Last Friday, 16th - 09, I brought the Motorola Flipout from Telecom in Botany town centre. The lady said to let it fully charge before I use it, and I did so. Around about 11pm I started playing with the phone, ie. getting apps etc and customising it. Then the battery died as I expected. So I put it on charge and went to bed.
Woke up the next day and went to work around 9am and sent a few texts with Google Voice over 3G, played a couple of songs, called animal control once, all of those tasks lasted no longer than 5 mins each. I had a task killer too so I ended them all when I was done. Then around... 12pm the phone went to 5% warning so I shut it off incase I needed to make an emergency call or something.
And since then the battery life isnt lasting long at all. Charged it last night at about.... 6pm, its at 5% when i wake up this morning. Its on charge now and ill take the charger to school with me. I've turned brightness all the way down, wifi, gps, bluetooth are all off, mobile data is disabled by deletion of APN's and I have set it to use GSM only (Telecom XT phone brought for use on Vodafone, quite an awkward experience instore too) So I'll try not to text at all today and see if the standby time around 15.7 days like the Telecom site says this phone can do.
And advice on what to do to increase its life because there's no point having this phone if I can't use mobile internet and text etc...
