I agree, I used the pearl for about a year and loved the pocket size. Now I like this size and the fact that it flips and covers the keypad.

Has anyone been able to go thru a full day on one charge? The battery seems to be weaker than the curve series.

I have had mine for two weeks. Battery lasts about two days unless I am on the internet all the time. Then it lasts about 13 hours.
I am very impressed with the Style. Being my first BB I am very pleased witht eh keys and screen size. Still trying to fig out all the extras on the Sprint network though!

I've had this phone for 10 days, and really like it - other than the battery life. Battery life on this thing is so bad it's almost worthless. Mine is dead after an hour of talk time - and that's in the middle of town with a strong signal. I've got the wifi, bluetooth and gps all turned off to conserve battery life, and that's as good as it gets. What's the point of having features on a phone if you can't use them because it sucks the life out of the battery? Naturally, Sprint wants me to sit in their store for 90 minutes twiddling my thumbs while someone looks at it - apparently their time is much more valuable than mine. The guy in the store said they hadn't had anyone complain about the battery life so far - I suggested that he try google sometime. I cannot recommend this phone to anyone, unless you really don't like them.

sakcpa - You may want to look and see what else is running. I am a very heavy BBM user and talk for 2 to 3 hours at a time on the phone without killing the battery. Granted after a couple long phone calls I need to charge because I am using wifi (and I have gps not turned off) at the same time in order to BBM, email, etc... But you should definitely get more than an hour of talk time.

Could just be a bad phone, bad battery, or some other issue. Are you getting 1X or 1XEV for signal? When I am running on 1X, I get shorter battery life than I do with 1XEV, but that is the only thing I see as an issue for me and that has nothing to do with the phone.

What OS version are you running? Also, your profile says you are using an 8330 (you may want to update that it makes it easier for people to lend a hand)

Anyone know if this BB can be put into standby mode or not?
