Is your bluetooth turned on cos when i got my pearl (8120) the battery life was awful due to my wifi and bluetooth being enabled.
Since i have turned them off my battery can last up to a week if im not using it that much.

The battery life on Blackberries is what I have found to be the con of owning this phone.
I have noticed by turning the LED off, it gives me a little more life. But regardless, it usually sleeps on the charger nightly if I want daily use out of it.

I just got my BB 8120 yesterday and I was told (after the fact) that its good practice to let your new phone charge for 24 hours. Of course I wasn't told this by my Wireless company... I was told this by a friend of mine that was told this by a rep at a store location....
I just got off the phone with my Wireless Tech Support, and they said that it doesn't hurt to let it charge, so that the battery learns to build it's charge as it goes along. I was told that in essence, you should be able to get at least 4 days of use out of the phone.
So... we will see. I will post back and let you guys know if it worked. If not I will be returning the phone for replacement in a week
