    I've rooted my Charge and took care of a lot of the bloatware according to a list I found of safe-to-remove apps (which I can't find anymore). I just renamed the endings.

    Anyways, my battery continues to die after 7-8 hours, much of which is downtime while I'm at work and not using my phone. I've tried shutting off the mobile data because I figured it was draining the battery from constantly searching for signals (I don't get very good reception at work).

    Today I downloaded Advanced Task Killer to see if it knows something I don't. Every time I check, even within 5 minutes of killing the selected apps, I have a whole new list of apps popping up. The most common ones are:

    My Verizon Mobile
    Touch (I use it for texting with out of network people)
    Blogger
    Daily Briefing
    Clock
    Google+
    Maps
    Sportacular
    Facebook
    Facebook Messenger
    doubleTwist
    Email
    IM
    Words with Friends

    How can I stop these apps from always running in the background? They're things I use but I feel like they're what's killing my battery life. I go into the Program Monitor constantly to close active applications and clear the memory (I'm a novice so I don't know if I'm actually doing any good here).

    I'd appreciate any ideas anyone might share!

    Lots of those apps look like they would background sync. Go into settings accts & sync and change the interval in between syncs
