Blackberry Curve 9360

Hi..I am from India. I have recently bought a Blackberry Curve 9360. I have two issues with this:


1. The battery life is very limited. By the mid of the day, half of the battery charge is gone. I have started taking my charger everywhere now Smiley Sad

2. How to activate / install fm radio in my mobile.


Help appreciated! Thanks...

Re: Blackberry Curve 9360

Ad 1) maybe try to set network mode to 2g (disable 3g), turn off wifi etc - check if it helps.

Install Resource Monitor http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/130385/?lang=en 


Ad 2) I think you must update OS to 7.1 (BTW I think it also helps with a battery life)

Re: Blackberry Curve 9360

1. Get a charger to top off the charge during the day. Do not drain these batteries repeatedly each day, it kills the battery quicker and causes overall poor battery life. Even 10-15 minutes of charge will get you to the end of the day fine.


2. Yes, upgrade to an operating system of or greater
