    Smart phone battery's are shit. But the best app is 'power saver' by devz team or whatever. Works pretty well.

    Turn off 3g and 4g when you're not actually using it.

    It's called turning off data.

    Upgrade batteries. Stock batteries are shit that phone carriers give you. Mine lasted like barely 4-6 hours untouched. Now I charge about every other day with an extended battery from eBay. Wasn't even over $50.

    This.

    You can download apps that turns off data after it's been idle for however long you set it. You just don't receive your texts until you turn it on again.

    I have an HTC Lio. It had a shitty battery life. I turned off 3g when not in use and kept the brightness as low as possible. This easily increased the battery life by at least 50%

    Explain how people without data plans get texting then. They're on two separate radio bands pretty sure texting runs off of edge instead of 3g/4g.

    When my phone says 1X, I can't text. It has to say 3G or I get "Message failed, try again when signal is available?"

    Maybe the cause of that is shitty signal, not the lack of 3g.

    I can receive normal text messages but not picture messages. Kind of lame, can't download pictures off the wifi too, have to turn on my data to download the pictures from MMS without wasting 3MB a pop.
