Re: new curve 9360 battery

Another one here.

 

I consider myself a low user, i only use the phone to answer maybe make 1 or 2 calls a day and write 1 text message a week.

 

I used to have a 3g Pearl and i would get about 1 week of battery life from it on 3g mode, but i dropped it Smiley Sad

 

So unfortunately I bought a 9360, and i don't even get 2 days out of it before the battery dies, that's with data turned off, wireless turned off, bluetooth turned off, gps turned off, 2g mode, data services disabled........THAT'S PATHETIC!

 

If i make a phone call it heats up so hot like it's going to catch on fire.

 

I had it replaced twice and i gave up and made them swap it for a Bold 9930.

 

Now I get 5-6 days battery life which is much better, but the reception on the bold is terrible compared with the Pearl and the 9360......sigh, i think it's time to go to another manufacturer.

Re: new curve 9360 battery

Although the number of complaints do assure that the problem with curve 9360 battery is a genuine one,yet,just wrote in to create a bit more pressure on RIM to get dis mess and their downgrading repo all cleaned up...it boasted of a new type of battery which cud withstand heavy usage for 2 days "easily".

Forget 2 days u'd b lucky if it lasts for half a day.

Plus it gets heated...really heated...also noticed dat the battery levels go down at an evn faster rate wen it is so...

So all d owners of dis new curve please keep d complaints pouring in...RIM must hear...its high tym...

 

And al d pages goin arnd d net suggesting things for improvement of battery lyf are of very little use,if any....

Re: new curve 9360 battery

[ Edited ]

recently purchased 9360 as i read on RIMs website that its standby time is more or less as same as 9780.

im really disappointed as the battery is really poor.doesnt even last 12hours.

recently, i found on the internet that this heating and battery issue is mostly on .319 firmware.

(you can check on options>device>about device versions . it must v 7.0.0.319 ).

a new firmware is out on the RIM site .474 and .530 and many have tried and they are happy with the battery life.

i upgraded the firmware to .530 yesterday .its too soon to make out the battery life .i will update on the results.

hope this helps! cheers!

you can google  crackberry forums.thats where i found the solution!

 

RIM ..your going down really soon . what a solution u have given on your site for saving battery,

heres whats written :

close all apps when not in use,switch off wifi and bluetooth , switch off fone when not in use.reduce the brightness.HOLY COW! if i have to switch off all the things ,then why on earth did i purchase dis phone?
