    Hi,
    Is anyone have problems with the Bold's battery life. If I use it for messaging and talking on the phone, the battery is quickly exhausted and by 2ish in the day I have to recharge. I have cut my backlight time, and the dimness and wifi is off.

    Any tricks?

    No problems here. Try upgrading the OS. Also check out the Bold forums. There are multiple threads going on about battery life. Welcome to CB!

    My battery lasts much longer after upgrading the OS.
    What is your OS version?

    I haven't upgraded. I just got the bold. Does the upgrade change anything?

    There's said to be a big shift in battery life at OS 4.6.0.162 and later. Anything before .147 is certainly cause for immediate upgrade. Come join the serious users over on the Bold message board to discuss.

    Sorry I am new to this, where is that at and where do I find the upgrade. Do I need to backup before I upgrade?
