    I am having issues with BBM killing my battery. I normally leave my phone to charge overnight. The last 2 days however I have decided not too. I always put the phone into flight mode because where I am there is no network.

    I have got up the last 2 days to a dead phone. No apps were open when I went to bed.

    I have checked device monitor and bbm has used 88% of battery in the last 12 hours, but it has been closed longer than that.??

    Also, what on earth is Bbm uploading?

    I only use bbm for one contact, my girlfriend, and we have been at home together so no need for the app open.

    I have attached a screen shot showing that it has uploaded over 65mb of data in the last 48 hours. I don't mind the data usage but I would like to know what exactly it is uploading, I haven't been sharing photos.

    How long have you had your phone? Do you think your battery is faulty, or is there space between the pins and the battery? I have no clue what BBM is uploading... user data to BlackBerry? I have several contacts and on both WiFi and Mobile Network, the uploads are around 300KB... so these relatively large data sizes are odd.

    There are other threads in the forum about bbm killing batteries. It happened to me also, when I was in an area of weak wifi and cell. Killed my battery in three hours. I rebooted a few times, left it on the charger, and the problem went away (also, my trip ended, and I was back in an area of good reception, so i'm not sure if that's to blame). Still on the same load, it hasn;t happened again in three months.

    Should have said the phone is a Q5 so battery can't be touched. Also the phone is now over a year old. Additionally the phone is in flight mode at night so no data connection and bbm is closed.
