    Most likely you will be able to find a clock that dims the screen so it is just barely visible. That's enough in a dark room and should minimize risk of burn in.

    My overall satisfaction level is high. Since 2.2 I have been getting pretty decent battery life - about 2 days. (But I don't typically spend hours on the phone.) I'm always finding cool apps and so...

    Check settings -> Battery manager -> usage statistics. It should tell you what apps are using up your battery. That said, usage statistics results in a force close for me. :(

    Yes. At one point I found that the hotspot app would just turn itself off for no reason I could see. This was within sight of a Verizon tower out in the country where the signals are strongest....
