    My wifes BlackBerry Classic suddenly has lost battery power.
    It was fine up until a couple of days ago. Now it drains out in about 3 hours and that with it not running anything!
    She's rebooted etc.
    Still drains fast.
    Any one else have this problem?

    If it's a Q10, all ye gotta do is get another original battery. This is exactly the reason for my hesitation to buy a Classic, despite my keen towards its larger screen and keyboard. I think you have to at least change the battery, before deciding there's anything else amiss with it (board, etc).

    Could be the battery itself...nothing lasts forever, but...

    Any spills or moisture exposure? Any recent updates to OS? Any recent app installs especially Android?

    Run BBVE and check your battery usage and look for any significant app usage.

    Might be worth a try reloading the OS?

    If drain persists it could very well be the battery.

    I myself have also noticed a sharp decrease in battery life.

    I have only had my Classic about a month now and the battery is mostly a 12 hour day on moderate use.

    I was hoping for a battery life a day or so. Some of the earlier reviews had the battery much better but now the trend with this OS being lower.

    Try going into the App Manager in settings, there is some blue writing at the bottom press it and you will get a list of apps if you select an app there should be a slider to opt out of "run when minimised" or "run in the background". These may resolve your issues...
