Default ATTN: Solution for your horrible BB Battery Life!

Please Login to Remove!

I didnt see a thread where the message is directly sent, so Ive made this thread to grab the attention of all pearl users who are experience horrendous battery life, such as myself.

If you hold down the ALT key (left of * key) and the BACK key (right of the trackball) you can see what current apps are running in the background.

The first time I recived my pearl, the battery life was great. After a couple days of messing with it, I noticed my battery lasted 2 hours talktime max. I was upset and determined to find a solution. Well, I've recently found out that many many times, the battery drains because apps in the background are still running. So please make sure you close them.

Also, to make this thread even more useful, please list what pearl, carrier, and package you have, and the list of apps in the background. Also, your estimated battery life (fully charged).

Example -
Pearl 8130 w/ Sprint + BB PV Package
Phone, Messages, Home, Browser, BB Messenger, Camera, Sprint Nav
Battery life - apprx. 9-12 hours / 2 hours talktime.

If anybody knows howto close certain apps, or the best profile for maximum battery life, let us know!
