    Droid X battery draining very quickly with little use + phone sometimes getting warm

    I spent several days trying to figure out why my Droid X was draining my battery so quickly, with little use and even overnight -- it had never done this before. It was also sometimes getting warm -- also something that I had never noticed before. I was unsuccessful in finding a direct answer from the internet, but I did get some ideas and kept fiddling until I was able to a solve the problem ! I basically did two things -- not sure if one or both got things back to normal, but I will list both of them. I noticed that from settings / battery and data manager / battery usage that Yahoo Messenger (which I sometimes use) had received a very high amount of Data -- even though I wasn't using it. I then opened Yahoo Messenger and realized that I was automatically signed in, but did not know it... so I signed out ! The second thing I did is that I went to settings / battery and data manager / data delivery and I turned the Background Data OFF (unchecked) ! After doing both of these things the battery time was back to normal, and phone never gets warm ... so I wanted to share my happiness in getting the battery drainage problem solved and hope this post may help someone else.

    I will have to try that. Although my X gets warm quite often, it doesnt get too warm, but when it does ive put it on me when I dont feel well to help with the pain and doscomfort. But it doesnt to too warm to have on me dont worry so it wont hurt me.

    I'll try that. I usually have to keep yahoo messenger on because I get my job hours posted that way but I'll try the settings thing. My phone drains so fast it is iediculous. I use 4 batteries and go through them all each day. I even have one extended and it doesn't last 4 hours. My batteries sometime are way below 70 over night just sitting there.
