    I was driving all over UP in Michigan and had a lot of no coverage to coverage places for Verizon and was only seldomly turning my phone on. I had my battery dead in 4 hours with like 30 minutes of screen on time. Anybody else get significant drain of battery from the G4 trying to find service?

    When the phone doesn't have service it runs the transmitter at full power, so it's not surprising that it drained the battery fast. (Are there special models for Yupers, or do they just do without cellphones?)

    It doesn't matter what phone you have, if it struggles for coverage, or constantly switches, it will drain your battery.

    Agree, all my phones have drained fast in bad coverage areas. That's the beauty of the replaceable battery with the LG while the sealed back phones will shut down unless they're on a charger.

    For those of us who don't know - me, for example - UP is Upper Peninsula. Pictures in a Google search show it to be a beautiful part of the world.

    I once locked my G4 inside a water park locker (very thick door and wall) and the battery was drained in about 5 hours.
