Angry draining battery

Please Login to Remove!

hi,

i'm a newbie and i loooooove my blackberry 8700g (i've had several other bb's before but this is a favorite!), however......

i have had this one for a few days and the battery life has been pretty abysmal!
today i'm down to 10% after fairly low usage and starting out with a 100% charge (overnight charge) this morning>>>>>>that can't be right, can it??

i may not have charged the bb fully before starting to use it....but can i recondition the battery somehow by draining it several times like i've read in several other threads?

is this a battery issue or more likely a bb or software issue??

thanks for advice (hopefully)

Default

This happened to me with my 8700c. Though my battery started out fine (I didn't condition the battery). Then one day it was just killing the battery...did it for two days straight.

I took the battery out for a few min, then put it back in and the problem was solved. I'd start there.
