Default Batthery dying, phone hot OS6

Please Login to Remove!

I installed OS6 on my 9700 yesterday. Now something seems to be running, making the phone hot and killing the battery. How do I find out what is running?

Look at all third-party and add-on apps, and look at the options/settings for each. For now, set all to fully exit when closed...i.e. not run in the background when closed. Double check all settings and don't just look for running programs, as some may run in the background but not be visibile as a running program.

That's the first step: Close everything except the core BlackBerry apps that run all the time by default. Then test for 24 hours and see what happens.

If you are in a fringe signal location, that may also be your problem. But confirm whether or not an app or apps is the cause.

Battery life shouldn't change between OS5 and OS6...
