Question 8310's battery drains

Please Login to Remove!

I notice that if I turn my BB Curve (8310) off and let it sit there for a day or two, my battery gets drained to the point that the BB can't even start up.

This problem started occuring just recently. In fact, it never happened until I downloaded/installed the game "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?" Now the battery drains if I leave the BB off and unplugged from the power source.

Has anyone else encountered problems with the battery draining after installing the game "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?"

have you attempted an uninstall of the above mentioned game? then let your BB stand around unused for two days to see you have any battery left?

That's what I'm planning on doing. I just thought I'd check to see if anyone else here hit this problem. I searched the FAQ and the forums for this problem but didn't find anything.

I wonder if I can get a refund for the game if I had to uninstall it because of this problem.

Are you sure you're actually shutting down the game after you play it, rather than leaving it running in the background?

Well, I "Quit" the game on the game menu and don't leave it running in the background. Still, the battery drains.

I have a Texas Hold'em Poker game that I leave running in the background - instead of quitting, I hit the "end call" button and the game isn't exited. When I start the game again, it resumes at the last hand. I've had this game for over a year and have left it "suspended" but it doesn't drain the battery.

I uninstalled the "Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader?" game and am going to leave it unplugged and see if the battery drains.

Just a follow up. I uninstalled the game "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?" and left the BB on overnight a couple of times. The BB Curve's battery no longer drains. It has to be this game.
