Default 8130 ?'s prior to purchase

Please Login to Remove!

I think I like the small size of the 8130 over the 8830. I have several ?. I currently own a 700wx on alltel. I am tired of reconnecting my BT everyday. Occasionally it does not rec calls.
If I sync my 700 daily, shen I get my 8130 I should be able to sync it and transfer all the data in outlook?
I can only go a day on the battery. Does the pearl last longer I would guess I talk about 1 hour to hour and half a day, next day by noon battery down to 18 percent.
what about pic messaging on alltel yes or no. I have read some say yeah and some nay.
great forum plenty of info
thanks
steve

You really should get a charger for the car, your office PC or wherever you are during the day. These Li-Ion batteries are not intended to be continuously drained each and every time. Read more here:

Default Battery Life

HI Stoner, the Battery life on the 8130 is short There are options for slightly extended batteries however. I love it, but this is my first smartphone. Can't answer your Alltell questions as I'm a Verizon user. Good luck...

Well if you read the previous posts they suggests getting a car Charger because the Blackberry Batteries love being topped off. Getting charged any chance that you can get.My BB 8130 lasts for at least a day and a half.
