    Advertisement



    for whatever reason my battery has been barely holding a charge and it doesnt even last me the day. i think i may have a bad battery. if i can get an idea of how long you guys' batteries are lasting. that way if its a big diff i might go buy a new battery.

    thanks again

    I'm in the same boat you are. Pearl batteries are known to have issues so i am going with seidio's extended battery.http://www.seidioonline.com/index.as...ROD&ProdID=658

    looks as if they make one for the curve maybe that will help.

    My battery is down to around 60 - 70% by the end of a normal day. I recharge each night.

    I think it all depends- "normal" use varies

    My normal daily use includes some (but not heavy) messaging and talk time along with some media/music use and I rarely drop below 70% on battery life.

    I use it normally, a few calls, lots of email, some MMS, and the random normal web stuff. Usually Im at about 60-70 when I put it to bed at night. Havent had any issues except after marathon conference calls.

    charge your battery by USB and it should hold 3X's longer

    hmmm....i'm going to try that.

    I recharge my battery everynight, but I forgot the other night and was fine for two days without recharging.

    I'm at about 70% at the end of the day, I charge it at night while I'm sleeping.

    Kamel: oh man, I had the exact same issue when I bought my 8300. See the thread here...

    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com..._w_8300_a.html

    Basically to sum up everything...it was the cheapo 50cent noname piece-o-poo microSD card that I had installed. It seriously WORKED my poor little curve. The battery would get super hot, and just like yours, I couldnt keep the 8300 on for more than 4 hours. It would simply die. So I ask you, do you have a microSD card installed?

    I have a 4gb microsd- sandisk and with moderate utilization- extended network phone, music, web browsing, and a video while in transit, I have about 60% charge left when the day is finished. I charge every night.
