    Default BlackBerry Bold 9780 Battery problems!


    I keep my Bold 9780 charging all night and unplug it in the morning. I use it regularly during the day and when my battery reaches a little less than half (not even orange) it shuts off and I have to plug it back in. Does anyone know what could be causing this? If so please help!

    Same problem here! My battery percentage indicator used to be first orange, then it shuts down the antenna and after that the phone shut down. But now my bold shuts down between 45 and 25 percent. When I plug my phone into the charger, it says 2% battery :S
    I updated yesterday my phone to .723. Battery life seems to be better, but I will leave it today without charging and see what will happen.

    Too bad guys. Phone died yesterday at 25 %. I plugged it in and the battery showed 1%. The new OS .723 didn't helped although my battery life seemed to be better between 100-50%.
    Does any body have another -software- solution? The original batteries of BB are freakin expensive here in the Netherlands ( 45 euros).

    Thanks in advance.

    Software doesn't fix a battery (hardware) component or problem. You'll need to get an extended or extra battery from shopcrackberry.com or ebay (where they're $12).

    Download the device software from SK telecom, install it, delete any vendor.xml files found and then you'll be able to update it.

    if the update doesn't fix it then download a battery app that tells you if your battery is "healthy". if it isn't then do what @rootbrian mentioned: buy a new battery.

    i will find out what the app is called.

    yea ... it will need like a 24-48 hour time period in order to record your battery patterns. Then it will tell you. All in all it is a pretty neat app. The coolest part is that it gives you a graph of your battery life and a icon on the status bar that displays your battery life.

    So I Installed Battery Watch and monitored my battery. Above 40 % the battery status said OK. But under 35 % the status said 10000000000.
    I googled what this means, but I couldn't find anything helpfull.
    Does somebody know what this means?

    Thanks in advance.

    This is an OS issue, as I never had this problem until I upgraded my OS. Since then, I have exactly what you're referring to and my phone shuts down when it's in the orange, rather than the red like it did before... and it happens unexpectedly, without warning.

    I was on v6.0.0.0 600, Platform 6.6.0.223... will be updating today.

    If you have reinstalled/updated your OS and you still receive this notification then your only other option would be to replace the battery. I have found a few places to get some below.

    I personally bought my battery from the seller in the first link.

    Option 1

    Option 2
