I Need Serious Help, Take 2.
Ok, i got my blackberry pearl from telus around the beginning of july. alittle while later i installed a 4.5 BETA os . then it started, my battery would barley last about 7 hours. so i erased the 4.5 BETA then i reinstalled 4.3. now its happening all over again after about three weeks of perfect battery life its staring to go bad again, my only options are to go to telus and explain my story. Thoughts ?
Your battery lasts 7 hours without using your BB at all for any purpose? My battery will last through the day but it has to be charged everynight because I use it frequently.
Make sure you do not have alot of programs running in the background.
what apps have you installed on your BB ?
You might have something you leave running in the background that is killing your battery
The young man knows the rules, and the old man will enforce them!
DO YOU HAVE A WIFI AT HOME ?
IS YOUR BLUETOOTH ON?
WHAT BROWSER YOU USE?
INSTANT MESSENGERS START AUTOMATICALLY ??
how old is the battery??
did you buy it used?
Just think about it
Just some ideas..
i have no 3rd party apps what so ever. and bluetooth is off.
i think its the phone because i could usually get like 3 days if i did nothing, but it dies after 7 hours on standby
Try wiping the phone, then reinstal your OS. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~try a new batt is the only other thing I can think of.
im 99% sure its not the battery, the best thing i can do is bring it back to telus and see what they say .
Listen dude it sounds like your battery is taking a crap on you, find a friend that has a bb with the same battery and kick in the browser start instant messaging i dont know drain the battery somehow, for all i care you can hump it and then youll see if if the battery is making all this problems
Im a mechanic and thats what batteries do when theyre dying.. they just don't hold a charge
Last but not least...
ASk for warranty ...
The normal life for a battery life is three days after that u have to charge
ok, well i'd rather not "hump" my phone, however i went to telus and there ordering me a new pearl because my problems are far beyond bad battery life, my phone will have a white screen that wont go away unless i do a battery pull, then it works but when i wake it up from sleep its white screened.
for some reason my phone is extramly messed up, like i said befor i wiped it 3-4 times and it would work great for awhile, then start this weird battery thing, and the phone would load every few seconds, sometimes the hourglass doesn't even leave the screen/
however it will all be solved now.
