Unhappy New Blackberry - Questions?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello. I bought a brand new Blackberry Tour today and I have a few questions concerning charging the device:
How long does it usually take a Blackberry Tour to charge for the first time? It's been an hour or so and my battery is still at 3%. I'm beginning to worry that this isn't normal. It's stressing me out as well, because I can't send/receive calls or SMS messages due to the radio having been shut off (the battery is too low for the radio, apparently).
Also, how long does a fully-charged battery usually last? I can deal with charging for a few hours every three days or so, but I cannot charge a cell phone for four hours every day.
Help?

usually 2 hours or less to charge it, My battery can last all day or 5 hours depending on what I use. the more you use it the less battery time. Stand by time ( not using it) can be as long as a weekend or more depending on messages pushed.

with device on pull the battery to clear its cache like rebooting a PC

Is this BlackBerry really brand new? Or just new to you?

How are you charging? Wall charger, or USB...what? If you are charging on a computer via USB, did you install the desktop software, or at least the drivers?
