I'm having a couple of problems with my berry.
First of which, it won't keep its charge. The battery lasts only 8 hours or so.
Second, I can send and receive texts. Apparently my pins have been sent but I'm not getting many pins, emails, facebook things back. I received replies from the pins I sent last night midday today.
This morning there was an hourglass animation at the center of my screen every 10 seconds. It would flash and dissappear. I yanked the battery out because thats the usual fix for everything but the battery drains just as quickly and still not receiving pins.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I ended up wiping the memory and thus far it looks like its working.
So the hourglass means I have too many apps open? I only installed 2 3rd party ones the previous time. And only managed to get 8 hours of life which is weird in my opinion.
What should I avoid in order to not have this happen again?

I have a battery drained problem...
Every time I put it on, it says "Battery drained. Shutting down handheld".
It does not charge my battery, nor a new battery I tried with.
It says no charge, but the battery is charged since it works with other devices.
I've updated my BB8320 to the 4,6 OS, but it still have the problem.
Please advise. Regards.
