Default severe battery drain

Please Login to Remove!

I'm running .122 os and all of a sudden my screen kept lighting up every few min. And its been killing battery. Tried battery pull and no luck. Phone works better with this os minus battery drain. Any suggestions?

Sorry couldn't edit my other post. I can't see your profile but if you are using the 9530 I thought .148 was out.

Are you running any apps (such as gps mapping) that is congured to keep the screen on while the app is running?

I've read that it really helps to use a magnetic holster. Somehow it prevents the drain when not in use.

Do you have any app run on the background? Holster really helps.

The YouTube app is notorious for this - if you have it loaded, make sure you exit it from the BB menu.
