Battery life while in no service area
My 7250 will be arriving tomorrow (w00t), and I have a question about the battery life. I understand that under normal conditions, it is excellent. At my work, part of the building (my office) has no cell phone signal. It is a concrete bunker 3 levels underground. They are working on improving signal strength, and some people are starting to get a signal, but my current LG phone wont. I am hoping the BB will improve that, but in case I have to sit in a signal less enviroment for several hours at a time, what will that do to battery life?
I know batters die faster wtih out a signal, but my LG phone has a powersave feature for this instance. Anything like that on the BB? Anyone know how my battery will be affected?
Thanks, and I cant wait until tomorrow.
Without a signal, your battery life is definitely going to suffer.
Since you know you don't have any signal, just turn off the radio on the BB. Then it won't constantly search for a signal, and still be usable as a PDA.
oooooo, I forgot it could do that. That could be handy. Will that disable phone functions as well?
So im assuming it doesnt have a powersave mode or anything? It will be in holster the whole time if that makes a difference.
Yes, turning the radio off will also disable the phone. There's no powersave mode on the blackberry.
I don't believe simply keeping it in the holster will help in this situation with saving battery power, either.
actually it being in the holster does conserve the battery I have a job site that has sparatic coverage to say the least and as long as I keep my 7520 holstered it willlast all day
Also, keeping it in the holster will turn the screen off, so shouldn't that save battery as well?
