    Mine is about the same, perhaps a little worse (it wasn't any better on stock though).
    You need to realize that on stock it reports in blocks of 25%, so even if you were on 83% it would report 100%. In my rom it reports in intervals of 1%, so you may think you are getting worse battery life but you are not. Its just giving you a more accurate reading

    The mute button/puzzle piece on incoming calls doesn't work...Just pointing it out. I was in a conference call and couldn't shut my phone off.

    25m 33s since unplugged and I am at 78% (75% used by display). Stock or Rooted, for the life of me, I can't figure out why I get such crappy battery life.

    I would do a system wipe and evaluate your apps. Also check lagfix

    Lagfix is on, and I've been debating a system wipe for a while now, it's got to be something.

    What is the best way to go about a wipe, I have my apps backed up on Titanium?

    I installed this Rom last nite, pretty cool and not bad, little slow and some buttons I do not like. I really dont like Touchwiz either... what can you do right?

    Well Im having Radio Issues, It is Constantly Dropping and fluctuating all over the place. Most of the time I dont even have 3g or a Network Connection. Any Ideas????

    I am a TB user who came to the Charge, But So far Im really not digging this phone like everyone is hyped about

    I came from a TB also, while I do like this phone better I will say the TB had better reception! A lot better. Not a deal breaker for me but in my house the TB would hold a 4G signal with 2 bars most of the time and sometimes drop to 3G sometimes or even 1X for a short time (few seconds to a min) but the charge bounces around on 3G/4G a lot and is mostly on 3G This is in my house only, it holds its connection just fine when I am out places with 4G. I will just use wifi when I am at home if it is an issue

    So you like the Charge over the TB?? Any Main reasons why???

    I Need a fast phone, doesnt lag, doesnt have reception issues or what not......

    I loved My iphone. Only reason I gave it up is Cuz APPLE Sucks and there customer service is ****! and when you purchase a product from Apple YOU STILL DONT OWN IT!!! But other than that, these Iphones destroy these Smartphones who are trying to Compete. Just wish that these other phone companies would step there game up and learn a thing or 2.

    TB was so much worse with connection,, plus it was a brick, heavy boring screen messed up messaging, rooting was a PITA..etc

    if you dont like the launcher use launcher pro , then go to prefrences>advanced>set the memory to high.

    i put all the service bloat back because people used alot of the features. if you dont like the rom you should try gummy charge

    I just updated to Altered Beast alpha 5, PBJT kernel with CWM 4.0.0.1, Voodoo Enabled! So far, so good So, this noob has a question:

    I updated from ABv4 to v5 with PBJT, and wiped data with the change. Before, on v4, I backed up apps and data with Titanium backup. Can I safely restore that data despite the change to PBJT kernel and v5?

    i perfer it much much more, it was like a sigh of relief. i could never get data with the TB i would go 5 mins at a time with no signal, and with the charge i never drop either 4g or 3g i have signal. but im sure it has alot to do with verizon still trying to get 4g to where it should be.

    That right there is a problem with the Charge in general. I had my first Charge for about 2 weeks before I warranty claim and I never made any hacks to it. It always dropped the data connection. This rom makes no difference for me. Still happens, and it's very freaking annoying! I think it has to do with Verizon putting up 4G near me. I bounce back and fourth all day and a lot of the times there's a 1-2 minute gap between switching. I hope they get it fixed soon.

    not blaming him, asking him for help , and asking if it did touch the radio. Maybe he can make a fix for us.

    I know the TB had 2 Radios, one for each, how come this fone does not?

    And is it better to have 2 radios?

    Honestly, I never use my radio so I feel 0 is just fine. lol And as for the ThunderBolt - Thought about it, laughed about it, forgot about it.

    Connectivity problems are definitely on the VZ side.
