Alright so I've been using my 8330 for almost 2 weeks now, I moved from an 8830. Overall I happy with the change mainly because of the addition memory.
However I do have a considerable difference in battery life, my 8830 would go about 2-3 days without needing a charge depending on use, my Curve however needs to be charged every single day, by 7 p.m. it starts beeping at me that the battery is low.
So to start off with I am re-doing my alert profiles... Does anyone know if it wastes more battery life to have the BlackBerry vibrate or play a tone?
Or does anyone else happen to have any other tips or stuff I can turn off to save my battery, I know it isn't good to drop down to 15% battery life almost every single day.
Other then the normal BlackBerry apps running I do have WeatherBug Direct but I have been using that for months now. As well as JiveTalk but I don't leave myself signed in all the time.
(I have been threw the BBFAQ article)
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.
