    Default Severe battery drain after letting it completely deplete. FIXED(finally!)

    (I haven't read through the forums so I don't know if anyone has already written something similar)

    I have a Curve 8520, about 2 weeks ago I forget to put it on charge before I went to bed, I found the phone off in the morning and plugged it in. Since then my battery had been draining severely especially whenever the "Data services" were on, sometimes up to 35% in less than 40 minutes whilst on standby.

    So here is what I did, I fully charged the phone, then did a battery pull. Just don't put it on charge till it reboots, if you do put it on charge whilst rebooting you will still have the problem.

    After it rebooted I left it on standby for 30 minutes and I've been on facebook and the crackberry forums for 1hr 40mins, and only used up 15% of battery life.

    I hope this helps someone.
