Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Well.. I got tired of waiting.  After 191 pages of post and 7 months of low battery problems, i finally migrated to an Android (Atrix).  I won't say i don't miss my 9900 because I do, but a little less every day and every time i download another useful app that works and doesn't require me to stay plugged in all day.  It's really regrettable but RIM has only themselves to blame.

Well its a sad day but I hope you enjoy your change. We are up to 19 hours + with our new hybrid OS. Far more than RIM have given us.

I am sure when you are next due an upgrade you might be swayed back to the blackside. :smileyhappy:

I can go into detail on the hybrid on here I am afraid. Please check out the thread on the blog where you got the files. It provides install instructions.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Hi all,

Just had a quick browse over the last few pages, I'm guessing that all the bugs (i.e. the freezing, and any other glitches) have been fixed with the newest unofficial software version?... What's the latest official software version like?

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

The freezing, glitches, battery problems and all of thes things have been fixed in the latest official software version

Os 7.1.0.569 

For a battery that last more keep your network on 2g unless u need a higher speed connection for specific thing.

And u will find the battery saving mode in the option menu as well, keep it always on.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


Sorry I have been quiet recently. Been testing a few hybrid releases. And with the official's having slowed down that's the best was to solve the issues.

Our latest is coming out in a few days and I had 70% battery after work today:smileyhappy:

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Ah, I see.   Something I won't be able to upgrade to without someone hand-holding me.
