Removed Google voice - doubled battery life
I have been using the Evo since launch day. I never had any issues with battery life. Last week I installed a bunch of apps from the market and all of a sudden I couldn't make it beyond lunch with my battery. I uninstalled a bunch of apps and still had the same problems. Yesterday I got rid of Google voice and my battery immediately went back to normal.
Does anyone know of a google voice app that wont drain my battery? If not I'll just check from the web.

If what you uninstalled was Google Talk, you may find that you have issues with gmail push, as the two are connected, I believe (could be wrong, but when I FC talk, my mail doesn't arrive as fast)

Thanks for the post. I was wondering why my Evo started dieing out within like 4 or 5 hours and I remembered I installed Google Voice. Well, I removed it and its been off the charger for over 24 hours now and its at 70% with light use.

this has GOT to be because the inbox is syncing automatically (which I do not know what interval this happens at). I uninstalled Google Voice just to see if it made a difference and after 4 hours off the charger I am at the exact same battery level that I am EVERYDAY, which is about 85% with automatic sync turned OFF. I get really good battery life so I have no reason to complain, just wanted to see if it made any sort of difference to me...
On a side note, I am trying out the built-in Sprint visual voicemail and I think I might like it more than Google Voice anyway.... just can't archive messages, need to delete them.

Sorry I didn't take screen shots or anything. I'm just basing it on the fact that my battery life started to drop in a major way after Google voice was installed. Now that its off my battery is back to normal. I'm not dead by lunch time. Usage was the same throughout those days.
Didn't think this would cause a big ruckus. Just trying to help people out.
I don't know how often I had it set to sync.
