Got the Blackberry 9360 mid Dec 2011. The battery on this phone is absolutely PATHETIC, ATTROCIOUS! It barely lasts 2 hrs texting and browsing. I do not consider myself a heavy user. Its on charge all the time. A colleague at work has the same phone, same problem - he was forced to buy an additional battery to carry around and a car charger. I am forced to carry my old Sony Ericsson with me as backup.
I have lodged a complaint with my service provider with whom I have a 2yr contract that the phone is not fit for purpose. They tested the phone, agreed with my complaint and replaced my 1st 9360 with another. Same problem. I am on my way now to them to return the phone and swop for a Sony Ericsson Arc S.
(I have switched off apps, downloaded battery apps, changed to backlight, went from 3G to 2G etc etc but it did not really help. But also, what is the point of the phone then, if evrything has to be switched off??)
I deleted the preinstalled facebook application from my phone the one where facebook chat is available I need advice on downloading the facebook chat app. App World is not giving an option to download/install..another problem my 4gig memory card is stuffed my bb says memory card repair failed. Do I need to get a new memory card???please help
Well! I can`t get this loaded on my PC and therefore can`t even turn it on!
How come I can't open My World in Blackberry App World? It says login but I can't find where to login and how since I can't open My World. with this, also couldn't update my apps. Any same experiences? and how was it solved?
David, 18 Jan 2012I have just been looking between the Blackberry Bold 9780 and the new Curve 9360 and I cannot ... moreThe Blackberry Bold is a much better choice as of yet. You get a good battery of 1500 mAh and a good autofocus camera. But the sad part is that in spite of it being released long back, it is still costlier than the Curve 9360. If RIM makes improvements in the Curve, it would be better, but till then I would prefer to stay with the BOLD 9780.
Why does this phone get so hot when you are using it and why does it have such a low battery life. I have to charge four times a day sometimes and it never lasts longer than half a day when I am not that busy on it?
Kindly close All application by pressing HOME key for 5 seconds... there are many application's running behind the system like WiFi and all
so close them and you all will get good battery backup...
I am particularly fond of this particular handset, and dislike the keys of the Bold series. This is the perfect handset, but I would really like to have the following improvements in it:
-> A good 2000 mAh Li-Po battery. Even if it makes the phone a bit bulky, its fine.
-> At least a 8 mpx continuous autofocus camera with video recording of 1080p @ 60 fps actual.
-> At least 1gb RAM with 16 Gb of in-built memory.
-> A minimum of 1Ghz processor.
-> And please oh please give a physical cover for the micro-USB port.
-> Also a Radio is not too much to ask for.
Come on RIM I am not asking for something out of this world! And I am ready to pay for it. Give me this stuff.
this phone is a great buy. the battery life is good extremely good for the type of battery it has. if you download the power management tool you only have to charge it once per day. guys u need to get pass the idea that this in not just a simple phone it"s a smart phone so it has things running silent in the background so it's gonna use the battery.
I really like this phone but I wonder why so many people complain about battery life when known sites sustain that this phone has a good battery backup?
What`s the secret?
I have just been looking between the Blackberry Bold 9780 and the new Curve 9360 and I cannot decide what to get anybody know which one is the best to choose?
The track pad on my new 9360 wiggles a bit but is still functional. is this normal? this is my first blackberry. thanks
olympus mars, 09 Jan 2012buy the curve 9360, bro. why listen to people who never owned 7 blackberries, or 7 notebooks, ... moreThank you that is the exact opinion out of all the others i needed to get my phone today u just made ma Thursday!!
Dear All with battery issues!
the battery drains due to automatic selection of network between 2g and 3g. kindly set it to MANUAL and select either of 2 networks. You wil experience an extraordinary improvement in the battery life! Cheers!

Not excessive but have to charge daily. I would think if you are listening to music with it, you will be permanently charging! Dismal battery life!
bought it 3 weeks ago. battery life was very poor. Yesterday it went off after the handset was hot and things getting slow. Brought to the store this morning and was okay for 4 hours before it went off again.
