    Over the past few days my battery has been absolutely garbage. Last night my phone died in 4 hours just after sending a few texts, making three calls and checking twitter about 5 times.

    I noticed about every 10 seconds no matter if I am in an app or on the homepage with nothing open, both the up & down arrow show in the cell bars as its pulling data, but cannot figure out what app is causing this. I checked my battery use and is showing the large majority is display, but no way should my phone die in 4 hours.

    Anyway other ways to determine the cause?

    What are showing as currently running apps?

    Rebooted your phone to kill any out of control processes?

    Dropped your phone lately?

    Tried turning off location services?

    Rebooted your phone to kill any out of control processes? I've rebotted my phone 5X a day and even have tried battery pull...all weekend continues to die in 4-5 hours

    Dropped your phone lately? Yes, but no damage

    Tried turning off location services? Yes, not much help

    I stopped by the Sprint store and they said numerous people in Chicago are having a battery draining issue due to them replacing the network and wont be done until the end of summer. Anyone heard anything similar?

    May-Are you referring to an app? Could you clarify your post?

    Yes it is an app sorry for the confusion. It has a feature called app sucker and will let you know which apps or system resources that are using the battery the most

    Better Battery Stats will help you figure out which app is using battery and why.

    Google it to grab a free copy from the developer on XDA's forums.

    May-I downloaded the app & let it run for a few days...how can I help determine what is causing my battery to drain so quickly? Its down to 66% in 2 hours with minimal use. 55% of usage is from the screen...and 36% from apps (10.8% from android system, 4% from kernel)

    I can also confirm this to be the true. Some days my battery life is great. Next with the towers being updated it's in the drain. Oh well. Lets hope by Fall the network is back to moving decent data speeds.
