    How long does it usually take to fully charge your Tours?

    Believe it or not I run it pretty hard. I have MB installed and today for example my battery usage is 0.5%. Crazy. Yes Stormy would be dead by now.

    My guess is somewhere in the neighborhood of 1-2 hours.

    So far. I fully charged my phone off the hook at 7:30am it's about 530p now and i'm about at 65% with maybe 4 phone calls, 50 texts, and 50 BB messager usage. So far.. I dunno if my phone will die by the 11pm hits. Who knows? Lol. any other updates?

    i took mine off the charger at about 9 am, its now 5:30 and im at 55%. this consists of having ubertwitter and berryweather running the whole time and 50-75 emails, minimal bbm and some web browsing.

    is that bad?! :lmao: i dont know anymore... storm would have been in the teens by now if that.

But I wish there are some tips or something? Or does anyone else have the same issue or Battery life problems in general? Is the Tour worth it, if it doesn't even last you?
    You should try going to Options>Advanced Options>GPS> Turn off Device Aiding.

    This is usually the culprit when it comes to Blackberry Battery Drains. I just bought my girlfriend a Tour yesterday and I noticed the severe battery drain. For some reason it did not move that setting over from her Curve 8330. Anyways, try that and let us know!

    My tour doesn't last me the whole day either. I was at the courthouse on friday doing my jury duty and the battery lasted from 8:00 am until about 3:00. I admittedly was using it quite alot while I was serving, but I would expect the battery to last much longer than that. I was in a low reception area, so my cell was pushing 100db to get reception. This is my second tour, and it actually has better battery life than my first for whatever thats worth.
