    Can I ask what's meant by a phone needing a few days to "settle in" after a new OS is installed? What does "settling in" involve? Fast battery drain?

    The phone works its balls off, CPU is jumping around at 60-70% which is why the battery drains, you get all of them Yellow Help Boxes around the OS and it generally sets itself up.

    It is just letting the new device get familiar with the in house OS or an old device doing the same with a new version of the OS.

    There's a lot that goes on after an os upgrade. You have to give everything some time to run and and start to get along. Usually after a couple of hours, things are operating pretty fair but full run in isn't complete for a couple days. Can be the same for reboots as your Headless apps reestablish themselves.

    The phone spends resources indexing etc. after an OS install and content being added. If you have a lot of media and or are syncing a lot of accounts, this can drain the battery heavily.

    Thanks, that's what my Q10's been doing since last Wednesday's update to 10.3.2.440. Yesterday I autoloaded 680. The CPU is still running PIM Services and Android Player at 50-60%. I guess that I wait for a few days (again).

    It usually takes my setup about an hour AFTER first boot completes to settle to idle (6% cpu). Takes about 30 minutes after subsequent boots to reach that, as I have a lot of Android apps. I have only one email account - Gmail (email, contacts, calendar), so PIM activity is negligible.

    This is not normal if you aren't doing anything. Try a hard reboot using both volume keys.

    I've hard rebooted many, many times (15+) on both 440 and 680. I've removed the battery and I've allowed the battery to run out (it takes only 3-4 hours from 100%) a couple of times. I've also done a factory reset at least 3-4 times, and I've also avoided restoring my old profile -- none of these actions is having any effect on the CPU/battery consumption. and both PIM Services and Android Player insist on using a ton of resources. I'm willing to wait a few days to see if another autoload is released, but I don't see a bright future for my Q10. I wish I hadn't selected 'auto update', but every previous version (10.1.xx and 10.2.xx) was just fine. I saw nothing but improvements. I generally run very few apps, no games, just news and weather. I've pared them down to the essentials and are all native, I'm pretty sure.

    For anyone who cares, I may have solved the issue of PIM services and/or Android Player using up to 50% of my CPU and draining the battery my Q10 after the 10.3.2.440 and 680 updates. I wiped the phone and selected the option to send information to Blackberry in the initial setup screens -- I think that might have been related to the Android Player overuse of my CPU/battery. I had assumed that the less contact with a server, the better for my battery, but I suspect otherwise.

    Now my phone showed over 2 days' worth of battery remaining, and "Android Player" idled. I assume I've handled that issue.

    Then I added my email accounts waiting for things to "settle" after each added account. I noticed that my work email (a small northern Ontario university) suddenly triggered a huge spike in CPU use, thanks to PIM (we're talking 30%-40%, which is a slight decline from earlier, but I only had 2 accounts loaded at this point). I phoned my work's IT department, and they know nothing about BBerry at all. But while I was on the phone with them, I "unselected" (1) sync calendar and (2) sync contacts and after a short interval, things settled down and PIM Services idled. Now I've also removed "sync tasks" and "sync memos" and PIM Services has idled.

    I tentatively put this out there as a solution -- for the time being.
