    Looking to change 8800 Battery Life Indicator

    Advertisement



    Is there any way to change the battery level indiator from bars to say a percentage? I'd rather it say 99% vs looking full or 60% vs half the bars showing.....etc...

    I don't think I can give you exactly what you want. If you press "alt" + "num" + H (at the same time) from the home screen you can get a list of statistics including the battery percentage. Also - if you hold "alt" while typing NMLL you can change your signal bars to a percentage.

    I havn't seen any trick that changes the battery bar that way.

    Hope that does a little something for ya.

    Another thought: there are also some third party apps that will display your battery life as a percentage. I use BBtoday.

    You've been a big help thank you. I do like the BBtoday item. That's kinda what I was looking for since it's similar to my past Pocket PC's and Palm based units. However, I'll stick to your first suggestion as it's easy and I do like the look of my Theme better.

    I'm on my 2nd battery for the 8800 and am getting one day max out of it. Normal usage. Any ideas?

    Describe normal usage. I can get a couple days out of mine with normal usage for me.
