BOLD 9700 BATTERY
I just purchased a brand new white 9700 from Rogers 3 days ago. After a full charge i'm down to 75% in a couple of hours. My daughter also has a 9700 and she's a much heavy user than I and at the end of the day she's at 75%. Should I take it back and get a new one? Thanks
Maybe not the whole unit, but at least have them look at the battery. I'm a heavy user also, and my 5-month old 9700 is still at 85% or 90% at the end of the day. One little trick you might try is to switch batteries with your daughter for a couple of days, then you can be sure if it's the battery that's causing the problem.

Turn off Bluetooth when you are not using it, too. The bluetooth radio uses battery when it is constantly "seeking" partners. The vast majority of the time you can just turn it off.
