    I'd say you either have a rogue app sucking your batt down or a bum phone.

    Actually just did a factory reset based on vzwsupport recommendation. The times I reported was 2 days after reset.
    I would let it sit before you start installing all the apps back. Maybe just some important ones for now. If you go 2 days and its all fine and dandy, heck or even 1 day, then one of those apps you had was draining the battery bad.

    Just got the Charge yesterday and Im totally satisified with it for what I paid for it. I wouldve even paid more. Its a great phone. Reminds me of the Infuse I had with the beautiful Super Amoled Screen.

    Rooted it, Installed the latest GB Leak 2.3.6 and Im amazed by these blazing LTE speeds, God im in love.

    Also, When I called Verizon to activate the LTE chip for my phone, they said since there is a promotion for customers that buy an LTE handset, they get 4GB a month for the price of 2GB a month. So they threw 2GB a month onto my already 2GB I had for the BlackBerry for free. Now I can rock out with 4GB as long as I stick with them. Thats a really good deal, I appreciate them hooking me up! Verizon is the BOMB!

    You get spoiled with 4g. When I leave my 4g area, and revert to 3g, I just bum out and suffer. :-/
    It's faster than my cable wifi, so I just use 4g and live with the battery drain. ;-)

    Terrigno, hold the back button and press the home button. Allows you to take screenshots, baked into stock by Samsung. 4G is insane, I have seen as much as 35Mb down and 12Mb up. That is 3x my cable speed down and 24x their upload!

    I've had my Charge for about 3 months now and (knock on wood) have not had any real issues with it. Battery life has been pretty decent. So far to date, I've only had the phone freeze up once on me. Everything runs quick and smooth. Still waiting on the Gingerbread update though Only way I'll get rid of this phone is if the Prime comes out and it's better
