I just bought my Blackberry bold 4 days ago and the battery life is down to less than 3 hours with almost no usage.
For some reason, the phone is surely not fast and always keeps processing sth. Moreover, the phone is warmer than usual at all times and gets hot as soon as I try to charge it.
I'm going to stick with my backup and trusted Nokia till this is resolved!

I have had my Bold 9900 for two weeks now and came across this post.
Basically, you have to go to your network connections, then mobile network, and switch from3g/H+ & 2G to just 3G/H+ or 2G. Your battery will last you 10x more.
The battery drains because it's faster internet connection, and if you have other apps running like Facebook or Twitter, or games, or even your little security vault, you need to close them down, and keep the apps you are using, running. Some apps like your texts, phone call, and BBM will always be running, but just hold your menu key down and close the other apps down. That will also save you. You only use the 3G/H+ & 2G if you need to google something, or get quick access to your browser.
