Default Battery Draining Fast

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,

I own a Blackberry Bold 9780. I updated my mobile a couple of weeks back and since then my battery has been draining really fast, around 4-6 hours. I have tried everything, even made sure nothing out of the ordinary is running in the background.

Please help!

Revert to the older OS - did you try that?

Check the FAQ for "Maximum Battery Life".

Newer isn't always better.

I never recommend an OS update just for the heck of it. If you device works as you want and need it to work, then it isn't broken and does not need to be fixed with an OS update.

Check the 9700 section for more information on that update.

I noticed the same issue with the last update. I upgraded to the latest RIM has to offer for the 9700. So far it seems to have helped. I suspect an APP that came with the previous version was running causing the issue. Only time will tell.

I did delete a few Apps that seemed useless.

Well after all the headache and deleting most of the apps nothing seemed to work, so tsac pls dont bother deleting or uninstalling any apps. After all that i just uninstalled the latest OS and installed the second to last as the one before would not work for me. Now my battery is back on track, i fully charged it 5 days ago and still have just under 50% left as i dont use anything on my mobile, just making calls. Its my spare mobile so that's why the battery is still up.

Dubdub - many thanks!!!

Blackberry - You suck lol!!!
