Default battery problem??

My BB is about 2 months old. It is turned on 24/7. Until recently, the battery lasted about 5-6 days (from level '5' to level '1'). Now, it seems to be lasting less than 2 days (sometimes less).

My usage hasn't changed - is this typical of the battery life or possibly a bad one?

Even my cell phone batt lasts longer, and it's about 1/10 the size.

Tks for any help.

If you have a 7290 (or equivalent), some have complained about battery issues even over a short period of time. Read this and hopefully you can get a replacement battery under warranty if yours is truly defective.

I had a 7230 and I got the 3-5 day thing. I now have a 7290 and because of the bluetooth (I think), I am getting no more than 1 day.
