    I have the LG VX8100 and the standby time seems to be at the most 2 days.Is this normal? What can I do??? Should I look into getting a new phone even though my contract isn't up?

    How is your reception at home? Does your phone have a few bars when it's sitting on your dining table, or does it go "searching for service" a lot? When your phone is looking for a signal, it uses a lot of battery power, and I've heard of people in rural areas with poor reception having to charge their phones more frequently than people like me in a city with towers everywhere.

    Short of that possibility, I might start wondering if your battery had a problem, but I don't really have enough information to make that assumption. I know when I travel my battery will die in a day because of all the time spent jumping from sprint to roaming to analog to digital to searching etc...

    you have one of those flashing antennas right? this uses up your battery and it is reducing your signal even if it is just a little and that would make you more battery because like brad said it's searching for a strong signal.
    Can you hear me now?
