Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Just updated OS to .825. I don't see any new features. Would someone please let me know what they have changed on this new OS vs the previous one?

825 has the usual refinements. Faster browsing, better battery and all round the 

Phone just reacts better.

OS10 on the Z10. A great combination.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

That's good to know.  It'll be released here next month and we can't wait.  I'm salivating and checking out all the sites and trying to get as much information as possible prior to the Stateside release.

 

Has the battery settled as yet?  on average I take it that you're getting 8-10 hours.

 

Having 4 apps open and always being "in" would make me wonder about the battery life indeed; however, you're our resident expert so your word carries weight.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

 

You replied on the wrong day. An official 7.1.0.861 for the 9900

Was released yesterday. :smileyhappy:

 

It is very fast and the battery drain is better again than 825.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Indeed, the new software is very good for both 9900 and for 9930, in 9930 I saw my battery consumption decreased by 1% from 3.4 to 3.7 and now I am 2.7

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Once the Z10 is released here in the States, will there be a need for this THREAD as more and more of us relocate ourselves to that device?!? :-)

So much for all the chit chat but has anyone actually come up with a solution to the abysmal battery life of the 9900?

 

I actually wasted money on buying a 'long life' battery - typing the name of it takes longer than the battery charge life manages to maintain!!!!!

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Hi,  

 

I can only assume from your comment that you possibly 

Have not managed to read the thread. 

 

The latest official os in vastly better than any of

The older versions. 

 

There's also other os's about that can help improve 

The phone in both battery and use ability. 

 

I hope you manage to get the latest which is 

Os 7.1.0.861 onto your phone as it will help your

Enjoyment of a great handset. 

 

I am using my 9900 as my 2nd phone now but like

It better for typing than this z10. 

 

 

OS10 on the Z10. A great combination.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Hi there

 

thanks for the information, however, having checked my OS on the phone and seen if an update is available it tells me that my OS is up to date, but the battery still discharges at an alarming rate!!!!
