Hi guys, I'm a new BlackBerry user, I just got my Pearl 8130 last week end and I love it so far.
I have a question though. The battery seems to drain pretty quickly. I admit I played around with it quite a lot (I am a gadget geek after all), but still some of this behavior does not seem normal. The battery was at 40% last night before I went to sleep, and this morning it was at 15%. What gives? I don't have any settings in my browser to "pull content" automatically or anything.
And another thing: let's say I'm using this thing pretty often (which I will for a few weeks, while it's new - it's my first BB, and did I mention I love it?). Can I charge the battery overnight, every night, even if it's at 40-50%, or should I be worried about the "battery memory effect" and let it drain almost completely between charges?
Thanks and I'm looking forward to browsing through the forum, learning new things about my new toy!
