LG enV Touch VX-11000
Is your phone getting very hot when charging and using.
I have charged the phone while it is both on and off with no difference noted.
I use about 900 minutes a month and go thru about 1000 text messages a month and have absolutely NO issues with the battery.
Things i do NOT use the "phone" for are the music player and the internet. I am always near a computer and use my music player. Perhaps folks that use those feature are the ones with battery issues, much like my $1500 laptop. A battery can only do so much 🙂
