Welcome to the club, 1/2 a day and its calling for a recharge, my Torch lasted up to 3 days, and want to kill the 9900, use the bluetooth, I run bluetooth in my vehicle, 4 hours is the best you will get.
Have we bought a white elephant??

I bought my phone a couple of weeks back and was seriously disappointed with the battery, I was thinking of going back to my trusty 9780! The phone was charged fully in the morning and was sitting at 40% by midday with moderate usage. I had tried all the battery saving tricks with no joy.
I then read that if you stick to the default home screen pics supplied then it has a dramatic effect on the battery life. I had a hi-res pic of my baby girl on the home screen, so I removed and went back to the normal pics and guess what... I am getting 2 days easy out of my battery, I can't believe this has worked! I am much happier with the phone now

Ok... seems that everybody here has the same problem and if we report more and more of the same stories it will have no effect... not one single official answer here. So RIM is trying to sit & wait, like they always did and this is why they are now where they are...
... maybe we could start up a HOTLIST of consumers that a not longer willing to live with that situation. I really dont know which offical way we could send that list and get all names and maybe PINS together but if anybody has an idea - POST IT!!!
What do you think?? If not WE do anything RIM will not even move their **bleep** either - Like seen on the 3 day fallout of the BIS/BES services.

I had an issue with my battery right from the start. So much so that I was about to return my phone. I decided to reload the OS to my phone and it appears to have worked. Funny thing is it wasn't even a different OS, I just reloaded the exact same one. It might be worth a try.
I hope that's been helpful to everyone.
