Also see if your wife is using the 4G feature - that's another power eater, I believe. Especially if there are no towers for it nearby.

There are other optimization ideas out on the net - even Sprint has some for the Epic.

Along those lines my wife's Samsung Epic seems to drain a lot during the day

WAPs available. So the phone is apparently always trying to talk to the
available WAP. At home it connects to our WiFi no problems.

So for the moment I've told her to turn off WiFi when she gets to work&
turn it back on when she gets home. Not sure if she'll do it or not. If
she does then we should know in a few days if the battery "mystery" is

Is there an Android app that'll let us schedule hours for turning WiFi on&
off? It'd be good to automate that.
