Blackberry curve 9360 Battery Life

i just got the blackberry curve 9360 a week ago and the battery doesnt last for a half day! its my secondary phone so i barely use it for phone calls, just the normal bbm,emails and some text.. i rarely browse or use applicaitons and i always close on exit. i had the curve 8520 before and the battery was more than fine! 

i read in several posts elsewehere this is a common problem, i need to confirm from the authentic bb community.

Re: Blackberry curve 9360 Battery Life

Having same problem but with my Curve 9370. It's so annoying I have to carry my charger with me everywhere!
What's the point of having useful apps if the phone battery won't even last half a day? 


Or perhaps I'm doing something wrong? I already am turning off all the apps when I am not using them, set LED light to lowest, and use only silent mode on the phone. I do text a lot, but only make on average 3 phone calls a day.


Is there no BB customer service centre where we can speak to someone about this & get someone to explain why this is happening?

Re: Blackberry curve 9360 Battery Life

Yes mine is exactly the same! having to take my charger everywhere with me! Yes i use the apps but rightly said (as above) whats the point of being able to have the apps if you cant use them on a phone with no battery!! Very annoying!

Re: Blackberry curve 9360 Battery Life

Having a serious battery issue also, using 9360 on AT&T and provider has not released the new 7.1 update.  I cannot go to sleep and wake up with battery, I go to sleep with a full charge and when I wake up the phone has shut down because there is not enough battery left.  I have no choice but to set my phone to 2G to conserve on battery and this is so annoying.  I can barely get 6 hours of use on one charge with minimal usage.  This new 9360 battery really blows!!!!
