Default Battery being drained in 4 hrs.

Please Login to Remove!

All of a sudden (last two days) my Curve battery (8320) has been draining in about 4 hours. I don't think the battery would have suddenly gone bad, would it? I mean I **NEVER* had battery issues previously, it always lasted the entire day with about 70% battery left. Now within a 24 hour time period, the battery seems to drain very fast (as I said 4 hrs or so).

I confirmed I have no applications running outside the norm by going to "Switch Application." I only see the browser, blackberry messenger, call log, mailbox, and home screen. But I don't think any of these would suddenly cause it. Any ideas? This is kind of a big problem; I'm not sure if I should just go buy a new battery or what. I've tried the hard-reset by removing the battery multiple times, but no difference.

Thanks in advance for the help!

This is odd. My BB Pearl has been draining fast since I returned from an extended U.S. Road trip two weeks ago. It is about 1 year old so I am not sure if the battery needs replacement or some other Rogers signal problems have occurred. I notice the EDGE signal has been weak these days.

Always, pull the battery first to kill any odd applications running in the background, and read the link above.

Wirelessly posted (7130e)

If it keeps happening I would get another battery.

I had the same problem a couple weeks ago and created a thread about it. Just search for "battery drain?" If u want to go through it. I ended up going to t-mobile and getting my battery replaced no charge. No problems so far.
