New phone or new battery???

I've had my bb for a year. I constantly use my media, like 24/7 videos and music. Recently while im texting or on the phone it just turns off . Sometimes the screen turns off but you can kind of see it fading off. The battery life is never on red, usually more than half.  I take off the battery for a couple min, put it back on, and it turns on. But then if i try  to text or call it turns off.


I would think the battery would show that its almost dead. Should i just invest in a new battery or is it time for a new bb??

Re: New phone or new battery???

Hi and welcome to the forums,

If you battery charges to 100% in the mornings, and 50% when you have to pull the battery.

Given you use of the device it may well be time to get another.

Here is an excellent article on battery life by jsandrs:
