I am having issues with my batteries (2x) dying in about 3 hours each....and it has been very hot from the time i put it in the phone to when it dies. I have used a task killer to kill most activity on the phone. The phone has a good connection (its not looking for a tower). It seems to be data transfer-related as my phone had some problems with the data connection (not getting e-mail or connecting to the internet) this weekend and the battery lasted 2 days (plenty of calls). I solved the data connection issue by doing some updates, but not the phone is heating up again and the batteries are dying quickly. I can't figure out what is causing this issue and my phone is becoming a paperweight. Suggestions?
Have you tried searching the forum? There are numerous posts on battery tips...some are for the EVO but may also apply to the Hero since they use the same operating system.
