Typical Battery Life - 7290?
Hi. I am new to this fourm, but if it is like other product fourms I belog to, as sure I will learn a lot.
Up until last week I had been using a company issued 7280 and it worked great. I could typically go 6-7 days between chanrges, if I did not use the cell phone a lot. The display went bad (all garbled) so my company IT group issued me a new (used) Blackberry. The one I have now is a 7290 and the first thing I noticed is I am lucky if I get a day and a half out of a fully changed battery. I asked our IT group and they said that was normal, but since the 7280 I had lasted so much longer I am questioning what, if anything can be changed in the configuration to extend the battery life, or if 1-2 days is normal?
SOme additional details about my useage, which is the same now as before, but I am adding in case anyone is interested. Our company has a Blackberry Exchange server and I use wireless outlook file reconcilliation (Mail, Calendar, Tasks, etc) but sync my address book manually when connected to the USB cable.
Any help woul dbe appreciated...
Re: Typical Battery Life - 7290?
We support lots of those, and I would say the average battery life should be 4 to 5 days at least for most data users, with a few calls here and there. Of course cell phone usage is a battery killer, and if you are using Bluetooth with it, it's much worse. If you are not using Bluetooth and are only seeing a day and a half, I think you need a new battery.
