Default HELP! I'm new to BB and this forum!

Please Login to Remove!

What's up BlackBerry Forums? It's nice to be a part of the family. But I have a couple of questions.

1. Should I put my phone into standby mode overnight?
(I did it before when the battery was 100% and it died the next morning)
2. When should I put my phone into standby mode?
3. How come when I turn my phone on, I receive a text but it only shows the time I received it which is basically the time I turned my phone on as opposed to the time the person actually sent it. How can I change this?
4. Is it bad to charge the blackberry overnight?

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!

Welcome to the BlackBerry Forum and the BlackBerry world.

I have been using BlackBerry smartphones for a few years now and I have never put it in standby mode and the device works well.
I think the reason why you get it at that time is because the carrier service is tagging it with the time that your device came online and accepted the message.
I charge my phone overnight, EVERY NIGHT for the last 5+ years, I'm doing it now even and I have no battery issues. I connect my battery to the charger at 10pm and take it off at 7am when I'm heading out and I don't charge up again to I get home again.

Hope this helps.

I have mine go to sleep at 11 PM and wake up at 7 AM, Monday to Friday and sleep at 11 PM and wake at 9 AM on weekends.

Never noticed any big change in battery, really never looked that much either. I keep it connected in the office and charge it as needed otherwise.

Welcome to the forums.

You do not have to put your BB in standby mode over night. I only put it in standby mode if I don't have my case and need to place it in my pocket to prevent it from 'pocket dialing.' I very rarely don't have my case. Plus I have it password protected, so if it would pocket dial, it would be an emergency call. I would like to prevent this, so that's where standby mode comes in handy.

I also charge my device every night. Read this for more info:

I put my BB into standby at night, doesn't drain my battery.
Though it sometimes takes itself out of standby, which i have no idea how it does.
But usually its great.
