Re: battery runs down fast.
Hello there....well its quite simple...
how old is your phone ? i am assuming its an old phone so it is time to change the battery...you will see that batter is slightly puffed or out of shape ...in that case you should immediately change it
if its a new phone....then check if blue tooth is on or off....it should be off....and if you use the phone a lot then also the batter will run out in 3 hrs and 30 minutes of talk time...playing music as well as keeping the camera on for a long time will drain the batter
so it depends on how you use it ....if you have more question we will take it from there

"Test your Power Supply output with a meter and compare to the spec on the bottom of the laptop. If it is O.K. then follow the steps below!
Depending on how old the battery is you may need a new battery. The software install "Recovery Disk" has no bearing on the battery life! Go into Control Panel-Power Options-Meter and see if the battery is taking a charge first. Assuming it is charging let it get to 100% and see what is says for time such as 1.2hr. etc. The battery has a memory and if it is charged before it is totaly discharged it sets a new memory. This means that 100% becomes less and less operational time. If you see the battery is charging and reaches 100% very fast, then you have the situation I just outlined. To try to reset the battery to it's original state you need to run the battery down to "DEAD" zero charge. Next put the battery in a ziplock bag and seal it. Now put it in the freezer for 2 days after which remove it from the freezer and let it come to room temp. Re-install the battery and charge it oner night. Repeat the process above in the Control Panel to see the time associated with a full charge. This does work 90% of the time if the battery is still good. The cold sets the memory back to it's original state. Physics\Cemestry!!!!!
usually 8 hours is what is suggested when you get a new battery. i like to burn down the power on the battery completely till it turns the unit off, then let charge for 24 hours just to reset the battery correctly.
Have you tried recalibrating the battery? To do this you use the phone until it completely runs out of battery and switches itself off. Make sure it has completely run out by continuing to turn it back on until nothing happens except a red LED coming on. Then charge it while it's off until the green LED has been on for 2 hours. Hopefully this will improve your battery life.
How old is the battery? Have you let the battery run down completely and then fully charged it back up? Was the phone a display model when you purchased it, or was it in an unopened box? How fast does the battery run down? Have you checked the owner's manual to see how much talk-time you get out of the fully-charged battery? Let me know... Thank you and hope to hear form you soon.

Even if the battery is new, if it is not charged properly it can run down pretty fast. To reset the battery I recommend running the battery all the way down - charging the battery all the way back up to full - and then repeat. Also, make sure you do not charge the battery after it is full. Most phones or charge units have signals to tell you when the battery is fully charged. Do not charge the battery overnight.
These are the best ways to protect the life of a battery.
bad battery.. RMA that back to where you bought it from. probably wasnt a new battery they sold you. id charge it from completely dead to completely full one more time and if you dont get at least an hour out of the batt then i would return it..
