    Thanks grimreaper.

    I know that 3 days my be a little premature, but how have you found the battery life vs. .267? I've found .267 very stable, just not quite happy about the battery life and lower-than-I'm used-to radio signal. I previously experienced -53 to -70db (7.0.0.585 if I recall correctly), now getting -77db at best.

    I've only used the official OS7.1.0.284 for my BlackBerry Bold 9900, for a full day and some, with regards to my battery life, I have seen an improvement using the Battery Saving Mode feature (see screenshot below), when users enable it, from Always On to 10%, it can make a difference.

    Other BlackBerry users may claim that they don't see a difference using it, but other users always seem to forget to close off applications that they don't use, while opening another application, then forgetting to close that, and so on.

    Any device's battery life has several factors, elessar, so it is difficult to measure a true answer, everyday we use our BlackBerry it differs from one day to the next.

    You could be doing barely nothing one day, to all out activities.... phone calls, BBM, sending files, music, pictures, email, or using other third party application(s).

    On average, I'd say I could get a full day worth from my Bold 9900 (off a full charge), with a good amount of usage, and that is ok with me.

    You also mention that you get a certain wireless radio signal between -53 to -70 when you were using OS 7.0.0.585, and you say you're currently getting -77db on OS 7.1.0.284.

    If you're not aware, the higher the db radio signal, the better it is

    Hope this helps.

    Its more fun to have OS 7.1.0.284 for Bold 9900/9930-bb-battery-saving-mode.jpg

    It seems that the lower the mobile wireless signal, the better.

    Thank you elessar for the share my friend.

    The average signal strength most mobile users will see on their BlackBerry devices is -77 db

    Just updating to .284. Hope I get my signal strength comes back. (FYI -- The closest Telus/Bell tower is about a mile from my house, on a direct line of sight. Anywhere in the house but in my basement is where I've enjoyed the max. 53db.)

    Thanks for all the input, guys. ~ecm

    That's right Sir! For 4 days now and counting, I only get to charge my 9900 once a day.. Still, it depends on how you use the device. We can't deny that some of our fellow BB mates are inclined with Music, Games or even making a Never-ending conversation via Call.

    As long as you know how to manage your usage, I'm pretty sure our devices will not give up on us on a daily basis..
