Question Battery Life for 9300

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 9300 curve and the phone is only about 2 weeks old.
I even went as far to switch all connections off i.e BIS , WIFI , Bluetooth as well as there are no applications running. I only switch BIS on for about an hour at night and that's it.
The battery life only lasts for about 1.5 days.
If BIS is on the battery only lasts about 10hrs.

So basically i use to make and receive calls.
Considering sending it back to supplier to send as repairs, Will it help when it comes back?
Is the battery faulty or is this normal?
Please Help

Sounds great to me. Smartphones/BBs use more power than ordinary cell phones. 3G devices use more than standard EDGE devices. From what I have read, BIS doesn't actually consume that much power since email is pushed.

Read this from our FAQ:

Actually, you should always keep the battery topped off and never let it get below 20%. Getting lower can damage the battery and possibly the device itself.

Why are you so averse to keeping it on all day and charging at night?
