I have notice that the battery life sucks like no other I've ever seen but I did get a replacement from the warranty center. After receiving it, I charged it over night then used my old battery to;
Lower my display light to 10%, unchecked auto dim light, each time while backing out of an application, press the menu button the press close, not use vibration unless I really need it and also only use the led light to inform me of messages and emails plus I am not a virtual socializing person so I don't have to worry about social feeds and I don't talk much on the phone but text quite a bit since these devices do heat up and try not to use Bluetooth headsets as much since it does deplete the battery as well as using wifi. I may be missing some steps I took and hope these were a little helpful. But it is up to your personal preference and what you use your device for.
I did all these steps after I wiped the handheld clean minus memory card, deleted all my backups, uninstalled all desktop manager information, created a new BB ID and started from scratch. For some reason, this helped my battery, the new one to last a little longer. It's only been a day since I did this so I will update this information later if I am proven wrong. BTW, it is always helpful with any of these new devices to have two or more batteries. Yes, it is ridiculous to have to do this but helpful when not near a power source.
I would like to know how to get the battery percentage to show on the homescreen though. Back in the day, there was a code to do this on the older models so I know there has to be a way to do this with the newer versions. I will update my findings after talking to gurus who are very knowledgeable of these issues.

Since I am new to blackberries again, could you please tell me how to get the versiond you are speaking of? I went to software update and desktop manager to see if there were any updates and it tells me that everything is up to date.
