Blackberry 9780 battery life (Need help!!!)

[ Edited ]

Hello everyone!


I have a question about the battery life on my 9780....

So like.. I have the screen brightness turned to 0 , bluetooth and wifi are off, GPS and Location are both off.

I frequently use it on 2G when im BBM'ing , I have no Facebook, Twitter or any other social apps that could drain battery life this fast..


My battery goes down 10% per half an hour when I use 3G outside in an area where the signal is good... And i don't use youtube or anything else that's battery draining, just reading the news or other normal things like that.


My BB is running on v6.0.0.570 (Bundle 2534, Platform


Besides that, Before this Blackberry I had another 9780 which was broken and send to Dynafix to fix it, the battery life was perfect, like 5% per hour on heavy use, although i don't know which platform it was running on etc etc..

So this new BB i got from them probably got updated software (complete refurbished unit).


Anyone know what to do.. I don't wanna sit on 2G all day!!


Edit 1 : The software itself is also slow and sluggish when using the search function it types double letters or types the second letter before the first one etc etc...


One day I was downloading a theme from app world and i was trying it out when suddenly I got a white screen saying app error 507 and my blackberry would take ages to restart, It would stop like 3/4 the way for like 2 minutes then resume.. and I still have this problem, I've tried reloading the same OS.. doesn't help at all..


Sometimes when I try to change display pictures on BBM, I go to pictures and there is not a single pictures that's on my 2GB memory card..There's not even a map for it.. As if it doesn't recognize my memory card.. It happens frequently and this all gets very annoying.. If i send my phone for a repair I won't get it back for like 6-8 weeks and I need my phone really bad and they won't lend me one @ the store.. so that pretty much fails -_-,

and the phone itself is not the best quality to be honest, the backplate is like moving really bad up and down like 4-5 millimetres, the buttons squeek alot (menu button, trackpad and the back button) and my phone never dropped so that could not be the cause of all this.


Help greatly appreciated!
