    9700 Battery Life Revisited

    Advertisement



    Yesterday - Multiple phone calls, several SMS messages, lots of PIM usage (calendar, Word To Go, etc), about 2 hours internet over Wi-Fi (mostly watching and listening to guitarist Tommy Emmanuel on YouTube), took about 20 pictures of an "incident" at work. At 10pm, battery still at 85% - - I could get used to this!

    Mark, I've Already got used to "THIS" - anything else is just a mirage. It's a work horse. Refined, of course, but a real cart puller...
    Just to strike the envy chord in you, I just placed the order for the Pearl 9100 (arrived in the UK and it should be in my hands in 14 days ). And they say the battery on this one goes on forever...

    Ok, that must be what is wrong with my refurb 9700...my battery doesn't seem to last as long as everyone else's. It is better than my Curve, don't get me wrong, but if I did all that Mark did, I would be around 55% to 65% probably.

    I really need to "test" my battery. I will charge it tonight then "test" tomorrow.

    I am at 95% already...it was fully charged 2 1/2 hrs ago. I have received 5 emails, sent 1 text, and talked maybe 20 mins. It is on silent, WiFi is off...only apps running via alt back key: Visual Voicemail, Browser, HomeScreen, Messages, Call Log, Blackberry Messenger...which they are always listed correct? I always use Menu Close.

    Is that normal?

    I don't live near a 3G area so I stay on EDGE. I am still at 95% so that is good. Maybe the first 5% drains quickly...lol.

    Yes, the first 5% seems to drain faster for some reason, then it seems to stay on 85% for 8 hrs! If they do make a better Berry, I'm going to have to have some serious hands on time to believe it.

    Big Plus One on that one - - A year from now we may be talking about the 9700 as "the first of the good BlackBerrys" and "It was wonderful - IN ITS TIME" . I'm like Delfim, got my baby blues on the 9100 Pearl - mebbe - mebbe not - mebbe - mebbe not

    I hope you guys are right. 512mb memory would be insane. Im looking for OS6 to be a knockout, for me as well as RIM.
