So far I'm truly disappointed and am thinking of changing phones.
I bought My BB bold 9900 10 days ago, for the first couple of days the battery lasted only 6 hours with medium use. Then I browsed through few forum threads, and the best advise that worked for me so far is as follow:
1. Turn the screen brightness to 10%
2. WIFI off when i leave home
3. the most effective is perhaps turning the 3G off unless when you need to browse internet

so far I get 45% remaining battery life after 12 hours of moderate use!!!

I hope you find that useful
