Pete, How long does your BB Q10 last on a full charge (without a battery pull done)?
M, I have never had to pull my battery.
I leave my Q10 on all day and then recharge each evening when perhaps one square is no longer illuminated (thus indicating probably 80 - 90% of my battery still with a good charge).
I have WiFi, NFC, etc. turned off but leave 4G LTE on at all times and do occasional browing and exchange fairly frequent emails during the day.
Our second Q10 has the same performance characteristics except it is recharged only when necessary, say, every 2 or 3 days.
. . . . . Pete

Thanks John !!
When I read further, I did see that you'd corrected the model number.
Hope that the company takes some of the suggestions, fixes up the sw, and we'll all be better off.

Pete, may be everyone here just got a bad batch of units? How long does your BB Q10 last on a full charge (without a battery pull done)? Mine lasts 10 hours with a battery pull and 6 hours without a battery pull!! It has been driving me crazy. I leave for work at 6am, it dies before lunch!!! I'm taking my Q10 to Rogers for repair, hopefully they will be able to fix it.
I'm not Pete, but, I will jump in to say I had the same probems with I first got the BBQ last month. And, I was pretty disappointed because I'd heard so much about the Q10 and it's great battery. What has worked for me has been to turn off both wireless and data services when I'm not using them. So, most times, only phone and texting are on; if I want to use data or check email, I turn data back on. Now, I can get 3 days without charging; although, I admit I am not a heavy user of data.
I also saw someone post earlier about the screen going black during calls or when a call ended. That also happened to me - a lot - early on. I was ready to return the phone. I finally figured it had to do with the screen protector I was using (I used one of my old ipod touch screen protectors and just cut it to fit the Q10). I found out by accident that I wasn't getting that black screen when I didn't have that protector on. After getting the BBQ screen protector, I only get the black screen now when you're supposed to, I guess - which the phone is up to my ear, or after 30 seconds (but then I just swipe up to get the phone screen back).
I will say, though, that, if I could do it again or if I had read some of these comments before, I may not have gotten the Q10. But, this is my first BB and I didn't know what to expect, so, from my perspective, I think it's nice now that I have the kinks worked out. But, now that I know what I'm missing or what could have been, I hope BB will make some changes!
Edited to add: Plus, I don't think I will ever buy a phone when it first comes out again...I paid $199 for the BBQ less than a month ago, and now I hear the price may soon be slashed to $49!
