Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


Well all I can say is working with the 9900 and using it heavily I get more than 12 hours. And I have been running OS 7.0.0.440 for the full month I have had the phone.

The OS will improve over time and I believe OS 7.1 is in testing as well.

People be patient.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


I will update this thread if I come across. A new OS that's worth using but its been 2-3 weeks since anything appeared which is very odd.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


Ok our wishes have been answered. An operator in canada has just released 7.0.0.474 officially. I am testing it now. Will keep the thread updated on battery life after tomorrow.

Ok, as I have posted above .474 is running on my 9900 since last night. Seems to be stable and battery has very little drop overnight. Looking good

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


I use everything. In the house I have wifi and 3g on and in the car 3g and bluetooth.

I run the OS shrank but that shouldn't effect battery. It has social feeds running with facebook andf twitter all the time. So fairly heavy use.
