I've had a Blackberry curve for about 5 months now, and I always had battery issues. It never lasted more than 12 hours and sometimes wouldn't make it to 8. The antenna would frequently disconnect for low battery level, but the phone wouldn't turn off for even 12 hours after that. I use it mostly for messaging and browsing, few phone calls. When I returned it to get it fixed, I was told it had no battery problems.
In the last couple weeks the phone has just gone crazy: the antenna keeps disconnecting for low charge, even if the phone is fully charged. Battery drops by 50% in a couple minutes if I surf the web, but if I remove and plug back in the battery it gets fixed.
thank you all.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
I recommend that you attempt to boot into Safe Mode:
It may take you multiple attempts to get the ESC key sequence (press/release/hold) correct, so be patient. When successfully into Safe Mode, think carefully...what happened just before this behavior started? A new app? An update? A Theme? Something else? Think carefully as the smallest change could be causal...and attempt to undo whatever that was.
It is also possible that your battery or BB has experienced a problem...to test, this sequence is needed:
The results of this will indicate if it's your BB or your battery that has the problem.
Good luck and let us know!
