I recently purchased the att avail gophone, and am seeing that the battery is not lasting as long as the user's guide and online say it will. It might last about 5 hours, and I am not constantly using it. However, it does say that the battery should last up to 9 days on "idle"..what exactly is "idle mode" and how do I put my phone to it?
From the homescreen, press MENU --> Settings --> Location & Security. Turn off GPS which is a huge battery drain. You can come back to this same screen and turn GPS on when you actually need to use it.
