    I'm not a texting maniac by any means but I am baffled why Messaging + Skype is my #1 battery drain(other then Display of course)? I never set up or ever used skype so why would Messaging use up so much of my battery?? Any ideas?

    Skype is INSIDE Messages now, as default you are logged in.

    Ahh ok, just went into Skype and signed out... Hopefully I'll see a change in battery life associated with messaging +Skype..
    Thank you Maurizio

    Mine was over 40% until I disconnected Skype. Now it is less than 1%. Big battery difference. I don't use Skype so no loss to me.
