    Check the apps you installed. Also, run the battery device analyzer and see where your battery is being drained. Make sure to close apps fully when not using them. Since I installed 7.1, I'm getting great results and can almost last 2 days on quite a bit of usage, with everything always on, wifi, BT, etc.

    If you hold down your BlackBerry menu button, it will show you which programs are running. You can keep an eye on that to see if you have programs running you are not using. For the next 3 days, try removing the battery from the phone for 60 seconds twice a day. That should help to settle down any OS issues.

    Agree. I got good results also when I transferred from 7 to 7.1. From 6-8, I am now at 10-12 hours.

    Make sure battery saving feature is always on.,

    As posted earlier, try to close unneeded apps and try to limit the refresh rate of apps.

    Do some battery pulls keep the batter away for a minute at least do it for 3 days
    And always check what's running on your phone in the background and the OS you have is very good i myself uses it and its been 8 and half hours since its unplugged with heavy use I have still 63%
    How ever so its useless to have a phone that's dead by noon, It should work for 12 hours at least!

    Yeah, it definitely sounds like you've got something running in the background. Mine lasts at least 12 hrs, usually longer. Hope you get it figured out.

    Apps like Google Maps, foursquare, etc don't always shut down properly. As well turn off WIFI, NFC and bluetooth if you're not using them.
    Turn down the screen brightness and reduce the screen timeouts.
    If you're not using the web dial down from 3G to 2G
    This should extend your battery life quite a bit.

    Turn off Gps unless required by an app. As others point out, make sure apps are not running constantly in the background. Even with heavy use my battery lasts at least 12 hrs.

    Note that the software is only designed to use the 1230MAh from the OEM battery, so no matter what size battery you use, the system will only use 1230MAh, and therefore make the rest of the battery all but useless (which is why you saw no improvement from an extended battery).

    Even if you see an improvement with a larger battery, chances are that improvement is not from the battery itself being larger, but the battery simply being of better quality than the one that was shipped with the phone, and has little to do with the battery size. Some people get lucky with theirs (like me - I'm almost at 48 hours with my phone and I'm still at 65% running 7.0.0.585) and others not. Try backing everything up and doing a system wipe, and then restore the phone from your backup. You'd be amazed at how much of an improvement it makes - I did that the other day and am now reporting the battery life I mentioned above.

    Any and all complaints about battery life (on any phone and any os) always 100% come down to user choices..

    If you get 4hrs from a full charge its because of the choices you have made, close apps, reduce updates, delete apps..

    FYI i get 2-3 days of battery life from my 9930

    Use Wi-Fi too since you have 0.00% usage of it. That will help a lot.
    Also your bluetooth us using huge amounts of battery from the looks of it and you have high CPU usage from what I can see. close apps turn Wi-Fi on and use it and bluetooth off.

    mobile network usage 92.42%.........does this mean constantly looking for signal? Would definitely cause a drain.

    More than likely he's leaving his browser open after usage. That would also put a drain on the battery, not to mention any other apps still not closed.

    There's a fair bit of drain coming from his BBM app - so probably a lot of backlight too...

    I'd say switch 3G off and close all apps. Turn screen brightness down, Bluetooth off and Wi-Fi on and set up when you can. Maybe try not to have 1500 BBM contacts also... I find my 44 enough.

    Smile Much Happier with Battery Now

    I had just installed .342 on my brand new 9900 and was also having very poor battery life. 8 hrs tops. Here's what I did.
    1 Ditched Battery Watch
    2 Bought Berrymeter (optional)
    3 Use Conserve Wi-Fi by Fixmo. Free!
    4 Score Mobile seemed to be a battery eater. Turned auto update off.

    I also have my BB restart every morning using quick pull.

    Now my battery lasts much longer. Over 12 hrs today and still have 55% with light to moderate use today.

    Avg. Discharge Rate 2.7%

    net_rim_bb_unifiedsearch 7.3%

    That is very high for search...

    I would try disabling some options in univeral search, perhaps kill off search history and BBM search....
