    Battery shock bold 9900

    Guys,

    Can anyone tell me WTF is wrong with the bold 9900 battery?

    I'm getting max 6/7 hours looking around twitter / Google search everyone's saying the same

    Is this issue with the battery or the OS7?

    I'm using V7.0.0.440

    Don't have any apps running in the background part from Official Twitter that's not updating just sending tweet updates.

    Gone from Bold 9700 to this going what the hell! it's worse than 8520 battery :O

    help!

    It can be a number of things. One thing you can do is try performing a few battery pulls in succession of each other. This may 'shock' the system and fix the issue of why your device is draining your battery.

    It could also be that your radio is working overtime when it may or may not need to.

    Try what I recommend above. You can also do a test and turn off all connections on your device and see if the battery still drains so fast. If no, then you have a radio connections working overtime and draining your battery. Many times a simple OS change can fix this. On my Bold 9930 I was getting by a full day on one charge with a couple hours of talktime on top. So when I hear these types of battery drain complaints, it makes me think that it is strictly OS related.

    Question for you mate

    I read on Google search about my wall papers being the reason why the battery drains so quickly so I changed it to something made by blackberry since doing this I'm not getting 10-11 Hours

    Will this be OS related issue?

    Yes, most of the time it's OS related. Sometimes even going back a OS is better than going forward. I had a 9650 that I was charging 3 times a day. Once I changed the OS I was charging only once a day.

    you can also turn down the backlighting level, switch out of global in the mobile network, and turn off wifi when not in use. Just a few power saving tips
