Youmail- Battery Killer
So I tried to follow all steps possible to get my battery to last longer. I tried and tried to get my "awake" time to go anywhere but 100%... Wasnt happening, phone wasnt sleeping so I was only getting 6 hours or so from my battery... Tried SMS fix, nothing, tried to turn off 3G, Wifi, BT and GPS, Nothing...
So fed up, today I removed all apps that I installed expect Youmail... Love the app! Now I remember back from the BB Storm days, Youmail is always on by default... So, I went ahead and killed youmail... BAM! 20% awake time! Battery went from 6 hours to so far 14 hours strait with still 20% left! Usage has been steady with text, calls and browsing the web...
So, Youmail= Battery killer....

I don't think you can disable auto download can you? Right now I have the app removed and set my account to send me text messages when a new message is received. Then ill just check it via saved bookmark in the browser.

I love YouMail (Smart Greeting is awesome) and haven't had any issue with battery life. I have it set to only download the audio if I decide I want to retrieve it. I subscribe to the transcription service, so I NEVER download the audio.

What if you go into the YouMail app - menu/ preferences / message settings / polling interval - and set that to "never" do you think that would increase battery performance with this app.
by the way, if you're worried about nOT getting a message of a new voice mail if you set the youmail preferences to never do "polling" -- you won't. There's also an option to check for messages "when I miss a call" -- when else would you want to check? I mean, we're all obsessive and have our Droid's in our hands or pockets 24 X 7. You should KNOW when a call was missed and a vm possibly left.
