Help! Battery Problems Curve 8330
I just purchased a Curve 8330 and the battery seems to drain without any real usage. The first unit I brought back drained the battery down to 5% without any real usage (receiving of 3 emails and 2 blackbery messages); while at the store talking with the clerk all I did was delete 2 email messages and the battery dropped 10%. I am now on my 2nd unit and the battery still drains really quickly.
The battery was at a 100% this a.m. and 6 hours later I am down to 75% - the only usuage was sending a message on the Blackberry messenger (10 lines total (received and tranmited)) to someone in the same building. I have good signal so the unit is not searching. Does anyone know if there has been a problem with this particular unit - (just purchased in October) - I have tried all the suggestions (stand-by mode, nothing running in background, bluetooth off, etc) nothing is helping to extend the battery life. Any help would be greatly appreciated - I cannot return the unit a second time.
If you can't return it you had better buy one of the extended batteries. That is far from right.
check all your settings. i have my backlight set for 50 percent brightness. and to shut off at 10 seconds. my batt don't last like it should. i ran a speedometer program once that kinda heated up the phone and ruined the batt a little. but with those settings. i can still keep up for the day. and my phone gets texted A LOT. the back light kills more then making a phone call.
check all your settings and shut down things you don't need and cut down on everything else.
the phone comes with an 1100 battery. i see 1000 batteries on the net. and some 1400's too. $50 will buy you a 1400. that's 30 percent more power.
my first windows mobile was a treo 700wx. the battery sucked all along. i was able to find a brand new replacement on the net for $10. and it kicked butt over the original battery. exact same battery.
As snowwy said, two supposedly identical batteries can actually yield very different results. You may just have a bad battery.
