And an update... have flashed the phone with stock Froyo (2.2) and a few mods. Details here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=773997
Hi all. Just wanted to share a smooth experience I had:
1. Bought the phone (no contract) from Black's Photography
2. Unlocked it (within hours) with a code purchased from cellunlock.net. Some other unlockers said the IMEI was too new and I'd have to wait for a code.
3. Within minutes of unlock, the phone was and is working well on Fido with voice/data.
Thinking about doing the same thing as you. Just wondering if you are running 3G on the phone? And is it working well or is it in and out between 3G and EDGE?
Good job man. One of the best phones available anywhere right now.
FIDO $56 Smart Plan: Unlimited nationwide talk, global messaging, 2GB data w/ BIS and LTE, value pack
WIND $40 Wish Plan: Unlimited nationwide talk, global messaging, unlimited data w/ BIS, call control

don't know what mods you have, but turning off as much background sync stuff as you don't need will help, and do NOT use a task killer. with Froyo i can go a typical day (YMMV, natch -- if you need BT and GPS on all the time, you're going to feel it) from 8:30am to 2am on a single charge. on Eclair i was only getting to about 10:30pm.

make sure you have all the sync's off, static background, lower brightness, GPS/wifi/bluetooth only on when you need it.
