    Question Battery Drain - Just Recently started

    Help! Just got the phone 5 months ago. Battery life fine. 2 days ago my battery life started to drain - wouldn't even last 6 hours. Any reason for this occurance?
    Also - I tried to use a new battery and that is doing the same thing? Possible virus?

    Virus - no

    What have you installed recently?

    Any task managers or anything?

    Start synching social networking sites?

    Are you rooted or stock?

    If you don't know, it means you're stock.

    If you were stock my next question was going to be about signal as well. Have your usage habits changed at all?

    In all honesty, your device is not going to randomly start draining for no reason. There's a recent cause and we'll dig it up.

    My signal is fine and the usage didn't change. I even cleared my cookie and history.
    When I charge my phone it will state full but when I unplug it shows @60% full. Any reason for this?

    If you are charging your battery with the charger, just for grins, try using the computer to charge the battery.

    There may be something up with the charger?

    Also, check under Menu>settings>applications>Running Services to see what is running.
    I normally will kill all but the basics (Swype, my email service, alarm if using one, otherwise kill it, and Sync service).
    I do not use the social network stuff, Skype, any of the DRM stuff, and I'm not sure what else at the moment.
