Re: Tour 9630 battery drains extremely quick after updating BlackBerry software to v5.0.0

I've done all of the above always to my 9630 as far as closing out of everything properly, bluetooth off, gps off, battery pull, ect.....and still the battery always drains fast and internet still goes extremely slow. downloading anything from the internet take forever as well. this stuff all worked fine before the 5.0 update when it was 4.7.......but i can't decide if i want to wait it out for a fix cause the new stuff they put on it was all sweet except for the problems everybody is talking about here. does anybody know about or heard a software update/fix for this and when?

Re: Tour 9630 battery drains extremely quick after updating BlackBerry software to v5.0.0

Well I figured out that if you DO NOT do a battery pull reset for a couple days the internet goes back to normal speed??? As far as the battery draining super fast...I don't know? Battery still goes super fast. I know it sounds strange but my internet goes nice and speedy now. I've tried this a couple times and everytime I pull the battery after a couple days and it starts up...stupid thing goes so slow its insane on the internet. Blackberry PLEASE come up with a fix for this v5.0.0 nonsense! I am thinking about switching to a whole different phone if there is not a fix in the next month, I can not put up with this for much longer. Phone is darn near useless besides texting and calling....well calling smokes the battery too so not that either I guess lol.

I had that problem too- when I dowloaded the updates, my phone started draining battery power soooo fast. My internet is slower too. It is very frustrating, I am about to delete aps I have had forever just to stop this. It makes me not want to download updates every again...

Re: Tour 9630 battery drains extremely quick after updating BlackBerry software to v5.0.0

I too have this same issue. However, for me the phone automatically reboots while I'm on the phone talking to someone. It is very frustrating. I think I will downgrade to the earlier software until they work out the software issues with v5.0
