Re: new curve 9360 battery

Try the following tips:

1. Change your network from 2G & 3G to 2G.
2. Change your Options-display-screen display- backlight to 10 & backlight timeout to 20 secs
3. Change your Options-device-location settings-location services OFF
4. Dont keep any unnecessary application running in the background and exit it whenver not needed.

I tried the above changes and believe me, now I get almost double the backup when I was almost fed up and planning to change my 3 month old 9360! Now Iam satisfied.

Re: new curve 9380 battery cover

unfortunately, only iPhone has those and not BBs due to the charger point placement. In BBs, its on the side whereas iPhones have it on the bottom. Alternatively, you can try using a 1500mH additional Gold battery available on e-bay. Though I have not used it yet, but sounds good. else you can try the tips mentioned above in my post to enhance the battery life.

Re: new curve 9360 battery

@Bunty21

Did you do the upgrade? If you didn't it doesn't change much the battery behavior. It was (I think), a glitch in the OS script that drained the battery.

Now if you did upgrade the software, it doesn't change much either. I can spend all day with WiFi on, 3G&2G Network, Location ON, and the phone still has battery untiil midnight (I leave at 6).

Re: new curve 9360 battery

@PetitJean.....

Hmmm.. i did upgrade it.. but my operator had only 7.0.255 from the basic 7.0.0. whereas in other countries, its 7.1. So I believe it made difference by the setting changes. But any ways, i am ok with the performace now. I will gradually switching back to the defaults (location on, 2G to 3G, backlight...) to see the difference!

Re: new curve 9360 battery

Currently my battery last for about 10hrs with normal usage and screen at 10. Was very disappointed with the battery performance and now I will need to bring a portable charger around with me.

Anyone with OS 7.1 but battery able to last longer? As I read from previous user it seems that the battery life last more than a day after updating to OS.
