Default 2nd new unit???? battery issue.......

Please Login to Remove!

i'm kinda at my wits end.....a couple of weeks ago i exchanged my new 8700g for a new one as it wasn't holding battery charge, not getting me through a whole day without radio turning itself of because of low charge.

tried everthing......battery preserving tips on this forum, battery conditioning, pulling the battery etc etc.....

anyway got it exchanged and new unit worked brilliantly.....for about two weeks until yesterday.
haven't changed any settings or changed usage (which is light by the way) yet the battery drops to 45% by midday after being fully charged in the morning.....going down quickly to 25% midafternoon and threatening to tun off radio by 5pm......

just called tmobile and they will possibly exchange although i'm outside their 28 no quibble exchange period from my first unit.....

is this a known issue?

what would you guys do?
i luuurve the bb8700g and wouldn't want anything else.....
advice appreciated!
