My Blackberry style doesn't hold a charge

With my first one I have tried two batteries. Than I bought another blackberry style at sprint. I have had this phone for 2 weeks and my phone dies in 5-6 hours when not using it just as my first one did. I have nothing downloaded. I have made sure that I close my programs. No aps. Have not changed any settings. Ideas????

Hey srocereto311,


Welcome to the forums.


Battery life can vary depending on usage. This article should help to maximize battery power: 


How to maximize free space and battery power on the BlackBerry smartphone

Also if you do not use any location services you can turn this feature off by going to Options - Device - Location Settings.

Re: My Blackberry style doesn't hold a charge

Mine isn't that bad, but after a night's charge it gets dangerously low 12 hours later. That's with maybe ten minutes of phone calls, a few emails and playing around at appworld trying to find some apps, which seems to really drain it. I'm blaming the poor battery life on browser useage, which could be directly related to Sprint network. I can almost see the battery indicator go down.
