    Right, I've fixed battery issues by changing to a new OS.

    I'd keep updated until RIM releases a OS that gets a hold of the battery issues users are experiencing. I hear that OS 7.1 is suppose to be the OS that helps with battery.

    Yeah, I guess going back an OS may help in the case of the battery not remaining charged. However, perhaps you need some new phone updates to help it work more optimally. The low battery life seems like a common complaint though. It probably is from the way this type of phone is used.

    I went from 540 to the new 7.1 leak and the battery is the same. Today I took the plunge and did not charge and got about 8 hours out of it, which to me is not acceptable. Granted I love the phone, but it's definitely not ready for primetime unless you have a spare battery (I bought 2 a couple of days after I got the phone). I upgraded from the 9800, which had it's issues compared to the 9700, but really: I think the 9700 was just in a league of it's own.

    I have never heard of the battery shocking theory but will try it. As an aside what programs do you guys use to measure the ADR? I'm using meterberry as I always have but based on the small font (regardless of your system font, the meterberry font stays small) I'm guessing it's not really tuned for OS 7.

    I'm really hoping the 7.1 RIM confirm solves our issues because I love this bold but the battery just doesn't live up to what we expect
