Post your typical battery life please.
I am curious to know what the typical battery life on your Sensations.
I'm getting roughly 12 hours. T-mobile states I should be getting 3G/3G+(4G), but I am only getting 2G. I believe the constant search for 4G contributes to the battery loss.
How are your devices?

But my battery life about where everyone else is at. Started at 100% charge this morning at 8AM and now I'm at 63% at 7:30. Keep in mind, I didn't use my phone often today since I worked. Here is my battery use log:
Cell standby: 18%
Phone idle: 15%
Voice calls: 5%
Android system: 2%

Ok, is anyone else getting both your WIFI & Mobile Network indicators on the top of your devices?
My Nexus One never showed both at the same time, unless there was a data connection issue. I have great connection and can browse, but both indicators are on and both show up on top.

Getting around 30-40% left at the end of the day. Greatbatterylife compared to some past phones (G2).
Also, to the OP, there is no 'searching for 4g'. Tmo's 4g is simply super enhanced 3g. You either have it or you don't. Your phone will probably never display the 3g icon.

So what are the fixes to those of you who might be suffering from data connectivity issues?What exactly does step 3 do?

1. The SIM card: If you are using a 2G SIM, perhaps the one you had before you purchased your Sensation 4G then this is a likely culprit and should be swapped out at your local T-Mobile store for a 3G/4G SIM. Your best best is just replace it with the SIM that came in the box.
2. Ensuring that your data plan is properly provisioned with a 4G data plan. Customers who are on grandfathered plans, blackberry plans etc should make sure your Data SOC is on a 4G plan.
3. If the above problems dont work (and they should) the last resort is to do a little tinkering around by dialing: *#*#4636#*#* and then press Phone Information > Toggle Ciphering to OFF > Turn off Radio > Turn on Radio > Toggle Ciphoring to ON.
I'm going to give this a try and see what happens....
Also wondering if live wall papers and other widgets (weather) have anything to do with degraded battery performance?
