    I wanted to share this in case it helps others resolve their issues or blackberry find a root cause.

    - I've had my Z30 for more than a year, and originally was getting easily 18+ hours per charge

    - For most of the last 12 months, my Z30 has been averaging only 10-12 hours (tolerable, but not great)

    - While a few weeks ago I removed 2 active sync accounts from my phone and deleted unused apps (Still have a BES account and multiple personal accounts, etc), I think my contact cleaning effort last week may have been the key

    - As many of us have experienced, the contact app can cause a lot of issues including duplicates. I exported, cleaned, and uploaded to Gmail my core contacts (removing at least a thousand). This included running the clean functions in Gmail and Hotmail with my phone in airplane mode. Then, I deleted the contacts off my phone (painful) and removed /re-added my primary Gmail account.

    - Yes, I lost some data in the process, but my battery just lasted more than 24 hours during yesterday's holiday (I expect 18+ during a normal work day). I'm pretty excited as I hopelessly wait for Verizon to carry the passport .

    I welcome any comments or thoughts. It seems (in additional to better phone and desktop utilities for managing contacts) that as the number of contacts increase, battery life may suffer, and potentially there is also a bug.

    Happy new year all!

    Fyi, I'm running Z30STA100-3/
