Hi.. am a new Bold 9900 user and glad to have stumpled upon this forum.
I have an unlocked AT&T phone which i purchased from a reseller in India. I have wiped my phone and installed a copy of 188.8.131.522 Redington (India). After 24 hours of use i notice my battery is lasting jus about 12 hours with moderate use of phone, bbm and whatsapp even with wifi off. As read, i am thinking of giving the battery some more time to pick up its best performance as today was only day 1 after the new install. However whats confusing me is that the network shows am connected to 4G even though it is not even provided by my service provider. I tried to look for an option to limit the connection to 3G or EDGE but unlike previous BB's that i have own, OS 7.1 does not seem to have that function. The only thing i can do is choose a network manually and even then the network status remains 4G. I am afraid its due to this that my battery is not lasting long.. any advice?

Yes I know that, but its not entirely necessary. I tend to drain mine every couple of days just through use but more so the phone knows where its at.
Also I swap batteries every so often. Helps also.
