Default My 8800 Battery Life Sucks

Please Login to Remove!

There I wanted to be the first with this type of thread. Can you imagine running the GPS, IM and MLB Tracker during a game. So what is thin anyway if you need an extended battery.

Don't be too concerned. You just need big pockets I have the same problem with my 8800 and I was told that S.P.D. will sell extended batteries for the 8800 starting next week. I have preorderd two to be safe.
Btw, is MAPS crashing all the times on your 8800, too?

Total Noob I have so many questions for u. Just got my 88 and I need to know if there's any way to get email and stuf without a data plan.

Also, I how do I move icons around.

Also can you guys give me the unlock code - i bought it from Cimgular, but I want to unlock it to use on Verizon.

Can I load pocket word on it and other programs for windows mobile?

And where in the desktop software do I put in contacts and calender stuf?

Oops new problem. I dropped it in chlorine while cleaning my pool and I was wondering what those green bubbles were that were oozing out of the keyboard. Now I like green, but maybe not this kind.

Does the 8800 auto dim work? Does Jibi have a BlackBerry.ALX out to unlock all themes, even those that don't exist yet.

Can I load Ringtones via the Bluetooth headset that is attached to my RAZR?

I want to hook up my 8800 to my companies "Good" server via TMO's new @home service... I don't want a voice plan just data only, but I also want a custom SIP client that works with Windows and what ever O/S is running on the 8800.




Sorry couldn't resist.

My 8800 made a good chew toy for my puppy. Where can I get a new keyboard? and can I mod it to fit in my RAZR while I am at it.
