BB Curve :: Battery Dies Within 18 Hours On Standby
Aug 15, 2011
My curve's (which is 2 months old) battery is dying after only 18 hours on standby, and it takes it forever to load anything. She just gets stuck with the little "loading" clock in the middle of the screen. That, plus the fact that I fear answering a single call will make my battery die at the rate its going. Is there anything I can do?
I got a Torch 9800 from a friend and the battery life is horrible. It was bought in March 2011 and today after sending 3 texts and checking the time, maybe unlocking 3 times, the battery only has a third left. I charged it all night. Wifi is disabled, and I don't use data. Previous user had it as a work phone sending several emails and using data, pin, calling and texting, so that could be a reason why the battery life is so poor, I'm just skeptical about purchasing a new battery when it seems RIM has had some battery issues. Any advice on whether I should go ahead with the purchase? I'm just worried I'll be facing a short battery life with a new battery in a matter of months.
my phone dies so fast. I was told by rogers to reload my cell through blackberry. So i tried. and when I click on update there is nothing in the left corner. They told me to hit the View other versions and the nothing is there. I did order another battery just incase but it sucks that half way through school I have no cell.
Yesterday, I upgraded by BB Curve 9300 OS version from 5.0 to 6.0. After upgrading my battery backup doesn't work for more than 8 Hrs on standby. How can I restore previous version of OS ver. i.e. 5.0? Before the upgrade my device was working absolutely fine.
I don't know if this is a problem with Android in general, but my Play's battery will literally die in ~8 hours when not connected to wifi. As I write this, the phone is just sitting here next to me, not being used, and it's drawing 149mA; this number goes up substantially if the phone is actually active, or if I simply hold it in my hand. Obviously, the phone has poor reception and is expending a lot of energy to hold the signal. If I turn wifi on, it's only drawing 1mA! What the heck is the problem? Is this normal?
-Only happens while using 3G.
-Only things syncing are one Twitter and one exchange account.
-Not using a live wallpaper.
-Wifi is turned off when I leave the house so as not to keep searching.
I'm getting so tired of monitoring this things battery. I just want to use my phone.
So recently I have notice that my iphone 4's battery isn't so great. It is jailbroken but I have jailbroken since the first day the hack was released and only a couple of days ago the battery started to drain really fast.I do have winterboard and activator on my iphone.A couple of days ago my iphone would be around 97% or 96% of over night stand by. This is not right at all. Help is fully appreciated.
I have a blackberry 8520, I have had it for about 2 months now. My blackberry battery gets really hot than within the hour the battery dies. This happens randomly. First time it happened to me I was in a movie theatre and had the phone on silent. The second time it happened I was wearing it on my belt clip and had it on loud. I do not keep any apps running and usually only use the phone for txts and email. My fiancee bought his blackberry curve 8520 the same day and he has the same problem. My blackberry is updated with the latest software. Any one else have this same issue?
Battery dischrges rapidly. And yes, I do all the right things for battery life management. It even discharges when the BB is turned off. I replaced the battery already. I think it may have been caused when I upgraded to the new 6 OS. Has this happened to anyone and is there a fix?
Every night before I go to sleep I turn off my Blackberry curve and then turn it back on in the morning. However, just lately when I go to turn it back on it won't switch on, even though the battery was fully charged when I turned it off, leave it overnight and it won't turn back on. It has happened for a week now. If I turn it off at any other time and turn it back on it is fine, just overnight I have the problem. The only way I can turn it back on is by plugging it in. Is there anything that I can do? Do I need a new battery?
I just got my BB curve 9300 about a month ago. I noticed the battery dies when it still has 30-40% life in it. It doesn't even give me a notification or anything. It's on one minute and I look the next and it's off. It will only turn back on if I stick it on the charger and charge it. This becomes a problem when I depend on it as an alarm in the morning or if I'm going to be out all day. I close my applications and everything. I don't think that would be a problem in this case anyways since the battery seems to still have 30-40% life in it.
I've been using this unit for just over a year and now the battery is acting up. I've reset to the factory setting but the battery still keeps dying without any warning. When I charge, it takes less than 10min to reach 50% but it dies faster. There are no other apps running on it now.
My battery is draining in 8 hours where it used to last longer. I've replaced it twice and I have reason to believe it is the device itself. I have shud down most of the unnessesary functions (ie Wifi, Bluetooth, etc) but the battery still only lasts about 8 hours when doing nothing. What can i do?
I've had a BB Curve 9360 (I think!) for just over a year and in the last few months it has started to get really hot and run the battery down really quick. I charge it up over night every night and before lunch time it has drained completely without even using it except to maybe send the odd txt msg or check the time. I have checked that every application is closed down, turned off my WIFI and sometimes even my phone service but it seems to have no effect. It doesn't always do this it used to be once every couple of weeks and now it's more like every other day.
So I have had my blackberry for a bit over a year now. And it was all working fine until a couple of days ago.Now the battery only seems to last for about 2.5hours, from being 100% to shutting off because of low battery. I havent got applications running in the background, and have read and followed all of the maximise battery life posts.I used to be able to leave it for a day or more with it being fine.
What can I do to solve this, as it is really inconveniencing my life at the moment, because it just isnt staying on long enough for me to do anything.and its a blackberry curve 8250 and the battery says 'capacity 1150mAh' and C-S2.
I bought BB curve 9360 on 16th December 2011 from the carrier Windmobile but since January 2012 battery charge does not last more than 2 to 3 hours after fully charging the battery. And after this charge I can only talk 20 to 30 minutes.
I just want to ask regarding issues on my Blackberry 9380's battery performance. Before I decided to buy this model, I considered the battery life because I would always be out most of the day , the reviews were great actually better than the reviews for my old 8520 but I was surprised to find out that my battery does not even last more than 12 hours. The battery would also be warm every once in a while.
My lovely Blackberry 8520 doesn't have any more than about 12 hours battery life. Even without using it for anything, it starts the day fully charged and loses juice by 6pm, when I have to turn it off. I've had it since March, it has had a new battery (about a month into my contract with Orange), and I also have Battery Booster enabled.
My battery in my blackberry curved died. I have plugged it into the wall charger. It turns on and it says it is charging but it still says I have zero battery, its been plugged in for 3 hrs. When I disconnect the phone from the plus it turns off.
I replaced my battery yesterday for my Curve 9300 (3G) smartphone. I started the day at 100% charge. After 8 hours, the battery is at 40%. My provider says there's no issues; I've not changed my useage habits and have used the phone for less than 1 hour today.
my 8900 is suddenly using up its battery in 2 hours. This has happened after i tried to log onto App World yesterday but the whole phone jammed. It said loading but the little cog wheel was not turning and after about ten minutes i took the battery out as every button was frozen. Now it seems to be working OK but every few minutes there is a little black square appearing in the middle of the screen with like a second hand in it. I am guessing there is some sort of programme running in the background? I have tried hard re booting (ie removing the battery when the phone is on) a couple of times but the battery is still draining and the little black square keeps appearing?
I even submitted the phone to the service center and they said they have fixed it, but the issue still persists. My phone (Xperia X10, with the latest software) goes dead (not restart but shut down) , intermittently, at different battery levels (but always less than 15%). I mean, once i get the 15% notification for remaining battery level, it becomes unstable and keep shutting down at different battery levels (12%, 10%, 9%, 6% being the most common ones). I have to reboot the phone everytime it dies. There is no trend for the shut down, ie. sometimes the phone shuts repeatedly at different levels as I keep rebooting, sometimes it shuts just once, and on few occasions it never shuts down. I have performed factory data resets, formatted SD card (16gb SDHC, class2) , used different SD cards but every combination ended up in the same behavior.
Perhaps I didn't calibrate my battery meter correctly, but if I drain my battery it dies at 9% most of the time. This happen to anyone else? With lithium ion batteries I'm pretty sure that the battery is pre configured in the OS for the stock battery specifically, so that the meter doesn't need to be calibrated. Anyone have any thoughts?
In the past week, my phone has started dying at 20-30%. When I plug it in to charge, it starts charging at the same charge it died at. Will a restore in iTunes help that, or do I just need to replace the battery or phone? Or, will updating to iOS 5.1.1 help that (I am running at 5.1)?
My Iphone 4s used to turn off with 10-20% battery, now it turns off with more than 40% and it turns on imediately when I plug it in the charger, what can I doMy Iphone 4s used to turn off with 10-20% battery, now it turns off with more than 40% and it turns on imediately when I plug it in the charger, what can I do?
This just happened recently. I can feel the thing in my pocket heating up. The battery goes from full charge to empty in the matter of a couple hours.
Oddly though, this morning it said I had no service and my phone was normal temp and the battery lasted a long time. Or course i needed services so I turned the phone off and on and the service was back and so was the hot phone.
The phone is over a year old. I've tried all of the trick. Hard Reboot. Reset all of my settings etc.
