    I've been getting great battery life with the Q9c. Taking it off the charger at 7am, with a few phone calls a day, email automatically checked every 5 minutes, moderate browsing, I'm usually still at 3 bars when I get home at 8pm.

    Doesn't sound normal (although maybe you can be more descriptive than just saying "moderate surfing" - is that 4 hours or 30 minutes?).

    Have you loaded up a bunch of 3rd party programs? If no, then I would complain and get a replacement phone. If you have installed a lot of programs, my guess is that one of them isn't working properly, I'd start with a hard reset and run w/o any 3rd party programs for a day or two to get a baseline.

    If all your settings are stock you may want to try these 2 changes to help with battery life. 1.start>settings>F.connections>A.beam>uncheck recieve incoming beams. 2. start>settings>phone settings>C. network>change GPS to 911 only. Hope this helps, BOO

    I have had mine (9c) for a couple of days and the battery is so good that I am wondering when I am going to have to charge it. You must have a lemon.
