    Battery Dying?

    Advertisement



    Well, it's been about 2 weeks with the phone and everything has been great.. Since the 1st day I received the phone, I upgraded it from .144 to .152 and the battery HAD been doing me great... Since then I downloaded a few apps into the phone... BBtetris, google maps, and buzz me...

    2day I took the phone off the charger @ around 12PM... Had it with me and used it for MAYBE like 2 text's and a 2 minute call... and then Keylocked the fone from 1 to around 6... Come back to my phone having only 5% battery life... WTF just happened in between that time?

    I had the same problem with my first 8900. I would only make two calls and it would tell me it needed to be charged, I called tmo and they told me to go to a corporate store and exchange it. I was able to get a new one and since then (a week ago) I haven't had any problems with my battery. If your out of the return policy call tmo and ask them to send you a new battery. It will take a few days to get to you if you don't want to pay shipping, but at least you will have a new battery! Mine now last as long as my old 8320 did! Good luck!

    Don't hold your breath for a software update. Remember the 8320 did not get one officially from T-mo until maybe last month. T-mo is a great Carrier, but they are slow, slow, slow, on the OS upgrades.

    Until you get the software upggrade. Are your apps running in the background. I left google maps running on my bb and it took my battery down very fast for some reason. The icons you don't use just hide them. Little things make a big difference. Peace

    I make sure all apps are closed... I'll even do a battery pull b4 charging it, leave it on charge all night then get back to it and the battery still dies out

    Is it bad to leave the phone charging all night? can the battery develop a "memory"? Should i let the battery drain almost all the way down and then charge it ?

    I leave my phone charging all night. DON'T let it drain all the way down and charge it from being fully dead, though. Shortens the life of the battery from what I have heard.

    I heard the opposite that it is good to drain the battery. I like to do it once in awhile.

    Upgrade the os, don't worry about the batt developing a memory. Latest os is .168, and so far its been pretty good with batt life.

    I solved the problem of battery life completely.

    Get the Innocell and battery cover, along with the Innocase.

    The sleeper fuction works flawlessly and the 2600 battery keeps the phone charged for days. I power use my 8900 and get three days of use out of a charge.

    These are available here

    How do you go about using the 2600 battery (bigger) with the standard innocase ?
