    Blackberry Outage and Battery Usage?

    Advertisement



    Has anyone else thought their battery went down faster during this outage? It might just be coincidence, but seems like my battery drain almost doubled. It's not like the drain was from getting too many emails During the outage my display was on "edge", not "EDGE".

    Yea it was probably trying to find a connection. It will sick a lot of juice if it has to keep searching for a network.

    did anyone notice the wireless signal on the phone being turned off by the network and turned back on within a minute or so? i assume this was by the network - because i sure wasn't doing it. happened at least 5 times this morning during the outage....

    I can't figure out how my post got put in Forums Home > Carriers & Networks > Networks & Other carriers .

    I thought I was putting it in Forums Home > RIM Device Discussions > Blackberry Pearl 8100 .

    Never ran into a downgrade on the battery, but signal did fluctuate a lot. If you were needing to , you could have turned off your wireless to save battery time.
