    Shortly after getting my 2004 Pruis, I also got a Nokia 6820 phone through ATT Wireless/Cingular. So I am now getting to the point of getting an "official upgrade." I like the 6820 except for the battery life. With bluetooth on a charge only lasts a couple of days, even though the phone was not used to make or receive calls.

    What are the experiences of PCers with bluetooth phones and the battery life?

    I have a Verizon e815. I use the BT only when I'm driving (don't own a BT headset) and activate the BT when I'm getting in. The charge lasts several days, but if it's a long trip, it doesn't last very long. Once we spent about 8 hours in the Prius and the phone needed to be charged after only a day.

    I have a Moto V557. I haven't noticed any difference in battery life with bluetooth.
