Exclamation Battery drains so fast pls help

Please Login to Remove!

I got the BB Curve 8310 with version 4.5

It was fine until two days ago, the battery drains so fast, wont last 8 hours, emails are not coming in. Only MMS and SMS are.

I am able to get on the internet though.

I resent the service books, cleaned the memory, deleted all emails and messages. I see the two arrows on the right top corner like if the phone was receiving or sending data nonstop all day.

I dont know what else to do.

I dont get EMAILS and the battery dies within 8 hours.

Read this for some battery use tips:

For your email, first off, remove the battery from your BB while powered on, replace and reboot. See what happens.

What i think is going on is that for some reazon the phone keeps searching for data or something because those 2 arrows dont stop flashing.

That is correct, your BB will continuously search for the network, it should.

But for mail, it is pushed to the phone, not sought out by the phone.

Do as instructed in the FAQ.
