    Default H.TC. Wildfire = Android = Battery ???

    As the title says , i have an h.t.c. wildfire mobile phone ,

    i just got it last november 2010 ,

    so had it about ten months ,

    the battery has suddenly started running out quickly , in less than a day , even on stand by with very little or no use ,

    i have switched off all apps i don't need and turned off blue tooth etc .

    As the battery goes from green to yellow ( low level ) , it gives me the choice of seeing the breakdown of how the battery was used .

    The majority of items is 3 to 7 percentage ,

    but the standby percentage is about 37 % ,

    and the idle percentage is very similar at about 35 % .

    Please can you tell me the difference between idle and standby ?

    i thought standby is just like having it in your pocket or on the table ,

    but what is idle ?

    i used to have the older h.t.c. G1 and i know that had battery problems , but i thought they had fixed the battery problem with the newer phones ,

    Thank You For Any Replies .

    Unless you have a high time without signal. Then you will see Cell Standby go higher than Phone Idle, and your battery life will go through the floor. If your TWOS is ridiculous ( like 40 percent ) and you aren't just in a poor reception area: You may have managed to switch your radio band to GSM.

    To fix this, dial the number: *#*#4636#*#*
    It should immediately change screens. Select Phone Information ( If it isn't there, back out until you get there. ) Scroll down to the bottom, and the top dropdown menu should say either CDMA auto (PRL) or GSM auto (PRL).

    If it says CDMA auto (PRL) make sure that you really are getting higher TWOS than you should be. If you are sure, or definately if you see GSM, press Menu -> Select Radio Band. It will come up and ask you to Force Close ( this is normal. ) When this happens, scroll back down, and you should see the GSM auto (PRL) now change that to CDMA auto (PRL) and exit out.

    Now plug the phone in to USB ( or power ) for a couple seconds and remove it. ( This is resetting the counters. ) Give the phone a few mins at least, if not half an hour. Now check for your time without signal again. It should be only a couple percent, if it shows at all. If you no longer see a "Time without signal" that means it is 0%. You should now be good to go. ( If not, go back and try changing the band again, if you still have a problem...you are almost surely really having a signal problem. )

    use phone till it dies, then plug in and do not use for a full charge
    resets battery, was one of the biggest calls in when i worked in mobile phone complaints.

    If you plug phone in for 20 mins here there and everywhere it thinks
    "oh, ive been unplugged, i must be full"
    so its hows full and then runs out quick

    by letting it completely power down and then reset its self and fully charge it will give a much better performance

    true story !

    What is the os version of your phone and will you pls mention the type of your usage? Actually ppl criticize only htc phones for providing poor batteries but in reality all the android based phones in the market show up battery problems to some extents. While some of the android phones wont show up coz their high end hardware suppresses their battery issues. But in comparison to expensive phones with high quality hadware, htc wildfire with moderate hardware is not at all bad to show minor battery issues as mentioned above by HITFACTORY1403.

    Well i dont mean to say, greater the hardware quality, less is the battery drainage, but various factors like type of usage and os version play an important role too in battery drainage. Android os factors includes its inability to terminate unnecessary apps and services in the background which easily juices up maximum battery unnecessarily hence it becomes necessary to upgrade phone's os version through update. I am using wildfire too and yes i have faced this battery issues previously but after upgrading my os version to froyo, the battery issues got reduced.

    So HITFACTORY1403 if it is possible just update you OS version through an update and here's the other option if you don't wish to upgrade you phone's version then just download an app called juice defendor from app market and install it. This little app will help you to manage various apps and their processes and will help you terminate desired services and programs from running in background those which hog up battery unnecessarily at your will. I hope this will sort those battery problems you have mentioned above.
