Talk fast.


Seriously, ditto the link akosnitzky posted.

And top off your battery whenever you get the chance.

I can see where my joke might be taken the wrong way, so . . .

Blackberry battery life is actually pretty good, at least as far as I'm concerned. Still, if you use it a lot, and you are worried you might get stuck and not be able to recharge when you need to -- i.e. you get stuck in a packed airport and all the power outlets are taken -- be prepared, and charge the blackberry when you have a chance and don't put it off.

Smartphones, Cell Phones & Smart Phones at BlackBerry.com lists the battery life for talk and standby time for each of their phones, check there.

Battery life is user dependent. What I or anyone else gets has no relationship to what you might get.

The FAQ article mentioned in a previous post is a good place to start.

Dubdub is being more accurate, I tend to look at things from the technical side. What is listed on BlackBerry.com will give a general idea between the devices, but depending on your usage the battery life may vary.

Agreed. Usage will certainly impact your battery life. However, poor coverage will have a significant impact on it.

Agree on the coverage issue, especially if you are in a fringe area and the device is constantly searching for a good/3G signal.

If i reply in engineers language,NO doubt the quality of signals in a network cell highly effects the battery life of any mobile. Higher the signals, low battery usage will be applied and vice versa
