    battery life is HORRIBLE

    Advertisement



    so I charged my phone yesterday, went up to 100%. Unplugged it around 2 AM, it's now 11 AM and it's in the red. I haven't even used it! I did 5 minutes of browsing and it took that much? is there something wrong here? I'm not very happy

    might need a new battery. and if your constantly using a rapid car charger this will likely kills the battery a lot quicker.

    Have you done an OS upgrade? Are you subscribed to a push service or something that might using the data connection even when you're not using the browser? Is Bluetooth on? Are you trying to activate to a BES? It is rare for a battery to be bad. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    i don't know if this will help or not but i had the same trouble with mine, after having the device replaced i noticed it did the same thing on the wall charger but if i plugged it up while i was on the pc it charged much better and stayed much longer

    bluetooth is off. I am running jivetalk, but it's set for idle after 2 minutes and I hardly use it anyways. I did upgrade to 4.2 and I have no idea what BES is

    trying that as we speak. I read a couple people saying the charge from the PC was better than the wall charger, which makes no sense to me

    the pc is a slower steady charge unlike the wall or car charger..also if u get a lot of emails then that could drain ur battery as well. I probably get close toa hundred emails a day

    Re: battery life is HORRIBLE

    sirry steveo that it didnt help mmuch but it might take one more time to charge thru the pc in order for the lithium batt to remember that it is being charged differently, but mine works much better with the pc charge it stays for almost 3 to 4 days rather than 3-4 hours. hope it gets better
