I just got the BB Curve 9330 less than a week ago, out of the box i let it get down to an empty battery and then charged it up, the battery was awful, it was discharging 5-10% overnight. I went to the store, they gave me a new battery and that didnt help and so they gave me a new device, and this one the battery life is even worse! Using the web for 10 minutes draws the battery by 10 to 15%! The whole battery with light use (A couple texts and light emailing and maybe 1 or 2 calls) and it lasts me no more than 12 hours. THIS IS TERRIBLE. What can I do to get a phone and/or battery that actually last me atleast a day?! I have never experianced such a poor phone before. I really don't want to go back to the store AGAIN, i think they think I am crazy.
Sorry you are not getting the battery performance that you would like. I have a few tips for getting a little extra performance from you device.
Tips for improving battery performance
Hope this helps,
I have tried all of these things, i do use meterberry which tells me the rate of discharge, and its telling me that its discharging at the rate of 7.6% every hour. This is awful.
My system is up to date.
Wifi is off.
I have full bars in my area.
and screen brightness is down.
I dont even use it that much.
I agree with LCromwell. I will send you a Private Message here in the forums to give you more information about leaks. There are a few official OS updates from other carriers that will work great too.
Would you send me the same thing? My new Blackberry Curve 9330 is using 10-15% battery power per hour. I've been at the Verizon Store for the last 3 days. Checked that latest OS was current; all is well with Verizon; replaced battery; still using 10-15% battery power per hour. I'm going back to store tonight to ask for new phone. I'm not sure what else to troubleshoot.
