What is the expected battery wear rate?
My battery seems to be deteriorating fast... in the last week I seem to have to have it connected to the car charger much more frequently. Is this a problem with 2.0.1 or is my battery dying?

does the GSM/3g modem ramp UP its power like the CDMA Search & Destroy feature... that is, when the CDMA modem has very poor carrier signal, it ramps up as high as it can go, until it finds a suitable signal level (translation, phone gets really hot, and batter goes bye bye).

edge/3g, not sure, i'll keep a mind on it... it WAS in a case, and now is naked, but after a early morning session at my job, in which the building is a RF black hole, i was at 1 bar with the 3g indicator... after 6 hrs there, the phone was quite warm...
With the above, if I take my phone off the charger at 7:00AM, by about 3:00PM I have to connect to a charger due to 20% warning. I used to be able to up to about 6-7:00PM with heavier use. Today, after the 2.0.2 FW flash, my phone seems to be draining even faster.

pre-post pictures from 2.0.1 and 2.0.2, both 3g, the only variable is how much i was in 2g or 3g areas...
in the second pic with 14 hours of standby time is the FIRST time i was able to make it thru a day at work 12 hrs + 1hr commute x2... without charging... granted, i had the 20% warning, and the 10% warning...
