Constant data arrows killing battery
I hope this isn't something I've overlooked, but I have not found an answer. I have a Blackberry Curve that has the data arrows constantly going and its killing the battery life. Battery fully charged before leaving home is down 40% by the drive in. I have reloaded the latest OS from Verizon's website which wiped out all the apps on it. It is still constantly going. Signal is good, 2 bars 1XEV. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Look for something running in the background that must update a lot. IMs. Googletalk. Viigo set for rapid updates. Etc
by any chance are you using jivetalk?

This is very wierd. Honestly have you tried a backup and wiping the device.
I this sucks but try this first and then let us know. This usually fixes a lot of issues with peoples blackberrys.

Are you using multiple email addresses (ie One for work and one personal)? Did you have any difficulty setting up BES parameters? One last issue is your battery. Has it been tested? I know these questions seen simplistic but most issues I have seen boil down to being something so simple that we overlook it.
Yes, I wiped the device. Everything is on the BES, so I don't worry about that. In fact, that's my solution for all most everything. But it didn't work for this. As soon as I turned the wireless on after the wipe, the arrows started again and never stopped.
No, corporate email only. BES is maintained at another site, but no one else is having the same problems. Swapped battery out as well.
How is your signal strength? When I had VZW I had POOR signal at home and could kill a battery in 12 hours or less. Are you always searching for signal?
