    I'm using the 6515 and the battery is OK, will last at least 2-4 days - depending on how much I use the PDA side of things...

    Think for your case, the screen or some programs are running background. Do a check and see if your screen turns on without your knowing.

    Hi, r u using e extended battery or standard one?
    Dun mind if u can do this battery test?
    1) 'OFF' all transmitting functions(ie: phone & GPRS), or alternatively remove SIM card;
    2) 'OFF' bluetooth function;
    3) 'STOP' all running programs on PDA;
    4) take note of remaining battery charge(XX%);
    5) 'OFF' ur PDA;
    6) 'ON' after 1 day, take note of battery charge again. (It will deplete a certain amount: approx 5%-10%)

    Thanks!

    Since you didn't turn on anything, did the battery still drop as fast as before? Also did the battery feels hot?
