    battery drains fast

    Advertisement



    I don't know if it's the nature of the device or if it's a problem with it, but my 7100i won't even make it trhough a whole day. I'm at work for like 11 hours and I may send and recieve an e mail or two, a few instant messages between jobs, and a few phone calls on my breaks, but for the most part my phone is on standby. But by the end of the day it's on like 5% battery. Is there something wrong or is that just how the device is?

    Do you have Bluetooth enabled all day?

    Do you have an instant messaging program such as IM+ running?

    Mine drained constantly... its cause nextel constantly has to search for service and that runs down the battery...

    Both of those will drain your battery fairly quickly since they are doing a constant connection...

    I usually have yahoo and Bluetooth running all day on my 7130e but it doesn't normally drain the battery. I would keep an eye on that.

    Re: battery drains fast

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I had a 7100i with at least 5 applications running all day long. I know have the same battery in my 8703e and still allow the same applications to run and in both BB's I can get 2 full days of battery.

    I am a fairly large user of data. My knowledge of how to properly charge a battery and little secrets I've accumulated over time help me.

    I charge my BB for 2 hours a day. I have the BB shut off for a few hours in the late hours.

    There are many things you can do to enhance your battery time.
