It works! My battery is now lasting longer!
Go onto the location settings and switched off the location then save the profile.

In case all of you posters that have complained over the Past year haven't figured it out yet -- it's not just you, the 9790 battery life is pathetic, it does overheat, it's not fixable, & the people that should be responding on the support boards are by now probably all laid off from RIM. Are you getting it, there's a reason their smartphone market share is now less than 5% & sinking quickly. How disparate do you have to be to put a product like this POS on the market before it works as stated, & then not even have the time, concern or resources to come back & clean up the mess! Very sad inded as I've been a loyal & enthusiastic Blackberry user since 1999.
Hi and Welcome to the Community!
While most of your facts are valid, one portion I do take as a personal affront. The highlighted portion is not even close to correct, and is quite frankly insulting to the kind volunteers who give of their own free time here to try and help other users get the most out of their BBs (despite whatever deficiencies that may exist). I, for one, began participating here several years ago, and am not nor ever have been a RIM employee (and I know, factually, that the same applies to other regular participants here). Please note that I do not wish to engage you in any argument...rather, I simply wish to present what I understand to be the accurate information on that point (for others who may come along and be interested in reading this thread).
The rest of what you say, well the facts cannot be argued with...though it's always best to cite sources rather than toss facts out in the hopes that others will trust you enough to believe...so, here's a citation in case anyone is interested:
Your suppositions, of course, could be argued over...but, being suppositions rather than facts, it's not really worth the time to do so.
