    Battery issue, Blackberry pearl 8100

    Advertisement



    I am having an issue with my pearl's battery. The first time I charged
    the phone, the battery lasted for over 4 days or so as It wasn't used
    heavily. Now before charging it for the second time, I drained the
    battery and then charged it again for 24 hours or so. Ever since, the
    battery has started to drain very quickly even when the phone is idle,
    like no calls made/received, no bluetooth connected etc. The phone is
    usually in complete idle situation. The battery, now, drains by 5% for
    every few hours, e.g 2-3 hours. So it hardly lasts for 2 days even when
    its is idle. I did realize that I shouldn't had drained it completely. But
    now I am wondering if something could be done to bring the back to
    normal level.
    thanks,

    Do you have any programs that use data running? like chat or weather programs that update automatically... and your phone even when idle looks for network signals etc...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I had the same problem but I assumed it was because my internet didn't kick in until the second day. If there's a trick with the battery I'd like to know too.

    Two full days!?!!?!

    You are most certainly fortunate!

    My 7100 & my current 7130 require nightly charging to make it through a single day! And that's only work hours!

    Try turning off the data or wireless when you don't require it.

    Turning off data only will still allow for phone calls and SMS. Turning off wireless will disable the radio for everything.

    ahg, Welcome to PinStack. How far does it discharge in 8 hours. I don't know about the pearl, but Battery usage is Highly dependent on utilization, and on your signal strength. If you are in a weak coverage area the BB will up its power output so as not to have to repeat sending failed packets.

    hope this helps

    Bluetooth "on" eats energy as well, if I'm not mistaken....

    I did look at the list of the apps running in the background. There is
    nothing other than the default APPS that run after you reset the device.
    Also I don't use this BB for internet. It takes about 3-4 hours to get fully
    charged.Do you think I should get a replacement?
    It's usually down to 70% or so with one or two calls (5 min each) at the
    most in 8 hours.

    Well I'd say thats not normal beacause my battery only went down to 60% and I had IM+ / WLIrc / Opera .. all going at once for hours.

    It wouldnt hurt to try a new battery or take it back to your local T-Mobile rep and see what they say.
