Ive had my BB Curve 8330 Sprint since Dec 12. 08,,,,, and now recently my battery life seems to be getting shorter and shorter.  Im wondering if some of the apps are causing this? I have GPS Tracker as one of the apps.   Am I supposed to wait till the battery is completely drained first before recharging it?

Please advice. Thanks in advance!!!!

 


 

Did you recently update to the new OS ver 4.5?....I did last week and since the install my battery needs recharge by 5-6 P.M., when prior to the upgrade would last all evening, only needing recharge at bed time. After the download / install I had to reset numerous settings to get it working the way it did prior. I wonder if I missed the one that is killing the battery. Any ideas would help me too.
