Hopefully somebody can give me a hand here. My battery is draining crazy fast. I have to fully charge it 3 times a day. It goes dead in about 3 hours without even using it. I don't have to touch it, go back to it after a few hours and it's dead. I just had the battery replaced under warranty, but this obviously didn't fix it. I am not using a live wallpaper. I don't have any apps running in the background. I use the task manager to shut the apps down. Phone is only 2 months old. It's really frustrating!!!

Ok lets check for some battery culprits. Altho 3 hours is a little too much with screen off.
First of all delete that task killer. Trust me the builtin one works amazingly good
instead of the task killer use OCLF to change the policy to strict. Second tell me what u have on autosync
the more u have on push the more pressure u put on ur 2g-3g and that sure sucks up batt fast.
Bluetooth? Wifi? Only switch on when needed
Those small things changed my batt life around a lot
if all this didnt help. I would recommend a fresh flash of the FW ur using and make sure.to delete the battery stats
a little batt recalbration also helps with that 100% issue

if all this didnt help.  U my friend have a faulty phone
old usage on my phone batt would last half a day but now i reach midnight with 50% left

If you're using social hub it may be messing up right now. I have to keep logging in and when that happens the battery drains very quickly - 25% in an hour.

I've turned auto-sync off on all the applications that I don't need it for. I've also turned my screen brightness to the lowest setting with a timeout of 30seconds. I should know in a few hours if all this helped or not. I did delete advanced task killer, it seemed like a bit of a dud.

The other weird thing it's doing (my wife has the same phone with no issues), is on facebook. When I'm at the screen that allows u to choose from the 6 options such as chat, photos, news feed etc...when I'm not on wi-fi it says "cannot retrieve notifications at this time, network reset by peer. Try again later". Any idea what this is all about? I've removed facebook and re-installed but it still does it. My wife's SGS doesn't do this. Maybe I'm just not meant to have a smartphone, lol. Back to the old Motorolar Razr maybe?? (God I hope not)

u sure u have the updated facebook app? anyways that error usually poped up with me when my 2g was on and 3g was off , a few refreshes actually worked but with 3g i hardly see that error. is this the samsung facebook S app or the one on the android market?
i remember the samsung app had a lot of errors, stay away from it

It's the facebook for Android app. I think my 3G is turned on, I'm assuming that is in the settings somewhere. I'll have a look
