    to do a diagnostic test on your BB to check the performance ? I had a full charge this morning...hardly used it today at work .... yet it was down to 10% when I left work . That's over 9 hours .

    The only thing I changed in the last week was adding the trial version of Ace Email Viewer . I also upgraded my OS to V 4.5.0.77 ....and I'm pretty sure it's configured right .

    The other 3rd party apps I have on it are

    Aerize Alerts
    Geocache Navigator
    Google Maps
    Quick Pull
    Vib and Ring
    Weathereye
    BB Wallet

    Nothing that shouldn`t be is running in the background as I`m anal about making sure I close everything properly and not just back out of it .

    Also , would it harm the OS if I deleted BB maps as I prefer Google maps . Right now I have BB maps hiding and figured I ' d check before giving it the boot

    Any help would be muchly appreciated .

    Thanks AG

    But where do I type the word TEST . Going into options > status there is nowhere for me to type text . I tried just typing it anyways and pushing menu and it brought up DATABASE SIZES , COPY , SWITCH APPLICATION , CLOSE.

    Did notice my file free was only at 9.8 MB so did a quick pull which brought it up to 14.8 MB. This is where it was at this morning so seems like I could have a memory leak as well . Also , before the quick pull my battery was at 25%...after the QP it was at 45% . Could low file free memory cause your battery to read lower / drain faster than it should and would doing a QP act as a refresh and make the battery level jump

    Also , I'm connected to a BT headset all day ...but have been for the past 3 months and it's never really caused a battery drain

    Everything passed EXCEPT for my GPS antenna . Which could explain why I've been having troubles with Geocache Navigator . YET google maps just located me in my basement . So how can my antenna be buggy if satellites find me in a basement ?

    How would you check that ? My BB is in an otterbox case...could that play into reception quality ?
