What's the battery life supposed to be like on these things ? My Torch would quite happily run for a day and a half, although I charged it each night to be safe. The Z10 came yesterday, so I left it on charge all night after the first few hours messing around. Today it's been almost flat twice, and I don't even have anything significant running on it yet.

My phone is 24 hrs old. I charged it last night , I see my battery is at half after 9 hrs. No phone calls. Seems shorter but ok.

Now the charging thing could well be it - I didn't really notice the battery indicator when I unplugged it this morning. Could well be that was what was happening. I've seen other messages about that fault. Wow, everywhere I look with this phone, nothing works right.

Funny you should say that. I just bought a Samsung Note II today ( I still have my Z10) , I did say I was calling this morning but I am trying not to make any hasty decisions as noone else supports the Outlook sync directly lke BB did. That was 1 idea they owned !
Back to support, I just emailed samsung regarding a tech question and the support got back to me in 30 mins. The same goes for Deja office. I think that's awsome. I also never had any other phone other than BB.
Deja Office is my solution for Outlook at some point. Deja works right now for my Samsung. The Z10 is to be my main phone at some point but I cannot wait for the app. BB has the App just has not approved it.
Now that I have calmed down and accepted the fact that I will need an Outlook alternative no matter what phone I go with I am trying to get to know the good things about the Z10.

Charging time for the battery should be about 2 1/2 hours. The battery is 1800 maH and the charger that comes with the phone is 5 v @ 750 maH. My first charge took much longer but I had my phone on all the time and probably had some apps running in the background. Now if I can, I turn it off to charge. If I can't then the charge takes a little longer about 1/2 an hour longer.

Unfortunately you probably can't. Twelve hours would be a good time for it. A pain I know but until they get a battery with biggere capacity it will have to do. I'm used to charging my old BB up once a week. This will be a big learning curve for me to remember to charge it up every night, and probably take the charger with me so I can have life in it ALL day.
