    8703e Battery.....

    Advertisement



    My battery sucks. I charge it all night long at least 8-10 hours and its full charge. I use email and AIM all day, along with phone. By 6:00pm-8:00pm its already almost dead. Is there a fix for this? Do I just have a defective battery?

    That jsut doesn't seem right. I've went three whole days using the phone normally, surfing the net, logging into Pinstack, sending SMS messages, etc. without charging and I still had more than a qtr battery left. Sounds like you may just have a defective battery.

    Interesting. I'll bring it back.

    What is the correct way of initially charging it when I get a new battery?

    Full charge before first use without being on charger is then only real thing needed with a Blackberry battery. But if you are on AIM all day, it's using your data pretty good. If your in a low signal area getting a new battery may not help much. But having a spare battery is always a good idea.

    What do you mean full charge without being on a charger? Doesnt it need to be on a charger in order to charge the battery?

    By the way they told me I need to call Data Technical Support to get a battery. The store doesn't stock them.

    By use without being on charger is don't try to make a call or Browse the network unless you are on the charger. The best method is to turn off the radio until the first charge is complete. BlackBerry Batteries normally come with a partial charge, so some people start using them immediatly.

    hope this explains
