Default New Blackberry pearl user!

Please Login to Remove!

I'm a new blackberry pearl user and to be honest i love the phone. I have the blackberry pearl 8130 from sprint with unlimited data plan. The battery life isn't that great though i don't use my phone that much besides checking the time and it checks my email ever so often. I make sure nothing is running in the background(alt+back). I can't seem to figure out why my battery life is so crappy. It doesn't even last through a day with veyr little useage(some calls in and out). Can anyone tell me why and how to fix this?!
Thanks in advance!

How is your signal where you are during the day... A low signal or teying to grab a signal will run the battery pretty heavily.

you should have 5 apps running in the background, is that all you see? no Media or GPS application running at the time?
