To start off, here is how to http://www.mydroidwo...droid-eris.html which is similar to HTC Droid Incredible...
Using my Incredible a lot, I have found a few things that have helped me....
1. Turn down screen brightness
2. Disable location, if not using maps, etc. I manually entered my city/state for weather.
3. From home, go to menu, settings, wireless networks, mobile network settings and uncheck "Enable always on mobile data" -- this one is a big battery hog. This will not disable your data....it will disable the data network when not in use...then when you have something coming, your data will be fine.
4. Use WiFi vs 3g whenever possible.
5. Many places say not to condition battery, but I still do. Can't hurt. To condition, let the battery fully drain until the phone turns off, then fully recharge. Repeat this process at least 3 times.
6. Set your email pull frequency to longer times vs short if you don't depend on emails.
Here is a weird fix, but has worked for quite a few people... Full credit goes to AndyAndroid at AC...
Hey everyone. I read earlier that the battery issue can be fixed by unplugging the phone turning it off and plugging it back in once off.
Unplugged the phone this morning at 8:30 am. (green indicator light)
Turned off and plugged in again 8:31. (red indicator light)
Green indicator light. Unplugged phone and turned on 8:52.
Turned off and plugged back in 8:53. (red indicator light back again)
Green indicator light. Unplugged and left for the day 9:13.
6:17pm 73% battery.
20 - emails
35 - texts
1hr - talk time
25min - web surfing
30min - watching How I Met Your Mother (ON CBS.COM!!!)
30min - Chatting on Google Chat
(NOTE THIS IS HOW I'VE USED THIS PHONE AS LONG AS I'VE OWNED IT AND TYPICALLY I'M AT ABOUT 35%. In my typical use I also usually switch from 3G to wifi when I'm at home or at school to conserve battery I did not do this today.)
