Let me ask, is there an app running in the background that may be sucking your battery life? You do close all apps by pressing the BB logo (the dots) and scrolling to close instead of the red telephone button, right?
i wonder if the BatteryWatch app is the app causing the problems.
Edit: I went to the AppWorld and read some of the reviews. While some love it, others said that it eats battery life.
Since it's a free app, how about deleting it and watching your battery usage once it's gone and see if it's causing your battery issues.
And yeah, I close the apps with the BB button and then close, and not just the red button, and there's no app running in the background, I monitored the CPU usage in the device application management and there's no app using the CPU too much.
About the BatteryWatch program, I think if it wants to eat my battery why does it do that just when the data service is turned on? Anyway I've already uninstalled it because it made me feel kinda disappointed each time I press the BB button too! And also the Traffic Control app I had because I thought maybe it eats the battery monitoring the traffic, but nothing changed again!
I installed the OS without my SIM in the phone because I had to make an important call at that moment (I had never done that before), does that have anything to do that with this issue you think? I don't think so and I hope it doesn't but who knows? After all it's BlackBerry and everything is possible!

I updated to the AT&T.600, I made sure the battery was full before loading OS (using the loader not DM) and did 3 battery pull after. The phone is set to 2g/3g and I use a bluetooth headset, now its been 47 1/2 hrs and I down to 30% battery life. I goten a much better battery life with the official AT&T than the .600 leak.
Finally I did a couple of things which really affected the battery life, last night I was sending mails and some surfing for about 3 hrs on battery less than 5%, it's great victory for me in the recent days anyway!
And let me tell u what I did after ofcourse checking almost every app and modules activity and cpu usage and so on, I did a device wipe on user installed apps in the security wipe, everything was gone, including the instant messengers in the (Aim, Yahoo, Live, GTalk), after that I noticed that the battery seems to be back in normal condition, the phone was getting warm just a bit and the battery wasn't draining as fast as before, in fact I felt it's back to normal! So I thought it was maybe one of my installed games caused the problem (cause I had just some games left on the phone at that time), so went to install the messengers from appworld, Aim, Live, Gtalk and noticed that Yahoo! Messenger isn't supported by my carrier according to what appworld said, anyway I installed it from Y! Web site and unbelievably saw that after each of these four, the phone's gettin' warmer and the battery level lowerin' faster!
I sure am thirsty to find the answer to this! And realized that I activate my Gmail as an enterprise account, I don't know if this related to the issue or not, but I deactivated that and set up Gmail and Y!Mail just as a mailbox.
Anyway after a couple of days, at least I've found the reason, and as a result today after doin' a lot of stuff with my phone, un\delete service books, mailboxes, contact sync/wipe, using/ IM+ lite, e-mails, browsing, several battery pulls and reboot, deleting app and etc. On 3G, the battery is 45% in the device info.
And this was my essay on How I Spent The Last Few Days on BB!
Any ideas especially about the IM apps? I need'em anyway!
