Unusual Battery Drain
I just started having a weird problem with my Pearl. I'm running OS 184.108.40.206 and every time I do a soft reset through QuickPull or a battery pull, the battery level goes down to 0%. It doesn't matter where the battery level is at before the reset. This only started happening after I installed the newest version of Google Maps and the new YouMail program. I have since deleted the YouMail program since VyMail is better but I am still having this problem. Has anyone had a similar problem?
My 8120 did this about 2 weeks ago.
I was attempting to read an RSS feed in Viigo and my 8120 froze in a non stop hourglass for about 2 minutes. I watched the battery go from full to shutting down in seconds. I had to do a battery pull to get it running again. When I put the battery back in, the battery capacity shot back up to full. I know Viigo is a memory hog but I'm still trying to figure out what happened.
Forgot to mention that I uninstalled that particular version of Viigo and just recently upgraded to the newer version and this hasn't happened again.
im guessing the problem is with my battery. since i started this thread its turned off several times while i was in the middle of typing something or while i was just surfing the web. even though it says that the battery isnt close to being drained, i guess it really is.
