My Device: Torch
My Carrier: AT&T

Why doesn't my Torch stay charged

I am on my second Torch. AT&T replaced my first one because it wouldn't stay charged. I don't really use many apps, and have checked my Application Manager - nothing is running!  My OS is 6.0 Bundle 278 (whatever that means). 


I literally get maybe 2 hours of use, and that's with only one or two phone calls before it has to be charged again.  So, now as long as i'm at my desk, i have the charger plugged in, and I am forced to plug it in again all night.


Is there something else I should check, or should I try to get another replacement?  I am still within my 30 day of purchase.
