, but everything the guy told you was correct.

Now can someone explain this for me please?

Why is it that that people only act this way with phones and phone company employees. If I had brake problems with my car and my tech said it looks like you are riding your brakes too hard and too use them sparingly, I dont get uppity and assume they are lying to me and huff "Hell the brakes are a critical part of the car! What is he talking about!!!" Well, let me tell you, he's talking about stuff that HE KNOWS, was TRAINED FOR, AND DEALS WITH EVERYDAY and YOU CAME IN FOR HIS ADVICE...
Bottom line is listen and be courteous, the majority of the time the expert is right and uppity-exaggerating customer, who doesn't know jack about phones or how they work, are wrong.
