Is it just me or is anyone noticing a very short battery life with the new firmware?

One of the big pluses of the Epix has been the battery life and now two days in a row the battery has gone low at around 5 pm after being fully charged at night.

Anyone else?

Since I updated 8 days ago, this happened to me once. I thought it may have been a new program (Microsoft myPhone and Microsoft Facebook), so I uninstalled those programs and haven't seen it again. However, there are theories on other message boards that it may be related to the GPS function - if you're having trouble getting locks, it may be causing a high current drain situation. Try soft rebooting and leaving all GPS-related functions off to see if the current drain persists.

On step 5, substep 9 of software update and received Port Create failed... on phone with Tech Support level 3 now...45 min total phone time...still waiting for level 3 tech...hanging up now to do other things. Try again later if I can't solve myself...

UPDATE: The procedure I'm following is at this URL: http://ars.samsung.com/customer/usa...557&PROD_SUB_ID=558&PROD_ID=1343&AT_ID=151653

UPDATE: Tried again and received same error: Port Create failed, (last line in event log was) KW.KIM Create(0)...Download failed!-PHONE. Cell is frozen showing Samsung name and progress bar. Going to call try tech support when I get back...

UPDATE: E-mailed Samsung using this form: https://forums.windowscentral.com/e...m%2Fus%2Finfo%2Fcontactus.html&token=mOpxW3YW

Seeing the same thing. Frustrating, as this was the best battery life I've had in a smartphone. I could easily get 2 to 2.5 days prior to this.

Same issue. Now I'm playing with a phone that has an updated PDA ROM and the old PHONE ROM. They don't seem to playing nicely together because I'm having more issues than I was before. Samsung update process is ridiculous, that's for sure.

UPDATE: Does anyone have an esitmated time for the install to finish? I disabled some missed Firewall settings, which got me farther than my last attempt. But, I've been at the ChangeUSB OK step for at least 15 min already.

UPDATE: Found my answer to my problem, which was the update got stuck at the event, ChangeUSB OK. Answer is at the first post of this thread: http://forums.wireless.att.com/cng/...thread.id=71058&view=by_date_ascending&page=1

what does this update fix?... it seems like it's pretty problematic but doesn't buy you anything. Is it worth trying to install? What's the FOTA?
