Being a long user of Blackberry's, WHY when a new product gets released does my phone suck the battery?? Do not tell me this is coincidence. I know that it is not because it did it two other times before this. I already went to the Sprint Store to have my battery tested and my battery is FINE. I have no new applications on my phone. I use Blackberry chargers. Can you see I have been thru this already before.
I am severly pissed off.... Thinking about switching to an iPhone as I am not under contract. Which also pisses me off because I prefer BB. But this ploy to get me to buy the new products I cannot condone by purchasing another BB.

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums
Being a long user of BlackBerry , I am sure you also know the main reasons for quick battery drainage , As you mentioned you don't have any new applications on your device so just make sure that no apps are running in the backup , don't leave your browser open on any active webpage when not in use and also the wifi and bluetooth.In addition you can try this Knowledge Base to see if that helps :

I did all that. I literally take ONE SINGLE PHONE CALL, after a night of charging and it zaps my battery.
This is really getting ridiculous.
I already closed all backgrounds and did all that.
This happened last 2 times blackberry came out with a new model. I know it sounds paranoid, but I really do think BB does it on purpose.
