Jet, you can go to Blackberry Apps on your PC and do a search for Quickpull. When you tell it to install it will ask for an e-mail that your BB can access. It'll send you a link by e-mail. You'll need to install the Blackberry App program before installing the Quickpull link. Once I realized that, it worked just like every other program.

Correct. You only get a solution option in your own thread. We really shouldn't be hijacking someone else's thread, anyway.

While I'd already marked the Problem Solved button, I found a couple of other items. Turns out the new Google app (which they'd changed around the time I was having problems) didn't shut down by leaving the application. You had to hit the left button and click Exit. So it was staying online continuously. That helped a lot, but I just finished switching the ball out, and my power usage dropped like a rock. Suspect there was a bad connection in there that was shorting. New ball only cost $10, so cheap fix.

That's the first time I've ever heard of a trackball draining the battery. I suspect Google was more an issue than the trackball.

I think you mean standby mode right? Yes it does help batter life. The holster also puts your phone into standby with the inbuilt magnet
