No, mine charges can last 3+ days. 

Make sure that all apps have been closed properly. First of all, let's see what's running on your phone.  Press and hold the menu key for a second or two.  It's the BB key to the left of the trackpad.  What you'll see is a list of apps that are currently running on your phone.  Some of these, such as Home, Messages, Browser, BBM, cannot be shut down, but many others can.  If you see many other apps in that list, go to one of them.  Once it's opened, press the menu key and select Close or Exit.  This will properly shut down the app.  Note that pressing the red phone button does not shut down the app, it minimizes it to the background where it continues to run and utilize battery power.

Once you've had it for a while and it's bogged down with many apps running at once, you can expect 1-2 days on a full charge.

Just a quick note, any app that runs off of GPS (most notably Google Maps) is a serious battery killer.  Beware of that.

Thanks

There should only be 5 apps that are unclosable. They are browser, blackberry messenger, home, phone and messages, which I'm sure you are aware of. If anything else is open, it is sucking battery life.

I would give the new OS a couple of days and if your battery is still not giving you a couple of days, I would try a reload of the OS. Sometimes during a download, there is a hick-up that misses part of the programming. It's happened to me before as well.

Re: Latest OS 6.0.0.600

Vodafone has released OS .666 for the Torch (and other devices).

Something about that release number I just don't care for.  Smiley Happy

Re: Latest OS 6.0.0.600

Loaded up ver 600 from Vodafone a few days ago. Battery drains in less than a day.

 

No extra apps are open!!

 

I see that Telus has v 6.0.0.695, but I'll have to go to a PC (can't load these bundles from a MacBook with the Mac Desktop software) -- unless someone has a way around that.

 

Got a new battery, since my wife is using the Torch -- but that drains just as fast. Seems that once in a while something happens and drains the battery down to zero _quickly_. Don't know what is doing that. It's also happened on other models that I've used in the past; at least it wasn't frequent.
