im also having the same prob with the batt life, very short. i charge my fone 3x a day. it's just 6days old. my postpaid provider said that RIM does not allow replacement just like that. they need to take in my fone and bring it to SG for checking. im from Philippines. maximum of 3mos. my gosh! i cant live with fone for 3mos! i hope RIM will hear our cries and do something about this at once. why cant they just recall the fone or release a new batt pack? i think that's easier. im wondering why RIM increased the processor but did not for the batt. doesnt it follow? im really disappointed and frustrated.
Got the phone for three days now. Battery is absolutely pathetic. If u nly reciev bbms it might just last for 8 hours.
My previous bb was a 9700. Battery was not bad.
I love the size. BB needs to make future models thinner n lighter with full qwerty. To me the pearl was a winner.
It would b highly appreciated if BB could sought out the software such that it maximizes battery life.
well what can i say blackberry outdoing themselves again fantastic device which takes all the features of the bigger bold and puts them in a sleeker neater design brill 5mp camera good processer quick and like having the faster 3g
What is the essence of making a perfect phone with a poor battery life? I have one and I reggreted buying it, go online for two hours your battery will be dead. Most of the time this phone generate high degree heat, apart from these two very important things every other things work perfectly not bother about the hard keys though. Blackberry is good but don't buy this model you will surely regret it.

My backlight is set to 10% with auto din light and 10 seconds turn off backlight. I don't wanna chane my network to 2g though. Because by changing this, I won't enjoy my 3g phone anymore. Thank you for your advice. :)
@eli-doc: Thanks for your advise. However, that option is not there. What I meant was that if you wanted to delete any message it would generally give 3 options , delete from handheld , delete from handheld and server or cancel. I am now only getting 2 options 'delete' or 'cancel'. I have migrated from Bold 9700 with os 6.0 but I see there are functionalities which are less on 7.0 compared to 6.0. The email setup is also different

Here is the Answer for cycle charge?
The long and short of it is, If you charge your battery 50% now, then you disconnect the charger, then you connect it back for 20%, disconnect, and you connnect it back for 30%, that adds up to 1 charge cycle (50%+20%+30%=100%).
Therefore, you need a full cycle, 0 to 100%, to constitute to 1 charge cycle.
As for charging too often, well, this is a personal thing. Right now, I’m using my MBP plugged in. So far, so good. Only complaints, the processor slowdown (probably to control the heat)
You can release more memory by deleting all the social network (IM's) applications you dont need, or just all of them. Also delete podcasts, any games and social feeds. Easy to do in applications management. Hardware restart and turn off location enable. You will have much more memory and the mobile will be faster and smoother.

Its a very stylish and sleek phone with a 5mp camera and flash for those of you who think it doesn't have a flash. I've had it for 2 weeks now I must say I had the problems too. But switching to 2g and switching off d gps, made the battery last longer! Overall its a very good phone at a very good price...
Why can't I update mine? It says, "no updates available"
May I just say, this phone is great, but could have been EXCEPTIONAL if the battery is good. It can only last for, I guess, 4-5 hours, medium use.
I don't understand..... This model has a great graphics, compared to the other models like torch 9800, and good os, with great speed! But why did they let the battery go down? The battery capacity is 1000 mAh. Obviously, the 1000 mAh battery can't take a 480x360 graphic compressed, a 800mHz processor, and an OS 7 (if it may contribute to the topic) into 1 day. AT LEAST ONE DAY! It would be better if they upgrade it to, at least, 1300 mAh. The old curve 9300 has higher battery capacity with 1100 mAh, if I'm not mistaken. I just don't get it.
I hope RIM will be aware and upgrade this.
