My experience matches this and it gives me hope that it is indeed possible to 
make the FR battery last longer. Typically, with about 10-15 mins of talking 
per day, I loose about one bar for 24 hrs! Sot that's about 3 to 4 days of 
battery life! But then sometimes (just sometimes) that it does not suspend 
automatically and battery drains rapidly. There is no way to manually suspend 
the FR (without the CLI) and reboot is the only way to set that straight. If 
you turn on wifi once, it appears that it does not really turn off ever until a 
reboot and again battery drains rapidly.

I find qtextended very usable as a daily phone; now only if it would default to 
headset instead of speaker phone when answering calls... :(
