Curse - Battery Problem?
Hey all. I'm new to the forums and RIM.
I've got a Bold 9000 and its super cool. I got it from my dad when he got a Torch. But.....
A few weeks before he even knew that he was getting a BB Torch, his (now mine) Bold started acting weird. And the same weirdness now haunts me.
Without being plugged to the power supply, the phone lasts a maximum of around 5 hrs IN BEDSIDE MODE. For emergencies, when I needed to use the phone for a longer time, and only for SMS too, I had to turn it off soon after reading/sending an SMS. When not in bedside mode, it lasts a maximum of 1.5-2 hours...
And another part of the curse is that randomly (when not plugged in to the power) the screen goes white all of a sudden. Nothing other than white remains on the screen. Before I found a temparory cure for this (which was removing and refixing the battery), the screen stayed glowing for over a day! This 'glowing' has never happened while plugged to the charger.
The other thing is that when I unplug my BB Bold from its power source, starting at 100%, and start using an application like Opera Mini or a game, by the end of 10 minutes of continuous use, the screen'd be glowing white again. When I do a 'battery pull', it resumes functioning, but with the power level at 0%! And this is 'too low for radio use'. Out of frustration then I'd do another 'battery pull' and find the battery level at 10% even without the slightest influence of the charger!
So, could I know what I should be doing? Should I get a new battery (the present one is about a year old)? Or is it some software problem? Or... Is it a curse?!
Oh and the local retailer (couldn't successfully diaggnose her quandary)
Thanks for any help and any attempts of aid, in advance. I really appreciate.
P.S. Oh and I also have a problem with my BB Desktop Manager 6.
The "Apply Now" button is frozen, below the Applications list... What do I do?
P.S.S. Oh and my LED notifier doesn't sparkle when a new SMS message arrives. I know that it hasn't blown out because I've seen it illuminate on 'battery pull'. I even checked with the Advanced Settings in the "Profiles" section and logically have done all necessary for the LED to work (it stopped working one afternoon the previous week).
