On my phone when I have 3g or 4g on I get HORRIBLE battery life. Like 4hrs at max. I can practically watch the percentage go down (like 1% a minute)and the phone gets super hot. I have bumpcharged / calibrated like 10 times now.

On wifi its fine. Amazing even. I could go days with it. And its not like I have an app thats running. Android says its all the cell usage.

Im using CM7 rc1.5.2 and MR2.5, As I was typing this post I flashed MR2 to see if it helps.

Anyone have any other ideas? Thanks :)

When i look at the 3g status icon I see just about every 2 seconds it lights up real fast. It seems like maybe Some app might be using lots of data. But I can figure out what because the Battery Usage tool in spareparts never says anything is using it.

Iv switched to Chingys leaked radio and Isomons kernel and it seems to be better. Battery life isnt "Great" but it dosent get hot in my pocket (hotpocket lol) anymore.

I usually keep 4g off but turn it on when I need it. I think of it as an alternative to WiFi when there is no WiFi where as my mom ALWAYS wants 4g on because she claims "its a 4g phone so it should have 4g (I agree with this). But being as 4g is new I think the best option is to use it when needed.

Do you think using a Sense ROM would help? For me its definitely something wrong with the radio here. On WiFi I can go all day even while I set it to Never Sleep, but once I use data it is horrible.
