It's probably time for a new phone or battery. 6 hours? Yikes. (Have to admit I am in the same place and I am just waiting for the next holiday sale ) Yes, roaming would drain the battery faster, but a regular phone would have still had plenty of life to make a difference. I would just power it down until I needed it if it was like my current phone. Unfortunately I have no idea what path Amanda took. She hasn't been specific on that. It sounds like she took the running path, but I really can't tell for sure. Obviously she parked at the hunting paths, but she easily could have just parked there and walked to the other path. Maybe there is a 3rd option?
