Head thee over to Crackberry, download Sachup/Sachibar, grab the T-Mobile debrick images (310 260 for country/carrier code) and then use cap to flash the radio only. This is non-destructive (does NOT wipe data) and should address the problem.
And while you're at it raise hell with your carrier as what they should do is push an earlier radio file to take care of this problem. There IS value to the longer testing cycles that US carriers tend to use in that they freuqently find this sort of problem before you get nailed with it.

I have read in a few places that some of the SD cards consume huge amounts of battery and are not going into a proper low power state when idle. Might be worth looking into that too.
I have heard of battery issues and I am getting well over 24 hours with normal use of my phone. If I start using it heavily of course, it goes down but I am pretty happy with the battery life. It's comparable with, if not better than, the iPod phone.

Has there been an update elsewhere? bought this last Saturday and still draining...
i wish i didn't update to 10.1 if it would cause this battery drain issue (which I read was already fixed in a 10.0 updaye), but to be able to use skype, the device had to be on 10.1... so i went 10.1!
I've even done a reload device software to see if it fixes the issue but no go.
I have to resort to turning off wifi when not in use and set screen time out to the minimum, but using some battery monitor app, it's still a steep drop in battery charge from 100 to 70% in just 4 hours, with very minimal use (1 missed phone call, a few sms, some light kobo for 15 mins, some browsing, gmail and yahoo sync), and no youtube, games, other apps...
pls bb, fix this issue soon

People, people, people...*smh*....
Unfortunately, it seems that the Z10 is a faster learner than its owners. When the Z10 was brand new out of the box, the battery life was terrible. It wouldn't last 8 hours with heavy use. After a few weeks, the phone figured it out, I guess, and the battery life improved to be able to handle a full day of heavy use as well as any phone out there. The issue fixed itself and became a non issue. Fast forward to the much anticipated update. The update improved many things. It was a great first update. However, it seemed to reset the battery. Battery life was horrible again, just like out if the box. But after a few weeks, it has worked itself out and is back to being able to handle a full workload.
So when the next update comes out, let's give the battery a few weeks to recover before we freak out. Just keep a charger nearby, maybe even a spare battery, and deal with it for a short time. It's worth the wait. Hopefully the next update won't have this problem. But it's a small thing to deal with when compared to how smooth the Z10 is.
Keep it up BlackBerry.
