    unexplained battery drain?

    Advertisement



    Wonder if anyone else is having battery issues. My BB is not searching for signal or anything like that. The programs I have running are jive and viigo. Every once in a while I do see the data arrows in the right upper corner flashing...any ideas?

    The data arrows are normal. What exactly is the battery drain issue?

    As a first test, you might want to make sure about the wireless transmitter: Turn off wireless [on my screen, this amounts to changing a "green light" into a "red light"] and see if you are still having a drain!

    I never used to mess with it before. So go into connections and shut off wireless? 8830 here~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Huh? You will lose less with wireless turned off. That's a given.

    How often do you download feeds in viigo? Do you use a holster? How quick is quick?

    There are lots of things we need to know to help.

    Yes I use a holster. I download feeds every 4 hours. The whole battery doesn't drain just goes down. It didn't go all the way out. It didn't use to drain as much as it does. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    make sure viigo isnt auto-updating all your feeds all the time. i set mine to not auto-check and that saved a whole hell of a lot for me
