Nokia Lumia :: 900 Getting Hot/battery Drain?
I got a new Lumia 900 recently and have noticed that the battery hardly lasts half a day.I have emails configured as push, whatsapp running and the weather flow app. I have turned off all other background tasks.1. Does the people hub sync in the background? The feeds update only when I open the app, so I am not sure.2. Does the me hub sync in the background?3. Will removing their tiles from the start screen, will they stop syncing? Or do I have to unlink my Facebook, twitter and linked accounts completely?4. If I turn in background tasks for a program like flickr/imdb, will they sync even if they dont have live tiles on the home screen? What do they sync? I have always seen them start from scratch when I open he apps.

Nokia Lumia :: 820 - Battery Drain While Charging?
I have the Lumia 820 with the Navigon navigation app installed. I went on a trip this past weekend and noticed a strange battery drain while driving to my destination. The drive was a little over 2 hours and I was charging the phone the whole time. I figured I would test it on the drive home. I charged the phone completely before starting the drive home. I was camping so I had to use the lighter jack in the car which is always on and charged the phone from less then 10% to 100% overnight. Again the drive was a little over 2 hours, had the Navigon app open and running the whole time and the phone was plugged into the lighter and the charging icon was registering a charge the whole time. The only other thing running was cellular data. NFC, Bluetooth, Wifi, Nokia Drive, all off. When I arrived home the phone was at 45% and was very hot.
I upgraded from the Samsung Focus and using the Navigon app in the same car never ever had less power when I I ended a trip to when I started a trip. I use the Navigon app all time so this is a real issue. I am also going to post this on the Navigon website.

Nokia Lumia :: 900 Won't Power On After Battery Drain
The Nokia Lumia 900 got BRICKED within a week of getting it....Here is what happened, last night I could not get my phone recharged on time and as I was doing something the phone suddenly froze and died as it had ran out of juice. I left it there in that state for awhile and then plugged into wall...first the bottom three buttons lit up, a white screen, then a big battery showed up with with a bit of red charge, then a nokia page and then finally an att page with the words "rethink possible".....and it shuts off and starts this loop.

Nokia :: Battery Drain On N79?
My batterytime is now down to half a day. I thought it may the the battery who was bad, and got my self a new, original battery. But it's the same story. I have the last software version, and yes, I'm running bluetooth, -but only half a day? I had that Voip (Gizmo or somthing) installed for a while, and I suspected that it drained the battery, but I think I managed to uninstall it.

Nokia Nseries :: N8 Quick Battery Drain?
I recently received my N8 (1-1.5 weeks ago) and have been having a lot of fun with it however my biggest gripe is that the battery would require charging far too soon (once or twice a day depending on use)I was a little dumbfounded as reviews have been praising the N8s battery life. However I thought perhaps my usage was a little more extreme than the common user/reviewer.
Until the other night, before bed, my battery indicator showed roughly 50% battery life; I had turned my widgets and apps off (my bluetooth and gps were also off the only thing on was my wifi)
I locked my screen, leaving the clock screensaver on, and proceeded to sleep not 4 hours later I awoke and wanted to check what time it was but my phone had shut off, the battery was drained!
This doesn't seem normal to me and I posed the question to the aforementioned blog and the replies I received also found the situation odd.I have proceeded with a test after charging my battery to full. This time I have insured everything is turned off, that is the: widgets are in offline mode; apps; wlan; gps; bluetooth; FM transmitter. I have left the clock screensaver on and am waiting to see how long the battery lasts.

Nokia :: 5800 Xpressmusic Bluetooth Battery Drain
I recently got the 5800 xpress music and I noticed that when I have bluetooth enabled it drinks up the battery charge like crazy certanly a lot faster then my last phone a 5610 xpress music. Now I think this is because the WIFI is always on as well, I don't have need of the WIFI always being on but I can't find a way to switch it off.

Nokia :: 5800XM High Battery Drain When In USB Mode?
Connected my 5800 up to my PC last night, with a full battery. Set it to x-fer loads of music, came back in the morning. battery dead! Im wondering if.
a. Is this normal? All of my other phones have been "charge via USB" so i guess you dont see the high drain.
b. Phones with really poor battery life.. is there some sort of software glitch causing the USB connection to stay active even though the cable is out? Might explain a few problems I have read on the boards here!

Nokia :: 6220 Classic / Severe Battery Drain
I have a 6220 Classic and recently a new indicator has appeared in the top right corner of the homescreen (alongside battery strength indicator). At the same time I'm noticing that my battery is not holding any charge, as in I have to charge it daily or more often, even when I'm not making calls and have bluetooth turned off.I can't identify the indicator in my manual but I think it might be something to do with GPS? It looks a bit like a satellite - a sort of coke can with oblong wings coming off at an angle!Interestingly I just went into Nokia Maps (as a test) and when I exited the indicator disappeared from my homescreen.Any advice gratefully received.

Nokia :: N97 Sports Tracker From Technologies - Drain Battery
I have used this App for years now and just upgraded a few weeks ago to the new 3.01(0) (S60 5.0) from Sports Tracker Technologies for the N97 Mini. I have noticed a major problem with the new application which pretty much drains my N97 battery within a couple of hours from full charge, and if you like to cycle for more than 2 hours this is a real pain in the neck.
I have tested every other app, on standby, the old Nokia beta version and no problem with the battery (I even bought a new battery!). I reported the problem to the new company in Mid July (twice) and have still to even get an acknowledgement that they received my email. I also reported a more minor issue at the same time where by all screens do not show up in the selected unit of measure (e.g. if you select miles/imperial as the default) the month summary screen still shows Kms.

Nokia Nseries :: N8-00 Battery Drain After Upgrading To Belle
Thought I's start ANOTHER thread on this topic as the other one a) had not official response, and b) slipped down the list.
Have now tried all different types of remedy for this fault Re-set at least a dozen times (pressing the power button for 15/20 secs) Factory re-set, then having to re-install all my apps
Still got a massive battery drain fault - Used to get 3 to 4 days out of it before Belle upgrade, now I'm lucky to get a day & a half and I switch the phone off at night when in bed.
What on earth is going on Nokia? Such as shame that a very good phone & platform is letting your long term customers down with such a severe battery drain.
Will be talking to vodafone later this week to get the phone looked at but I will expect the response that the phone will be sent away for testing and I will be without a phone for the duration.
Also, is it correct that by not updating to Belle can invalidate the warranty on the hand set?

Nokia :: 5800 XM - WLAN Related Battery Drain Since Firmware V50.0.005
Since upgrading to firmware v50.0.005 my 5800xm started to run out of battery after 10-12 hours. After some tests, uninstalling programs, deleting all WLAN Connections etc I found out that this is caused by unwanted WLAN connections to known WLANs. How can i solve this?This happens only at home or in my office (where I use wlan) , there are no applications running and nothing is allowed to sync automatically. But after some minutes when I unlock my 5800, I can see the wlan antenna - but when I want to check the connection, it disappears.I never had battery or WLAn issues, but since upgrading to v50 when i forget to connect it to the charger overnight the battery has drained and is empty.For finding open WLAn and for easy connections I use WeFi since I own my 5800. This never caused me any problem. But I have read through the Support Discussion and some other boards on the web: There are many others that suffer from battery drain after upgrading to Firmware v50.So please check whether this may also be related to unwanted WLAN traffic on your 5800:I stayed a few days in a hotel where there was no WLAN. I tried to upgrade again to Firmware v50 again via PC and cable, not OTA again. The battery lasted for three days as before (but remeber there was no WLAn available!)As soon as I was back home, the 5800 begain to connect again in standby estimated every 10 minutes to my home WLAN. I can see this in the router´s connected devices. When I unlock the 5800 I see that WLAN is active and connected, a second later, or if I click on the icon, the connection disappears Simply bad, because when I forget my phone charger in the evening to hang on in the morning it is empty.Perhaps these guys have the same problem: /t5/Connectivity/5800-Wifi-Bug/m-p/410781 but I never ever had photo exchange, skype, fringe or else installed. I have changed nothing before or after the upgrade to v50, I have not installed new software or else.

BB Bold 9700 :: Battery Drain Once / Battery Pull Next
I did an update using DM for MAC twice, and after each my phone remained on for a couple of hours. I then turned it off overnight and when I tried to start it up in the morning, nothing happened. No action at all. I knew the battery was charged the night before so I immediately discounted that. I eventually connected the phone to my car charger and it eventually started after a few minutes. Happened againg last night, but this time instead of re-charging it I did a battery pull. It started up after a few seconds. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Hot Battery And Battery Drain
Have a replacement Storm for the past 6 weeks. Not having any problems. Running OS .75. No new apps the past several weeks. Yesterday battery drained completely in < 2 hours (went to make a call and phone was dead). Charged it half way (so I could use it again) and noticed last night after 2 hours the battery area was hot and charge went from 50% to 15% without use. Ran it for another hour and battery was no longer hot and battery percentage stayed at 15%. Checked to make sure there was nothing else running in the background other than my usual 6 apps. Keep my Storm in a holster and lock it before placing it in there. Did a battery pull and charged it completely last night. So far the past 3 hours this morning having no problems.

IPhone :: Battery Drain - 3Gs
This is new for me. Today I left the house with a full charge, 4 hours later, I had so little battery life left that I couldn't even turn my phone on. I've searched the forums and found some discussion of similar issues, but nothing about a spontaneous, out of the blue, total loss of power. I'm curious if there are any apps that are known energy suckers or if I've done something to my settings that could be contributing to the loss. I was recently out of the country, so I had shut down everything (no data, no push, no 3G, etc) to avoid getting socked with a big bill, but I'm pretty sure that I've returned everything to its previous state. Is there a primer available for settings that will allow for full functionality, but prevent unnecessary power loss?

IPhone :: 4 Battery / How Much Does Wi-Fi Drain?
Previous smart phones I owned turned wifi off when the screen went dead. So essentially wifi didn't really drain any battery and wifi was easier on the battery then 3g when actively pulling down data.
So now I am on a 2gb plan (previously on unlimited) and sensitive to this I keep my wifi on all the times to use my home connection when possible.My battery however is barely getting through a full day. My wife was getting solid days but she had wifi off.Do you think that this is effecting it? I use my phone quite a bit throughout the day.

IPhone :: 4s - Battery Drain With 5.1.1 OS
My iPhone 4S had been working great, but after upgrading to 5.1.1 OS it is draining the battery by the afternoon every day without any or very little use. I rely on my phone for business and it can't even make it through a work day! It is draining about 4 times faster than normal. I found a post referencing to 'Reset All Settings' which I tried yesterday, but it still is draining fast. I tried resetting, rebooting, shutting down all apps, but nothing helps.

IPhone :: Having Fast Battery Drain
My cousin and I both have 16gb iphone 3gs's and we are both having batter issues (my cousins is worse though).The battery drains so fast it's ridiculous. My cousins phone went from 100% to 64% in 2 hours with only sending a couple text messages. I think we have narrowed down the problem to something continuously running in the background. Here is a snapshot of his usage:URL...
Look at that ridiculous amount of data sent and received, and look at his call time. The current call time should not even be close to lifetime call time. He's done a hard reset, etc., and nothing has changed. Is there a way to figure out what's going on?
My phone is not as bad, but the battery does seem to drain more than usual. I did a little test...I reset the usage statistics and then just put my phone on sleep and didn't touch it for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes my data sent and received was:
That's after 10 minutes of no usage after resetting the stats to zero. What is going on? There is obviously something running, but I can't figure it out.

IPhone :: How To Fix Fast Battery Drain
I upgraded my phone from a black berry to an 8gb i phone 3gs on the 2nd april. the phone was perfectly operational for about two weeks whereupon after charging it overnight on sunday 18th april the battery only lasted two hours. during this time all i had done was make two phonecalls. the problem persisted all week in which time i had tried switching off bluetooth, wifi, 3g etc all to no avail. the problem also coincided with the day i bought a protective casing for the phone. thinking this might be the problem i removed it to no avail. my mobile operator (vodafone) then replaced the phone for me on friday last.
i did as they asked and sync'd with itunes and charged the phone for 12 hours on friday night. i unplugged it at 8am saturday morning and didn't use the phone until 2pm at which time it still had a full charge. when i then used it to make a phone call the battery then drained totally in the space of two hours and the problem has persisted until today.
vodafone are replacing the phone once again (this time to a 16gb 3gs) but i find it highly unlikely that i would have the same problem with two brand new phones in the space of two weeks. With this in mind i'm wondering is there something i am doing (such as how i'm charging the battery for example) that is causing this problem. i have discussed this with fellow iphone friends and can't seem to come up with a solution.

IPhone :: New Battery Drain In Standby
My new iPhone 4 is experiencing battery drain in standby. It was in standby for approx. 8 hours overnight and went from 74% to 65%, a drop of 9%, which means it's dropping at a rate of over 1% per hour while in standby. To equate to Apple's quoted rate of 300 hours of standby, it should not drop more than 1% in 3 hours. I have drained and fully charged the battery once. I have 3G and WiFi enabled, all push is off, location & BT are off. This seems unreasonable to me. Are others experiencing this and do you know of nay fixes or should I replace the phone?

BB Bold 9700 :: 3G Battery Drain
I live in an area w/o 3G right now, so I'm just experiencing 3G on my 9700 on a weekend getaway. My battery drains MUCH faster now, with UberTwitter being the only app I have open. Are there any tips|tricks or anything in the settings I can tweak to reduce the drain, or is this just the price of the speed boost?
