    GPRS is the data network your on at the time. If you charged it thursday and it's saturday now, yet you have 50% left that's quite good; I charge mine every night.

    That's great battery life. I swap batteries at least twice a day.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~bbs use more batt power than your run of the mill phone because of the amount of information that it proccess all the time. But the batt life you are getting is good for a BB

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Yeah, with that kind of battery life you're not using your BB enough! Keep trying though, with a little more time you will be with the rest of us in the charge once a day club.

    That's some heavy use!

    As everybody else said 50% left after 2 days seems just fine. Mine just gets charged every night.

    Good luck.

    Re: Battery life

    I charge my battery every night -- I have a charger near my nightstand because I also use my blackberry as an alarm. I've been re-assured that you can't "overcharge" a blackberry battery and I like waking up with my battery level at 100%.
