Hi to all,
I recently swiched to a bold 9000 smartphone. I am very pleased with my selection except from the battery life. I have installed a number of OS5 but no luck with any of them.
I wiped the device and reset it to factory settings using BBSAK.
I am currently on OS v188.8.131.529 bundle 1748 platform 184.108.40.206.
I have spent the last 3 weeks reading posts and solutions but none of them seem to work on my device. The maximum I have gotten out of the phone is 5 hours of use (or non-use I should say since the phone is on 2G and used for a couple of quick phone calls and 2 or 3 emails). If I put it on 3G battery lasts for 3 hours wihtout doing anything. If I use like I used all my other balackberries then in 2 hours the battery is dead. I have also noticed that when the battery drops to 50% then the discharge is much much faster (maybe half an hour).
I have checked my battery and it is working fine. It also charges fine both with AC outlet charger and USB (it is new after all).
I have set backlight brightness to 30 backlight timeout to 10 seconds no applications running in the background but I can not manage any better than 5 hours which makes the phone useless for my 16 hours day(I don't mind charging it every night but I need it to get me through the day).
I have checked the eventlog file but I do not see anything suspicious based on my understanding apart from the "a net.rim.memclean - FrmF" that is running every 2 or 3 minutes for about ten times each. Is this a probable cause for the battery drain?
I will greatly appreciate if any of you have some ideas as to what to do to make this device productive for me.
Thank you very much...
