Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Click the link in my initial post. It's a detailed outline of the new features available in the new release. That said, I don't think there is any mention of improved battery life. They'd have to admit it was poor to begin with and that probably won't happen.

Really ??  then it's great that they're putting it in print and setting the expectation. For those that haven't lost COMPLETE faith in RIM this is likely just the news they've been waiting for !!  For those of us following this thread, we all knew it was just a matter of time :Yes:

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


And Orange customer support quoted the same claim about battery improvements from their support system.
OS10 on the Z10. A great combination.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

My guess is, its the carriers that have been taking the brunt of the grief in regards to this phone's performance so it doesn't surprise me to see/hear that they are anxious to advise users there's finally been some action taken in response to their complaints !

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

I don't see any improvement with this build,
Still have high battery drain level about 7-12%
When use 3g network.

Just use the phone for bbm,
No voice call, no sms, no music, no podcast,

Just receiving few emails per hours. I think it's less than 5 mail / hours.

It's another issue?
