    I was lucky to get that long with a 7650... N-gage seem to last two days in
    standby on a full charge though.

    Depends on usage. Surely it's not sitting in your pocket the entire time.

    Do you have Bluetooth or infra-red turned on all the time ?
    Turn them off.

    Do you have a screensaver installed? If yes, uninstall it!. Any
    screensaver other then the standard nokia one, drains your battery
    like crazy.

    I've also heard that having Bluetooth on permanently has a detrimental
    effect on the battery life!

    Chegs!

    In this wonderful newsgroup jacko at [email protected]
    exclaimed and announced the following:
    > i get 25 hours in stand by is this crap or my battery (2 months old)


    Its a lithium battery so won't suffer as bad as ni-cd's like in other phones
    if the charge is topped up daily. The battery has a built in circuit that
    prevents overcharge (because lithium is an unstable compound and can't be
    overcharged or the battery will blow) and won't suffer memory effect to the
    same degree as other non lithium batteries. However the battery will still
    eventually become useless. 2 months old is no way near the mark.

    The 6600 will drain the battery more if you have third party screensavers,
    apps that run in the background, bluetooth left on when not needed,
    downloading/uploading to the memory card with bluetooth/IR, etc. etc.

    So try to turn things off or uninstall them if the power drain is
    unacceptable. I think the battery performs well considering the use I give
    my phone. I'm forever taking pics/video, playing back funny vid clips and
    sounds to my mates and colleagues and then I use the phone a lot for
    sms/mms, oh and talking to people on too!

    I'd rather top the battery up every night when I got to bed (you won't
    over-charge it as mentioned above) than have it go flat when I need it. I
    turn my phone off overnight so even at 25 hours its gonna last 3 days on
    stand-by. My advice it to just charge it up every day if more than two
    battery level bars have disappeared, as I noticed those bars start to
    disappear slowly then a lot more quickly as the battery drains.

    So no, not crap, just the 6600 uses more power because its a smart-phone.
    Pity they couldn't fit a 1000mah battery in it though....

    Leaving the bluetooth on does has virtually no effect on the battery at all,
    the power used when it's not active is negligible. I leave mine on all the
    time and I never switch the phone off, it gets daily use and my battery
    lasts about 4 1/2 days on average.

    makes a big difference for me .. tho I must admit the phone usually lives
    within contact range of my PC with bluetooth .. perhaps being in range of
    other devices costs more power ..

    but there is a noticible difference in run time with and without bluetooth
    being active for me ..
