Is it just my phone, or are P900 battiers simply that weak and die fast if you're on GPRS for say, 20-30 minute (max) .... seems stand-by is ok, but if I start using the phone, batty goes quick -- maybe I just have a weak batter? Can I upgrade to a stonger one? Thanks...

the battery life is pretty poor. i get 2 days max if i dont use the phone at all! ;)
it should improve a bit after a few full charges

I would suggest there is something wrong with your phones\batteries (probably you have some software installed that is killing it).
Yes, GPRS will drain the battery, it is a high power comms link (just disconnect if you are not using it. It only takes a split second to re-connect). I get the best part of four days on light useage (i.e. a few phone calls, half a dozen texts a day, check my e-mail several times a day, use the calendar, worldmate, adv english dictionary etc). If I start adding in games, Mp3 etc then it goes down to 2-3 days. But I always disable GPRS when i'm not using it and have the screen set to turn itself off after a few mins of inactivity.
Plus the signal strength is always full both at work and at home, which helps a lot!
