Re: Battery draining way too fast

I'd been thinking about doing a complete reboot just to clear it up. While my data's all synced with Outlook, so won't lose that, glad to see the other steps. Didn't know you could back up 3rd party stuff. Appreciate you're working with me on this.

Re: Battery draining way too fast

click on the menu button and then close   It is always good to close out apps and not have them running.

there are many ways you can keep battery draining as well as having your BB run great.

 

I can give you these tips to help you out.

 

keep your backlight set at 10  and 30 sec

you will find this in Options under screen and keyboard  click on save and then close out on it

 

keeping the cache in the browser clear too helps  to do this  when in the browser

click on the menu key  then options

click on cache operations  and then keep clicking  then close and it will clean memory

 

another thing you can do is clear the  Event Log 

click on the alt button and while on it  type  LGLG

then the menu button and click on clear log  then delete  two items will still show but your don't want to delete those

 

there is a free app in BB Appl world called  Quick Pull   it is free and  you can set a time for it.

I do a battery pull with this app daily   it is good for your BB  but when I add an app I will do a manual battery pull for a reset.  I also will do it once a week because it is good for the BB 

 

also good for the memory is to delete your emails and text messages when you are done with them

On your BB go to www.blackberry.com/appworld.

 

You do need a BB data plan.

Re: Battery draining way too fast

It depends.  Many times if it's the first time you've installed the app then you don't have to reboot.  However, almost any time you install an updated version of the same app you do need to reboot.  The device will prompt you to reboot if it needs it.
