battery life while playing mp3s?


Nov 5, 2006, 9:18 PM
i'm considering buying this phone, but would
like to know something about the experience of
those who have been using it for playing mp3s.

the reviews i've read list the "talk" and
"standby" battery life, all you need to know
about most phones. but what effect have you
seen on battery life when playing mp3s? if i
load the phone with podcasts and take it on a
six hour drive using the fm transmitter, will
i be able to make a phone call when i get to
my destination? will i be scrambling to find
an electrical outlet to recharge it for a few
hours? how does the speed of discharge when
listening to audio seem to compare to the
speed when making calls?

thanks for any insights you can share!

Hmm...6 hours? Well, here's how long mine lasted:

FM transmitter - 2 hours in car to destination
3 days two nights at destination (no cell service, but left phone on)
2 hours back home with FM transmitter on.

I made a few calls on the way...could have made a few more...but yes, I needed to charge when I got home (1 bar left I think).

Overall, this is the BEST phone I have had in terms of battery life!

thanks! i see that i can get a car lighter
power adapter for the phone, so i think i
should be all set for any trips i make!

Yeah, it seems that I need to charge every 3 days, sooner if I play music a lot, but it's pretty good considering I use this as my only phone (no land line).
