I have had this handset for 1 week..and despite its sleekness and impressive features i must say the battery life is absolutely horrific. it will barely last half the day(4-5hrs) and i have to take the charger to work. really disappointing as the handset is excellent in almost every other aspect.
Anonymous, 25 Dec 2011Please explain specifically how long your battery can last after the update?
I live in Indone... morebefore this i'm using 18.104.22.1689.
after update to 22.214.171.1240, the performance is a bit improved.
the battery life, from day until night, it use about 50 to 40% for light & medium usage.
doesn't have java ?
mean can't install everything ?
*sorry if i'm wrong
Can anyone suggest me what to choose between curve 9360 and bold 9870
I know that 9780 can freeze sometime but have a better battery life
This 9360 sure runs everything faster,,but can the battery life be as good as bold 9870 with the same usage?can 9360 battery life improve with several cycle and update OS?
if ur runnin facebook or youtube via wifi/carrier u will end up with 3rd degree burns in ur hand thats how hot it get from memory card area of 9360 and battery can easily drain in 1 to 2 hour if u start using it like a PC.but its slick and attractive and u certianly will be notice by carryin it despite its look dont get carried away and attend a call cause that can also cause some liener kind of fracture.
Guys! Please help with the battery! :( it only last for about 5 hours. My brightness is set to 10 with 10 seconds of backlight time-out and auto dimming of light. My ring tone volume in Normal profile is 5 but I usually use Silent as my profile. I also turned off the location thing on my location settings. I DID EVERYTHING! I PROMISE! But still, the battery only last for 5 hours with slight use of internet (facebook, ubertwitter, BBM), and texting. PLEASE HELP GUYS!!! PLEASE!! :( I have 1 question though, how to set the screen contrast? Can't find it in $y scree display settings. :/ oh! And I have to charge twice a day. :/ PLEASE HELP ME WITH MY BATTERY GUYS! :(

have bought d BB 9360 a last week. design wise d phone gets 10 on 10. performance is also good. But d keypad is quite hard when u think abt d price at which u bought it. battery life is also not dat impressive. max battery life is 2 days(with min usage). Trackpad needs some improvement. Overall a nice buy taking into consideration d sleek look n features available in d given price. A 7 on 10 from me for BB 9360.

HoWa, 19 Dec 2011yes you canthanks a lot for the info.
i've already update my BB to 188.8.131.520 and it works great.
I am a blackberry user for the past 10years, recently got Curve9360. With floods of other smartphone options around us main reason people buy BB is for its amazing Qwerty keypad. But I am so frustated with the 9360 having very had keypad, so irritating to attend calls due to green and red buttons are hard enough you will struggle to attend phone calls.
The old models 8xxx all have great typing keypads, wonder why would they compromise on this very basic feature. So its a punishment for those who opt for cheaper version, does it cost lots of money to give the soft key for all models. So its only those pay lots of money with higher model elligible for soft keys.
Really frustrating, this is my last BB and looking to swith over to non BB.
I'm looking at options in the BB section i am interested in this blackberry curve 9360 it has a 5mp camera,an LED flash and 3G but i am a bit disapointed in the amount of internal memory it offers overall it is a great phone,thumbs up to the blackberry upgraders.
How can i sey up my yahoo messenger and google talk? Cannot st up hanset.y
