    memory cleaning and battery life

    Advertisement



    Does anyone notice that if they have their berry set to perform memory cleaning when holstered, that the battery life is going down? This seems to be happening to me but I'm trying to figure out if its the memory cleaning, or the fact that I keep my memory card encrypted. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks guys!

    I don't think it would be either. The memory cleaner is a process that ends when the cleaning is complete. Encryption on a memory card would not effect battery life either. Encryption is a process that ends when the encrypted data is transfered. I can't think of anything that would drain the battery when holstered, especially if you have the holster that puts the phone in sleep mode.

    Encrypting the memory card could cause a slight battery drain I suppose. I prefer to keep memory cleaner enabled and set to clean when my device is holstered, as well as when my device goes idle after an hour. I don't think memory cleaner drains very much battery at all. If you have a GPS enabled device and always have your GPS set to "Location On" that will drain your battery faster than if you have it set to 911 only. Make sure and check your backlight time out also. A setting of 2 minutes will drain your battery much faster than if it is set to 30 seconds or less.

    I do remember seeing a post about the holster for the 8900 not putting the phone into sleep mode. Therefor the phone would constantly search for a network, hence reducing battery life. Your profile dosen't say what device you have so I don't know if this would help you.

    I got the bold on AT&T, and l always got good signal. Just at work I lock my phone, encrypt my memory card and have my phone do the memory cleaning when holstered. The phone is also set to lock when holstered as well, I'm not sure if this would affect anything with the battery either. The signal is the same between home and work, and I keep all the settings the same, with the exception of occasionally changing the theme. Its just that for some reason my phones battery life when I'm at work is terrible, it dies very quickly with me barely using it. At home I can be on my blackberry for hours and my battery will hold up just fine.

    Are you using WiFi at home? If so, are you turning off WiFi when you go to work? Searching for a WiFi signal all day can cause the battery to drain quickly as well.

    No I rarely use wifi. I just keep my phone locked at work in case I lose it then I won't have to worry about my personal data. I'm just curious why my battery life is so much worse at work that it is at home, especially being that I use my phone more at home than I do when I'm at work, with the exception of my lunch break.
