    I have had my Tour for about two weeks and I have noticed something odd. If I charge my BB with the wall charger it will last 8-12 hrs. However, it seems if I charge with the USB cable it seems to last for two, sometimes three, days! Is this normal or am I missing something?

    Something is definitely odd about your experience. Wall chargers typically are a more reliable charging source that a USB port. However, a full charge is a full charge, regardless of source. Tours have notoriously poor battery life. I typically change batteries in the late afternoon every day. I can't imagine getting 2-3 days use from a single battery, regardless of charging source.

    Well how about this for odd. Everyday I charge my phone at 6pm, unplug at 9 and put it into "standby" for the night. When I wake at 6am the next morning sometimes it will be at 95% battery and sometimes it will be at 50%. What is causing such an extreme difference?

    Did your use varied from your 2 exemples?

    I know that usb charge slower than the wall, but I never noticed any difference between the 2 types and ccharging life...

    It sounds like something is taking it out of standby during the night. If you have anything running other than the 5 always-running apps (Messages, Messenger, Home Screen, Phone, and Browser), consider whether it could be waking up your phone.

    Standby isn't the same as power off. Even in standby the device is still using the radio signal.
