I am sabrinathan. New comer to BB world. Have used nokia business series - Communicator  etc all this while


Was not happy that they have turned to microsoft lumia


Bought a 9360 curve model to try out yesterday. Extremely happy with the OS and features.


Horribly disappointed with battery life.


Have been on the net searching for issues. Found that there are many who have the same issue.


Also read that there is a firmware update which can fix this.


The OS version on the box is 7.1.0 bundle 2039. Is there an update available? Can someone post a link and a how to or point me towards some FAQs ?
