Re: OS 6 - uses more battery and slow to response

[ Edited ]

I've had the same problem for approx 3 weeks now.  Charging 3 times a day. Charge overnight and leave for work on a full 100% battery.  Barely use the phone all day and it's done by lunch time. I have BB Bold 9700 and operating on OS6 version 2475

 

I've read all the email thread previously and thank you for all your help.  I've been blaming my provider even to the extent that I was given a replacement phone and the problem still exists.

 

I've downgraded to OS5 tonight so fingers crossed it works. 

 

Thank you everyone :smileyhappy:

Re: OS 6 - uses more battery and slow to response

Same as everyone else...battery life was non existent and it would hang all the time.  Actually thought it was the battery, got a new phone for $50 and turned out it was the OS.  What a waste of money.  Downgraded to 5.0.  Now I have two phones.  Nice.

How do you downgrade to the previous OS?

Is downgrading within OS 6 effective? build 1875 working out for people?

Re: OS 6 - uses more battery and slow to respons

Just as everybody else .... it seems this new version is not working and its pushing us to charge our phone 3 times a day ... that sometimes we cant ... i even have a spare batter y when I travel.. dont even want to open it  to check mails.

 

 

I will downgrade the version, based on the link posted on this conversation, to see if it works .... Somedy said that you can download it from the BB desktop but I couldnt find the option on diveces .. it doesnt give you the option .. so I will use the link somebody posted to see if it works ...   I miss my old phone running 2 days without charging ....

 

Just open this one from the box a week ago .. and already will have to downgrade it ... .
