Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


714 is really smooth and the app swapping is amazingly fast but the bttery life has been proven to not be as good as 523 or 658.

Also it doesnt pick up signal quite as fast.

some people this doesnt bother and I notice a few networks have gone official with .714 on many models of phone.

Btw folks, we are easily the longest running thread on this forum Smiley Happy

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Any new OS updates / leaks?

Just got a replacement 9900. My old one just died out of the blue and wouldn't restart. My 4th phone so far. Other ones were replaced due to short battery life issues.

746 have a couple of good additions, coloured led settings, and also new version of maps.

We have a nice new hybrid on its way.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Anyone has some feel on how 746's battery life will stand up to?

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Hello, my blackberry 9900 bold 2 dies immediately the battery hits 50%. I tried with other batteries, the problem still persists. Even I upgraded to OS 6.0 still, the problem persists. What could be the problem?

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


You may have a problem still as the 9900 doesn't support OS6. Smiley Wink


On a more serious not please do an os update from your desktop manager.

The latest versions that most Networks are using are 7.1.0.714 and 746.

This should help you sort the issue.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Thanks for the reply. But before some of my folks here are using OS 5 and never gave them this problem. But I felt upgrading will help in my own issue.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


If you can let me know the correct os version that you are currently on but going to the Options, Device, About Device section on your phone.

The Bold 9900 was only available with OS 7. Then OS 7.1 came out so your version number should always be :

7.0.0
Or 7.1.0

Thanks
