Re: HELP Bold 9000 os 5.0 battery problem

I am still running the 4.6 OS and afraid to upgrade to the 5.0.  Seems like I've been reading about problems some have been having with the 5.0 OS.  I figured that I would just wait it out a while longer and upgrade when all the kinks are ironed out.  I just got my phone 3 weeks ago and don't even want to fix what isn't broken, if you know what I mean.  Good luck and I hope you get your problem fixed.

Re: HELP Bold 9000 os 5.0 battery problem

I've just recently updated my OS to v5.0 and have been noticing some poor battery life and also my phone gets very warm.  A full charge is only lasting me half a day.  I have read in other posts that there are a few people with similar issues, but I'm not sure if there is a fix or not.

 

If anyone has any new information, please let me know.

Re: HELP Bold 9000 os 5.0 battery problem

I noticed the battery getting hot and reduced battery life after upgrading to OS 5.  At first I blamed the OS, but the battery performance continued to get worse, and I decided it was just an old battery dying.  The phone is 2.5 years old, and the battery has been charged over 700 times, so that pushes it to the end of the rated battery life. 

 

You can get a new non-OEM replacement battery on Amazon.com for $5.

Re: HELP Bold 9000 os 5.0 battery problem

I have the same problem; I just upgraded to 5.0.0.1036 and the battery life is being sucked dry after 2 hours and the handset heats up. I have four new batteries and I'm ready to pull out my hair. Any suggestions, please and thank you.

Re: HELP Bold 9000 os 5.0 battery problem

I reduced my battery problem by going to HTC Inspire ANDROID.  Too frustrating to stick with Bold. Smiley Sad
