under normal usage my 8220 battery will last until 1p-2p and be at 1/2 charge, after charging all night long.
my battery is draining unusually quickly.
When I called TMOB they told me to take the phone back to the retail store and have them replace the unit.
Anyone else have this issue?
Whats apps do you have running?
nothing running all the time. just checking messages and making a few calls.
nothing out of the ordinary of my pearl 8100
I have a few apps but i installed beejiveIM and that thing runs my battery down even faster. do you still have your 8100?
I had this problem recently and I had no programs running in the background. After I reinstalled the os, the battery life was normal again.
I still have the 8100 and upgraded the OS to .155~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
I had a strange quick-discharge issue with my 8120. Basically, if the battery wasn't in super tight, the battery ran from 100 to 0 in about 2 or 3 hours. I'd know it was happening if I opened the door, and the battery was hot. A battery pull usually stopped the rapid drain but I was left with whatever little charge was left (this always seemed to happen when I was away from a charger.)
TMO did a warranty swap on the handset AND the battery. Didn't help, still happened when the battery was even a milimeter lose. I haven't noticed it yet on the flipberry, but maybe it has the same issue...
FYI, this never happened on my 8100 either, just the 8120.
