    Winterfang, I just wanted to let you know that I spoke with LG Canada this morning. The woman who I spoke with said this is not a known issue, which I highly doubt. Her recommendation is to contact the service provider to get a new battery if it still under warranty. I will try it and let you know if it actually helps.

    just go into a TELUS store and exchange it under warranty...... they can’t say no.

    all the people telling you its not a KNOW issue are FULL OF ****!! battery problems are 60% of ALL CELL PHONE PROBLEMS!! 30% being firmware and 20% being random INTERMITENT problems.

    if they give you a problem at he store, just tell them it’s a * INTERMITENT PROBLEM * and they DO NOT have a choice to repair/exchange it ( unless its physically or water damaged )

    problem solved.

    How do I know if my phone is still under warranty? I would love to get rid of this problem since I always end up without battery for my commute to home ( Yep happened today also ) and I have to walk quite a lot to my car, is pretty dangerous.

    Sign out of Windows Live Messenger and toggle Facebook chat off and see how that works.

    You sign out by setting your status to offline.

    Also it would help to know which third party also you have installed.

    Also make sure you don't allow the phone to send feedback or check for updates over your data connection.

    Set battery saver to trigger when the phone is low in power. During classes, hard toggle battery saver on, or airplane mode if that seems safe to you.

    If you aren't streaming a lot of stuff you can also disable the 3G.connection when you aren't actively using the phone.

    Don't leave WiFi on when you are.not j. Proximity to a wifi hotspots.

    Turning off location services will also save a lot not battery.

    I thing WP devices get rather bad battery life primarily due to the lack of a GPS toggle. It means most people leave that in 24/7.

    You bring some excellent points. I'm always offline on the messenger/facebook chat thankfully.

    I don't trust Battery saver mode I think it makes things worse, maybe I'm just crazy on that part. I'll set it up again

    I don't check for updates, I'll deativate the check for feedback option.

    Locations services? Will I be able to check in? I use that feature and also I have the option to know my place in case my phone get lost/stolen.

    I'll give it a try, thanks a lot.

    That's too bad.

    I had HORRIBLE battery life on my Arrive after I upgraded to Mango. A new battery didn't fix it (I didn't think it would have) but a phone reset DID fix the problem.

    Im not a social networker nor do I care about my phone knowing my location. (Is it really that hard for people to type in the city they live in while searching for things? I only turn on location when I need GPS)

    I also turn off Zune connection under Music & Video in settings. I also turn off Feedback under settings. I only use Wifi when I have to and I never use Bluetooth. I think I get better battery life with battery saver off too. because all the stuff battery saver does I have done already on my phone. So I think it doesn't have to constantly check the battery life which saves battery. Kindof ironic.

    Also I have found that having roaming on actually saves battery life too. I think the phone stays connected better when it knows it's getting the best signal possible instead of always searching for the best.

    I set all my emails to only update manually.

    Do all that and it should help!

    About fixing battery life, you cand find it on the next link on the MS site:

    Cell Phone Battery Life | Windows Phone 7 Battery Life | Increase Battery Life | Windows Phone 7

    After doing this you can have a decent 3 or 4 days of battery life (stand by) :)
