    Poor Battery Life


    I use my phone as a work phone and make up to a hundred calls a day. I also send and read emails and surf the web. In short I hammer it.

    I'm afraid the only way my Bold can cope with this workload is if I switch off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G. If I don't. I'm looking at a dead battery soon after lunch.

    I was thinking of going back to my Curve, especially as Media Sync has stopped working.

    However everything else seems to run OK even without the bits and bobs, web speeds are acceptable, etc. I just wonder if I'm paying my mobile operator more because 3G is a more efficient service than 2G.

    I suppose I could walk around with a spare battery in my pocket all day but it doesn't feel like progress to me.
