You gotta know your phone's battery. Since I disabled all my applications such as accuweather the battery on this device lasts longer. Try not to add to many applications in the background and auto on/off fuction helps a lot. I feel that Blackberry should work on the battery issues. Some other brands like Nokia last much longer! Surely Blackberry should get with the time and make better batteries!

B, 07 Apr 2012So that means the battery life of 9360 is good? ☺After all these settings that I mnetioned, the battery lasts for 2,5 days, whixh is quite ok taking into account that I receive 30 e-mails per day, plus constant synchronization with my PC at work. However, troubles with batteries is something which is immanent to all nowdays smartphones.
AnonD-3239, 03 Apr 2012I suggest u go for the 9360. You'd love the updated OS. Forget all the noise about it's poor b... moreWell in disagreement to your battery comment, I was 1 of the 1st to purchase the curve (unsure on the model) but it was the 1st bb to come out in pink, that batt was good lasted the whole day, am considering going back as this 9360 batt is rubbish had for 2 days now and the constant charging in terrible!
It gets hot so quick and I have to recharge it like 3x a day. I hope it is because the bad and unstable internet connection...
I have had the 9360 for about 2 weeks now and I'm in love! I had the old Curve for 2 years that ram OS 5/6? and the one complaint I always had was the browser. Well, no more! With OS 7 you can actually open REAL web pages! And it's so much faster! It may not be an android or Iphone, but if you are getting a BB in the 1st place, games and apps probably aren't your 1st priority anyway! But there definitely is a few more decent apps to choose from now. And a free one I recommend is "Battery Enhancer." I thought I noticed the battery was running down kinda quick, figured it was all the new toys I was playing with : ) But with this app, maybe its my imagination, but it seems to not drain as quickly.
Hope this helps some of you that are on the fence!

I' v been using it for 2 weeks and my opinion it is a great business tool. Battery issues are present however it can be easilly and significantly improved by turning off all the neccessary aps such as facebook, GPS positioning, WI-FI scaning when out of home wi-fi network, decreasing the backlightning time to 10 sec or switching to 2G instead of 3G.
