Batteries

My new phone took more than five days to lose two of its three bars of charge, and that's being open far more than usual playing around and adding numbers. My old phone could barely last a day without needing another charge. I've heard that reacquiring a lost signal is a big part of phone battery life; perhaps the old one just sucked so much because of the crappy service, constantly trying to find a better tower.

I think a big chunk of battery life is lost if your phone continually switches from digital to analog mode when it loses all digital towers. But there's probably plenty of digital towers where you live.

Heh, you'd think that there would be adequate cell tower coverage here. (chuckle) (sigh)
