    Question Low Battery Life

    Advertisement



    I've been noticing since I got my data plan my battery life has been dramastically lower. For example, before the data plan I would use the BB from 7AM - 8PM and still have about at Least half battery life. But now with the data plan at this time I would be in the red area. This is with about the same amount of usage. Is this normal or is there a battery problem?

    You may want to check and see what apps you have running in the background. You may have some data hogs running. Click Alt+Escape to open up the list of running apps. Then you can close the ones you don't need. Keep in mind some will always remain open.

    I thought it was my battery so I got a new one, then the same problem... I closed all my open apps and I find it lasts longer.

    The programs that I found were open were Jivetalk, BB browser, BB Light (but I disabled it), and BB messenger. Which one is causing the most battery issues?

    That would be Jivetalk! But, if you upgrade to the newest release (go to "About" in their menu), they have made a fix to conserve battery life while it is open in the background. I upgraded yesterday and kept it open all day and the battery drained much more slowly.

    Yeah I got the email from Jivetalk yesterday and installed the new one with battery power saver. I'm not gonna lie I'm a BB addict and on it all the time. But before I wasn't draining the battery this much.

    It's a beta application, so to be a tester you have to email the developers at: support@beejive.com.

    There's also a thread on here, but someone or myself will get that link to you ASAP.

    Its a GREAT app...you'll love it!

    I think the battery we get with the phone is cheap. At the price we pay, they could have a much better one in there.

    I agree Einherjer. I tried the link for OTA and it says that there is an http error 404: not found. Any suggestions?

    Ya JiveTalk will def drain some battery. But the new build does have a battery save mode. If someone needs the ota or the zip link for JiveTalk, just email me and ill give you the link a lot faster than JiveTalk will lol.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~The browser uses a lot of battery, so even if you use your BB the same amount of time, but are now using the browser or web-based apps, that is in part why you are seeing less battery life.

    Hey mamatried I PMed you with the link. If you didn't get it just email me at mzec7(at)yahoo.com o I would suggest that you take your email of the thread since spam bots search forums for emails and bombarde you with spam. Nothing worse than a spammy blackberry. that is if you have your email forwarded to your BB of course.
