I got my phone yesterday. I charged it all night and got up and used it, then it went down to 80% by using it for 30 mins in the morning, then i topped the charge back up to 100% and went to work. The battery literally only lasted 7/8 hours? Is this really what it's meant to be like? And also I cannot update to OS 7.1... I'm in the UK, can anyone tell me how to do so? Thanks

I am on my third 9900 as replaced on warranty thanks to Rogers. The first had a scroll failure that was thermal-related. It woiuld drop to the bottom of whatever menu was displayed. As it heated up, it got worse.
That aside, this pathetic battery life is common to all three 9900 phones.
There may exist some software that kills all apps running in the background.
The 4-dot icon next to the signal strength icon is evidence that your blackberry is in constant communication with the RIM mother ship. How much data and juice is that consuming?
There is a UK company that builds a a 3x battery but it i$ expen$ive and changes the slim feature of the 9900 with its high profile backing plate.
When is a cell phone not a cell phone? When the battery is dead...

Welcome to the nighmare world of the Blackberry Bold 9900: the battery life is simply shocking and the performance is unacceptably poor. You will need to trawl through this site, like wading through treacle, to find out that thousands of others have been similarly afflicted. You may also find links to OS7.01 but don't expect Blackberry to help you in any meaningful way: not only is the performance of this phone a disappointment, it is an absolute disgrace and, potentially, a commercial disaster. Blackberry should hang their heads in shame.
I have had my phone a month. I generally charge it at midday (if near any plug) and routinely switch off 3G (no chance of running social networking apps: far too rubbish for that) so, in the end, have paid a large chunk of cash for a 'smart phone' that just isn't very smart. Enjoy.
