    I, too, experienced some battery draining problems at first. Everything else worked fine, though.
    I'd get 8 hours of standby time and then it would need to be charged.

    Here's what I did to fix it:

    First, I did all the things Verizon and Motorola suggested like changing brightness, changing the timeout setting, don't use a lot of widgets, don't use live wallpaper, etc., but none of those ideas worked.

    Turns out I had an e-mail account that I'd get a lot of mail in, but didn't check very often. When I'd do a manual sync, it would spend a lot of time syncing, and then I'd need to stop it manually, because it wouldn't finish syncing. I changed the sync setting to 1 hour instead of every 15 minutes (I am using the pre-installed e-mail app). Then I went to a computer and deleted over 600 messages, emptied the trash and unsubscribed to as much mail as I could.

    In addition, I had 3 gmail accounts and I set the "Days of mail to sync" at 14 days in each of the three. Now my battery lasts two days, sometimes longer. It took a lot of experimenting/testing to figure it out, but I love Motorola products and knew it would be worth it to find what the real problem was. Just as a disclaimer, I don't work for Motorola or Google and am in no way affiliated with either one. Have had three Moto phones and love 'em, love 'em, love 'em. Hope this helps somebody out there in Android land.
