    Battery Life

    Advertisement



    So far I love my 8703e, but I haven't seen this great battery life everyone is talking about. Maybe I have been using it too much ;-)

    I got it up to 100%, made 2 or 3 short phone calls, had data on (BIS email), and battery was down to about 75%. Lasted about a day yesterday.

    Re: Battery Life

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i have a pearl. Is it supposed to take forever to charge? I charged it overnigt while I was sleeping and it was still missing a bar it wasn't 100% charged when I woke up. I mean it was charging for at least 8 hours! Also before I charged it it was missing just one bar. So I don't understand this! Help!

    What was it charged to, 95%? this is normal if you leave your phone on when charging. It will rock back and forth between 95% and 100% as the phone checks the network, it gets a message or a status change from one of your BB Messenger contacts. But your Battery life should be the same as if you disconnect at 100%.

    Hope this helps

    How long do you have it on a charger? Sometimes even though is shows x amount of battery life it needs at least an overnight charging. I love my 8703e battery life better than past phones (Treo 700wx, PPC 6700).

    Re: Battery Life

    of course depending on usage, ( I work as a 24/7 tech support for a sleep diagnostics company) so I get calls during business hours as well as throughout the night from technicians with maybe a max phone call 30 minutes, but I can do that talking long distance to family, then again my phone is maybe a month old. I can usually go 2-3 days without a charge and my phone services shut down when very low but not my bb desktop. But at night if I remember I keep it tied to a charger.

    Re: Battery Life

    Are there any extended battery life batteries for the pearl? Also is it normal to only use the pearl for about a day and then have to charge it up again?

    Thanks in advance,
