I had the same problem with my Bold 9790. If you turn-off 'Wi-Fi' under Manage Connections at the top of the screen it dramatically increases the battery life. The person at the Vodafone store told me that the device is constantly looking for a Wi-Fi signal if this is turned on. Hope this helps.

I GIVE UP.
I brought my 9790 in the service center, 1st time, they reinstalled it with a fresh OS. In less than a day of usage, bang,... all the problems are still there. Now they will send it to RIM for 14 working days to get it fixed. But i doublt the problems will be fixed. To enumerate:
I think this is a crappy version of BB. Now, i'm using my backup 9780, I did not had the chance to charge it in ful, so I left home with 85% battery. It is now 5:20pm here in my timezone, with already 200 emails received and 20 emails sent, considering viewing excel files, browsing facebook, reading and replying to notifcations, and whatsapp, I still have 40% battery left. Now this is the kind of BB I think we are talking about.
BB97980 beats BB9790's a$$ 100 =1.
RIM, you should make a product recall, and give us another version of BB.

I am writing here after trying all possible ways to get my phone fixed. I am using BlackBerry 9790 from past 10 months, but from past 6 months my phone has gone for a toss.. Horrible battery backup and it restarts again and again, actually gets into a restart loop. Tough to manage, one cant rely, battery drains out in 15 minutes at times. Top of that service center guys are least bothered to solve the problem. They will just reload the software every time you go there. Honest review: Phone : 8/10, Company 5/10, after sales services 1/10.
Please help me how can I get my phone fixed up, this would be a great help..

Have tried them, and the effect is not startling. However, that isn't really the point. These types of phones should be designed with a decent battery life so that you don't need to restrict the way you use them.
