    BB8800 Battery Drain from Full to Zero in less than 48hrs with minimal usage

    Advertisement



    Hello All,

    I have had my BB8800 sincel 1st April 2007.
    It now appears to drain the battery from Full to Zero in less than 48 hours with the usage typically 5x2minute calls per day.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Help much appreciated.

    02UK (service provider) said I had to contact RIM - but that is much easier said than done.

    Peeved!

    How do you use your phone? i.e. since you purchased it in April, does it stay on 24/7?

    If so, it may just be the battery is worn out and has to be replaced. The batteries have a finite amount of charges on them before they start to degrade over time.

    I bought my Pearl in April, used to get great battery life out of it even with heavy usage. Now I'm lucky to make it home from work without needing a charge of some kind.

    Thanks - I'll give the settings a go and maybe a new battery.

    You're lucky...I'm minimal voice usage and mine goes down to about 10-20% battery life by the end of the day...gotta charge every night, and occassionally using the usb cord and desktop computer at work.

    Do y'all get frequent "searching for cdma" or "searching for network" messages on the top of the screen? If so, that's the problem - constantly searching for a wireless signal drains the battery right quick.

    Mabe look into getting a new batt for sure...if you do theen think about getting the extended life batt from seido i got mine a few months ago and i love it! 3 solid days of life with 5-6 calls a day varying in times and a pretty large amount of bb messaging and yahoo messaging a seldom video upload a playing while bored at work. Might be a good investment to check out.
