Battery Drain - BBM

Dear Blackberry users,

 

I bought a Q5 3 weeks ago. I've never used BBM, just logged in the app (but never sent any messages, no contacts, ...).

 

However, according to the device monitor, BBM is consuming more than 45% of my battery, and dowloading several mega-bytes of data every day. As a result, my battery lasts about 6 hours (and my data plan is suffering too)

 

My phone is up-to-date, i've installed all the updates.

 

I've read on others threads that rebooting the phone would solve the problem, but it didn't work for me!! (I did it several times)

 

I would be grateful if you could help me!

 

Thomas.

Re: Battery Drain - BBM

Hi Oscarocom

I recommend that you update the latest version of BBM
Available in BlackBerry World

BBM 10.3.33.18 http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/22531423/?countrycode=GB&lang=en

This version is more fluid more stable and should not drink much resource.

Regards.

Re: Battery Drain - BBM

When I go to the App world, I see: Installed version, Version 10.3.33.18

 

Sorry for the confusion with my previous message, I got the version number in my previous message by going to device monitor > BBM > version (which is 10.2.1.3247)

 

So it seems like I already have the latest version installed?

 

Thank you

 

Thomas

Go to BlackBerry World

Press update BlackBerry World

The application will close wait 10 seconds and open
