Unhappy Help! Battery Problems Curve 8330

Please Login to Remove!


I just purchased a Curve 8330 and the battery seems to drain without any real usage. The first unit I brought back drained the battery down to 5% without any real usage (receiving of 3 emails and 2 blackbery messages); while at the store talking with the clerk all I did was delete 2 email messages and the battery dropped 10%. I am now on my 2nd unit and the battery still drains really quickly.

The battery was at a 100% this a.m. and 6 hours later I am down to 75% - the only usuage was sending a message on the Blackberry messenger (10 lines total (received and tranmited)) to someone in the same building. I have good signal so the unit is not searching. Does anyone know if there has been a problem with this particular unit - (just purchased in October) - I have tried all the suggestions (stand-by mode, nothing running in background, bluetooth off, etc) nothing is helping to extend the battery life. Any help would be greatly appreciated - I cannot return the unit a second time.
