Battery issues

I've had my BB for about a year. Most recently it seems to overheat, and needs to be charged about 3 times a day, taking up to 3 hours to fully charge.  Anyone else experiencing this?  Any suggestions?

Maybe you should invest in a new battery!

Re: Battery issues

I was thinking that as well, but with the phone itself getting so hot, I was wondering if it's a phone issue.  Anyone else experiencing this?

Re: Battery issues

You're right, it might be something wrong with the phone.
But its cheaper to change the battery than the phone to find out. Anyway, from what I know about electrical appliances you should be careful when its overheating, you don't want your house to burn down because of a broken battery!
Ask to try the battery first in the shop, say that you want to find out if the phone is working and you need to check first before you buy it, if no-one has a better advice?!

Re: Battery issues

I experienced same issue with my BB Torch. Make sure all apps are closed (by default should have basic 5 apps open). Also upgrades waiting in the wings will cause it, too. Check for upgrades waiting for downloading and installation.
