It was discharging around 500mA now it around 100mA
I am dying to hear what was on the update, but it seems to fix a number of issues to include the data issue. It is a phenominal updat. ATT and Nokia came through.

I'm a new customer to ATT for the Lumia. I must say, it will be difficult to get me off Nokia now that they have shown such a huge improvement over what I had on TMobile and with the Dell Venue Por. Stephen Elop is going to have to seriously screw up to have me not purchase a full-price phone this fall as well when Windows Phone 8 comes out.

I was updated on Friday evening. My data connectivitiy issues are gone. Battery life - I agree - seems improved - (it wasn't shabby to begin with), and wifi discovery/connectivity better and faster.,
HOWEVER, I have had to power down 3 tims since Friday. There has been some sort of instability in the live tiles. For example I will touch Messages (text) and the tile will flicker but will not go to messaging. The power off does reset everything. This also happened with Outlook tile twice. This never occured all last week - got the phone on Monday. So far so good today. We will see.
Also my MajikMail app (the client for YOUMAIL) has shown some glitches-- relatively minor - since yesterday. Again, coincidence or new update???
The other note to folks - once you update numerous settings have to be redone. My exchange account was OK - but not the folders to be synchronized. My live tile layout and selections reverted pretty much (but not totally) back to factory state. My experience with updates or custom ROMs - this is to be expected. Just as long as you are aware.

Yes I will second that opinion that Zune does a great job getting things relatively close to the way they were.... much better than anything else I have done with any WP or Android that invovled a ROM reset!

I got my lumia 900 wednesday, loaded on the update friday night, but it hasn't helped my battery. It is still discharging at a rate of 10% per hour. I do have wifi turned on, so I'm going to try it with wifi off for a day and see what happens. any other suggestions? discharge rate was around 345 mA when I tested a few minutes ago with wifi on.
Getting 10 hours or less of battery time is just not good.
FYI - just tested with wifi off, and it drains around 100mA. So I guess the answer is leave wifi off unless I really need it.
