Our house is 4G but then she uses WiFi here. Where she works is 3G.

I'll search around for some Epic optimizations, which makes them sound far
more important than they really are. :)

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
when she's at work. Right now we're working the assumption that it's the
WiFi. She doesn't have a WAP she can connect to when at work but there
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
off? It'd be good to automate that.
