Software Update and Battery Life

Ever since doing the software update for my blackberry curve 8530, my battery life has gone down the drain.  I  used to get by for two days on a charge.  I am barely making it through one day on a charge now.  Anyone else having this issue and any suggestions would be appreciated.

Roll it back until they have a better OS.

Hi,

I have noticed on a Blackberry, if your device is trying to lock into a strong 1XEV signal and is bouncing back and forth between 1X and 1XEV, it uses a lot of battery power.  You may need to update your PRL by dialing *228 and option 2.  Make sure you are in your home area and have a good signal that is 1XEV and not roaming.  This may help.
