Default One day the 8830 battery is fine, the next...

Morning, I've had my VZ 8830 since its release last June and have been pretty impressed with the battery life, even when I use the phone to play music. BUT..all of a sudden over the weekend my battery started to crap out. There was no slow decline of battery strength.

What gives, anyone have any ideas?

Thanks.

Matty, press Alt + Escape (right of the trackball). If there are applications running in the background, you should close them. You will alway have the homescreen, phone, address book, BBMessenger and the browser running. Close others.

Also, make sure the browser is not on an active webpage.
