    Battery Life??

    Advertisement



    ok this may sound weird and im almost positive i have read it somewhere else, but i have been noticing that since i have upgraded from .64 OS to .103, about to do .107, the battery life has been decreasing extremely fast. I was wondering if anyone knows what thats all about. that is one thing i have loved about this phone compared to my old one is that i can go a whole day of calls, internet and texting and my battery life was well above 50%, now its 6 o'clock here and i took it off charge around 10 or so and my battery life wont last the rest of the night unless i charge it up. Was this solved in the .107 OS? I read somewhere about it being from the .103, but wasnt sure, now its making sense if it is. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? anything would help.

    Hey. I recommend that you upgrade to .107
    Not sure if this was solved in the .107 os...but you should upgrade to it since its the latest.
    And make sure you arent running any applications behind. You can check this by: ALT + escape and use trackball the trackball while holding the alt key to chose an app and close it. This should save battery if you are unknowingly running any apps behind. And you can prevent this by closing app by using the Escape button instead of using the end (hangup button) button. Which minimizes the app. And if you are using colorpearl...i noticed that it does a good amount of battery juice.

    You might also check and see if blue tooth is enabled. Even if you are not paired it will increase battery drain if left active.

    thanks

    ALT = very bottom left button with the arrows
    Escape = button to the right of the trackball with the arrows

    Juat press them together...and hold the ALT until you're on the app you want

    thats for the TMO pearl
    think AT&T ALT button actually says ALT.

    I am having the same issues, very short battery life, no extra apps running in backgroud and I get about a half a day on it. Thought it was a bad battery, got a new one and still the same. I am running .107 Mine started when I updated to.101 I tried removing some of the apps I have on the phone just to see if it was caused by one of them, it is a bit better, but nothing close to the life it had before the upgrades.
