    Your battery on the Tour is that bad? I have GPS enabled, Bluetooth connected 24 hours a day and on my Tour, I can go 2 days with out charging. On the Storm ( I use both ) it is dead by n6pm and I have to charge it.

    Josh, its ok, you can tell everyone you are running Crackmans new hybrid v8 :-p

    I'm just not getting the life from it I expect. Especially since it does not have to light up a screen the size of the Storms. There's no way I could go 2 days that's for sure. I have 4 bars most all the time too or I'd think it's a signal issue. Not been too bad today (first day with that cheap 1600mAh battery), currently 4.5% an hour and it's at 71%.

    Honestly, I'm probably just using it a lot more than I had recently been useing my Storm. There's still no way I can go 2 days but I'm interested how long I can go so I'll run this one down & have a fresh OEM ready and do the same with it.

    Yeah there is no way I could go 2 days either :eek5: I don't use Bluetooth at all and no gps and mine is dead by 11pm at the latest. I have twitter running every 10 minutes, and that is what I attribute to that drain.

    I've been on here ever since and my usage is at 5.3% ab hour with 59% left.

    I don't use anything that uses GPS and the only apps that are running are BBWeather (30min interval for temp 240min interval for forecast), YouMail with polling off and The Missing Sync.

    I think I'll skip the "how many days" test & charge tonight as normal.

    Here something to try that has worked for many BB users in the past.

    Drain your battery all the way to dead (to the point where the phone physically shuts off). Then recharge you battery back to full.

    What this does is semi-flash the memory of your battery in essence resetting it. Give it a shot and see if it helps out your battery drain issue.

    Thanks olta but I think I'll stay away from software fixes.

    I am with you. I would rather it be working right from the start. Definitely try Jlevy's suggestion. It works.
