    Yes, send it back to At&t. I did and my new one has much better battery life. Tried everything on the old one. However, the new one has problems now - rear speaker does not work anymore so another new one is on the way.

    Well I got it from the Microsoft store hopefully they'll exchange it as well. I'm trying to send a screen shot but not sure how. Edge is using 40% battery in last 24 hours 55% when in use and 45% background (even when background is turned off) please tell me that's not normal.

    And If I do go to exchange what do I tell the store ?

    Did you try soft/hard reset?

    I soft reset all the time. I've done a hard reset a week after I got the phone in December. Might need yo hard reset it again. :/ .

    Now I don't know if I should exchange it. And even if I wanted to I wouldn't know what to say. Or just hard reset it.
