Re: battery drained faster now in my bb curve 9220

Hi akash121

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Community Forums

 

                           Some time our BlackBerry devices may feel warm say a long browsing session , playing games ,countinous download or while charging.Please press and hold the Menu for a few seconds, it will pop up a screen which will show all running programs in the background ,generally five will always there ( Home, BBM, Message,Phone , Browser ) look if any other apps. are running.

 

Always try to Close Applications Correctly - Avoid using the End key to close applications as this simply minimizes the application and leaves it running in the background. Instead, press the Menu key, select the Close or Exit option to exit the application.Don't leave your Browser open when not in use.If programs run in the background it will also lead to overheating and also quick battery drainage.Please have a look at those Article I am sure it will help you a lot in overcoming your problems :

My Device: Curve 9220

Curve 9220 - shuts down by itself and doesn't want to restart

Hi.

I bought my 9220 last year and a few days later, the data signal started dropping to zero intermittently. I had to turn the "mobile network" off and on, and then I would get a torrent of pending BBMs, whatsapp messages, emails, so on :smileyhappy:

 

Around 4 months ago the device started getting intolerably warm. I mean, just like you're holding a steaming cup of coffee in your hands. The heat seemed to emanate from the point where the battery meets the connectors.

 

Then a couple of months back the phone started switching off all by itself. Sometimes after pressing the power/end call button repeatedly, the phone would lazily power back on. Other times, there was a faint red glow inside the trackpad (some light they have in there, I guess).

 

Now the interesting part - I need to cover the trackpad with my thumb for a few seconds for the phone to turn back on.

 

After resuming, I would get a yellow/red battery indicator, implying that the battery was close to popping. This, when I'd only just taken it off the charger at close to 80%.

 

Anyhow, I got my battery changed AND got my OS updated. A few days it worked fine. But then the problem came back. Now I don't get the low battery after the device restarts. But I get the weird message - that the battery's too low to use radio - even while the indicator shows the charge at around 50-60.

 

Yes, the heating up still continues.

I love the berry for all its conveniences and would love if you guys have a suggestion. Have half a mind to send it in to the service centre but knowing the time and cost you guys take to turn a device around, i guess i would be better off buying an android. Unless you guys can come up with something.
