    OFF indicator

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    I get an 'OFF" indicator on the home screen whenever my battery is really low. Then I can't make any calls or receive calls when this happens. Is this normal? This is BB curve verizon 8330.

    Yes. The phone's radio turns off when the battery level drops to around 15% or less.

    If you consistantly run out of battery before you can get to a charger get a bigger battery!

    that one will really give you more battery life

    If you don't want to change the size of your curve there is another batter that will give you about 30% more batterlife with no increase in size.

    "I just read this discovery (it was new to me anyway!) that Ronen posted over at BerryReview. It turns out that OS4.5 does a better job of managing the way battery life is displayed on your BlackBerry.
    Think back to your BB usage... have you ever had a time where your battery indicator shows some juice left, but the device has decided that the Battery is too low for radio use?? I know it's happened to me dozens of times. But it seems with OS4.5 you can run the device with the radio on right to 0% remaining. Only at 0% does it kill the radio, and even then the device will still function as you seek out an outlet to recharge! AWESOME improvement. "

    Read that over at crackberry.com
