Bold is using lot of battery (full loaded after 2hours empty)

[ Edited ]



i've got now my blackberry for about a month, and as from today the battery has just the capacity for 2 hours (even if i'm doing anything with it)...


it's very strange but it seems that the device is doing something but i don't have a clue what it is doing...??

got this icon every to seconds in the middle of the screen as it is loading something..


reboot device => no solution it keeps on going...

now i've tried to find out what's happening but don't find anything


hope you guys can help me or have a solution..


PS: i've tried already a wipe of my device might be any setting i thought so .. (but also didn't help) 


Thanks in advance,

Check this link to better battery life



Which software version have you installed on your device?

Some users can improve the battery life after upgrading the blackberry bold to version

where Xcist (another contributor ) made a perfect description to do it
