45 minutes!!! I've never heard of a phone having so little hours. Do you mean 3/4 of a day?

Mine last for over 24 hours usually. I run verichat all Day and use Low emails. Maybe something is wrong with your phone.

A 7130g should be able to last about two days of operation in light use and a day's operation in heavier use. Something is wrong with your unit.

Did you buy it used, and are you running any software such as Verichat? It tends to consume a lot of power on CDMA devices such as the 7130g. Install RIM Yahoo Messenger and RIM Google Talk / RIM BlackBerry Chat instead -- these use a lot less battery power.

Also, when charging, keep it plugged for a few more hours even after the battery bar looks full -- it may only be 80% full when you see a full charge.

You won't be able to just check emails now and again because the phone periodically checks the BB server for any new emails by itself. If you don't have any third party software running then just get a new battery and you should get atleast two days use out of it.

Something is wrong. Even with the most vicious of 3rd party software, 45 minutes is not possible unless there is another reason.

Whe3n you charge your BB, is it showing a full charge when you remove it from the charger?

Could it be that you got a bad battery with the unit? If you're getting that kind of life from your battery, it sounds like it may be nearing the end of it's usable life.

Is your backlight set to be on all the time? That would drain the battery fast.
