    yo, got a question for phone crew. I recently moved from Wisconsin to the San Francisco area for a new job. My phone's battery (LG choc) turned to absolute shit in about a week or so of being here. Without exaggeration I'll get about 2-3 minutes of talk time on a full charge.

    Well it's time to get a new phone. We're currently on a family plan with verizon and I was wondering if the battery could have been pushed over the cliff on account of me being so far away from our "home area" in Wisconsin.

    I asked this to a verizon employee in store today and got a glorified "maybe" which fucking doesn't help me at all. Anyone know any solid info on this?

    thanks :hs:

    2-3 minutes of Talk Time?
    That's a defect, not anything associated with service.

    If you mean 2-3 HOURS of talk time I can understand the service being a problem. I know if I'm driving through a 3g area with less bars that there is a little more battery used.
