Re: Latest software for bold 9900

First off, the 9900 is not known for stellar battery life.  That being said, your battery level should not be dropping that quickly.  More than likely, the reason is that your battery meter has not had a chance to adjust to the new OS.  Whenever a new OS is installed on your phone, the phone needs time to adjust to it, to get used to it.  I've used Bundle 2406 and didn't have any major issues with it.  I would suggest you try to cope with the shortened battery life for a day or two and see if it levels off within that time.



I hope that helps you.  Smiley Happy
