    RIM Announces Severe Battery Draining Issue on 9800 Torch


    This is some very late info that has been released by RIM! The versions mention in the below statement are quite old and most 9800 users have moved on from them. Never the less, we would still like you to know that the Torch 9800 has experienced severe battery drainage issues based on certain operating systems.

    RIM's Announcement:
    The BlackBerry Torch suffers rapid battery drain and overall sluggishness due to the phone application utilizing high amount of CPU.
    Effected:
    BlackBerry Torch 9800 Smartphone
    BlackBerry Device Software 6.0.0.526-6.0.0.536
    Currently I am running the newest official OS for the 9800 (6.0.0.576 by Bharti Airtel) and I am not seeing any power drain issues like the ones spoken above. So, if you are running am OS in the range of effected operating system's I would upgrade to 6.0.0.576. If you need, feel free to check out our OS Upgrading Tutorial.

    I've heard of users experiencing issues with 6.0.0.600.

    Well well well. So I'm not crazy!! I knew it just wasn't me being on the phone too much! LOL. Maybe now I can stop carrying a charger with me everywhere I go.

    Actually, I'm getting some of the best battery life I've ever experienced with this phone after upgrading to .600.

    This is what I have heard for the 9700. The 9800 seems to be getting conflicting feedback. Could be the user isn't wiping before installing.
