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.

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
unlock your phone here

Still rocking my DTEK60

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?
