Default Pearl battery

Please Login to Remove!

After putting in a 2GB memory card, my blackberry only lasts barely 2 days. Any one else have this problem or know a fix?

How long was it lasting before? For the Pearl (with only a 900mAH battery) 2 days is pretty good. I only get about a day and a half with the OEM battery.

Also, if you remove the media card, does it last longer again? Make sure to check and see what programs you have running in the background (if any). Press the ALT + ESC key to check this out.

Yes, you pressed the right buttons. The ones that will always be running (and that you can't really close) are Home, Browser, BB Messenger, Messages and Phone. Try to close out of BBWeather, Media and Brickbreaker. If you just press the Red End Call key that does not close the programs. It just goes to the home screen while leaving the program open. Using the ESC key will sometimes close certain programs, while other you have to close them out using a menu option.
