I'm thinking around 10th Dec mate really hope it is and they solve the OS issues
I have upgraded to 18.104.22.168 and it is still poor, it is something to do with 'polling' for emails because if I turn off 'data' it is fine and will easily last the day which is clearly no good to anyone!
It would be good if you cold lower the poll time, but I understand this is not possible?
May go back to my trusty 9700..........
It has nothing to do with "polling" for emails, the issue regarding battery life, which most of the time, user's forget to stop applications running in the background.
When I am done with an application, I turn it off, which saves battery life.
There are other factors why the battery drains as fast as it does, such as a poorly written BlackBerry app, which eats up battery life more than it should, which is very unfortunate.
I love my BlackBerry Bold 9900, and I have nothing bad to say about it....absolutely nothing.
I would have to agree with grimreaper that this is by far the best os on 9900. I took my phone off the charger at 6am this morning and at 5:30pm I still have 70% left. This is with 80 modules and 79 processes running on average. I am impressed being the data abuser that I am (avg monthly usage 2.78gb).
Guys, sorry for the slip up on the OS, you are right :-)
Anyway the battery issue is not due background apps running as I have trie dthat already. However, what I have discovered today is that if you switch the phone to 2G only the battery is great, everything I mostly use still works BBM, eMail and internet.
It has saved a migration to iPhone :-)
Thanks for your help anyway.
Are you aware of any and can you name any of the 'Poorly written apps' that you mention?
Did you talk to ur carrier. I had the same issue. Telus told me that the first batch of batteries was faulty. Replaced my battery and now I don't have to look for my charger 3 times a day
