    If I am just using it for email/texting etc it will last me all day, if I browse on the internet a lot I will need to top it up during the day.

    If I just email or watch video or liten to music I'm good for the day. Get 2 good phone calls and battery is dead. I bought a couple of extras on ebay, real inexpensive, so when battery goes low I just change. I also alternate batteries each day, two positives 1) each battery will last longer 2) rebooting system keeps it running smooth. I find when I use the browser after a while it feeezes, could be cookies now I think about it. I just switched to Sprint unlimited so no more worries about minute usage, glad I bought those extra batteries.

    Depends on use but I use my phone a lot during the day and my battery was lasting me around a day and a half (with heavy usage). So I bought the Seidio 2600mAh Extended battery & it gets me around 3 days w/ heavy usage.

    I charge every night and have about 65% left at the end of the day. I use only the standard battery. I also use a lot of data everyday and am always using the media player.

    I am on the Curve 8300. I use my phone quite a lot for browsing, bbm, I spend bout 2 - 3 hours per day on the phone, and the occasional games when I need to freshen up.

    I usually charge my phone when I go to sleep, so I wake up with a full charge. With all the activities stated above, I still manage to squeeze out a full day of use.

    Seidio makes an extended battery for the pearl that is no bigger than the stock battery. I'm not sure if they make one for the curve, but you could check.

    I charge every night, but that's because I never want to get caught the next day w.o power.

    I use the bluetooth and I text/browse throughout the day. In work, from time to time. Out of work, every couple of minutes I'm doing something, usually CB forums.

    On workdays it usually lasts about 22 hours (everyday I'm charging it earlier and earlier) on my off days I don't browse or use the media player it lasts more than 2 days. Not bad for the amount I use it really.

    I use my BlackBerry way too much, heh. No sign of stopping though. Most days my battery is down to about 20% by the end of the day with pretty heavy browsing and messaging (usually around 15 hours later). On some days-like today- when I had several 45 minute phone conversations, alongside light browsing, the battery doesn't last but maybe 6 hrs. It was down to only one bar after two long phone calls today. Took it off the charger at 12pm and it was drained by 6:30pm. Seems that at least on this end phone calls drain it faster than browsing and texting. I'll be ordering a spare battery and might get the extended one. I don't mind a little extra bulk because my pearl 2 is pretty tiny.
