    I am a bit concerned about this battery, It's the same as in the wifes W580i and it's very poor.

    Sadly, I have one of these truly awful phones. I won't bang on about the phone having the crappiest keypad of any phone I have owned, but I do recognise the problem of the short battery life. My phone suffers from this whenever I have switched on the wi-fi. It seems that when I switch it off again, even though the phone tells me the wi-fi is off, it isn't! I have found the only answer is to do a master reset. If you do this remember, it deletes EVERYTHING THAT IS IN YOUR PHONE. I always put an old sim in the phone and remove the memory card. Though whether everything on the sim and card would be wiped I do not know. I prefer not to take the risk. Hope this helps... Ishy

    I use GPS and about 45 minutes worth takes 35% out the battery.
    Normal use however I get 4 or 5 days.

    At the end of the day we have 4 SE chargers so I keep one at work so charging isn't an issue.

    I have the same problem now - used to last a week on a full charge, now less than 24 hours. Anyone found out what it is?

    Master reset without deleting personal settings seems to have done the trick - wish me luck with the firmware upgrade next! Still an excellent phone, plus I now have a spare battery for it!
