I've read all this and tried all the routine fixes described in Moto Droid troubleshooting. The bottom line is that I might improve my battery life if I turn off Bluetooth and location. I paid a lot of money for my Z Force Moto Droid in order to have the features. Turning off Bluetooth and location would greatly diminsh the value of the phone. I've had Droids for my last three or four phones, and the one I have now makes me very happy except for the battery drain. It might have lasted me another two years. However, I'm going to buy a new phone, and it won't be a Droid. I really feel for all the people, unlike me, whose finances are seriously strained by having to buy a new phone. And I won't give my old phone to the battered women's shelter because I wouldn't want a victim of dometic violence find the battery is dead during an emergency.
