BB Torch 9800 - Freezing + Battery Life?

Basically phone used to ocassionally freeze, wasn't an issue.. now every time I 'click' something like on bbm, or open up a folder that timer comes up where I have to wait about 5 seconds every time I select something or type something. Battery life is also significantly worse than before literally it dies in about 5 hours from being fully charged?

 

What can I do?

Re: BB Torch 9800 - Freezing + Battery Life?

first

Try a Battery pull please, with the BlackBerry device powered ON, remove the battery 15 seconds and then reinsert the battery to reboot device. This will clear all cache like rebooting a PC. Then try again and see if your problem persists.

What OS are you on? On your device, type in a new message MYVER and a space after to see and report back please.

 

On device go to Options, Device, Application Management is a great way to see what your apps are doing with your CPU usage on #Torch. Just slide top bar to CPU and see what is going on. Also touch the CPU menu to see other time variables. I found out that an app was eating away CPU cycles on mine

But before when I had 6.000.000 I think it lasted longer but now I'm on 6.000.600. I charge it all night.
