Blackberry Curve 8530

How can I know what is using the battery on my phone? I use Pandora frequently, and try to make sure to shut Pandora down.

Re: Blackberry Curve 8530

On the home screen press and hold the menu button to see what apps pop up. If you have more than 5 you need to shut them down.

Re: Blackberry Curve 8530

Unless you have third party apps that are meant to run in the background, the only running apps should be Home Screen, Browser, BBM, Phone, and Messages. Open up the other three and then use Menu >Close/Exit to close them down.

If you are in the habit of using the red phone/end key to shut down apps you will have many apps running.
