Does anyone else with a 6275 have this problem? I get about 3-4 days max out of the phone before i have to recharge it. I send around 25 texts a day and thats about all i do with the phone. Maybe a call every week or so. Could the battery be shagged? The phones only about a month old.

4 days sounds about normal. If you get replies back, then thats 50 transmit/recieve sessions with the network a day, and around 30 seconds or so per text of backlight on (while composing and reading).

I have this phone - I get about 2.5 - 3.5 days, but i make a few more calls and a few less texts than you. I think its perfectly reasonable.

Things that help the life of your battery would be turning of the positioning (as we dont have Gps on 027) and also making sure that the bluetooth is switched off.  Also Movable screen savers deplete battery life as well.

Perfectly normal for that class of device, My 6234 (The GSM/UMTS equiv) is also no better with battery life, even on just 2g network.

Sitting idle in good coverage it's about 4 - 5 days

Mayhem: Things that help the life of your battery would be turning of the positioning (as we dont have Gps on 027) and also making sure that the bluetooth is switched off. Also Movable screen savers deplete battery life as well.

Clarification: Telecoms mobile network does not have GPS location functionality. A few Telecom handsets have full-blown personal GPS navigation/position systems (e.g. the 6275), and this works very well.

I also get 3 to 4 days from my 6275, which is an improvment from my 6265.
