    While I realize there are countless posts about battery life, this one is pretty specific. We are a two Z10 family, both now running 10.3.1 after the Rogers upgrade. Since then, the battery life is awful, giving us barely half the time we could once count on. We've narrowed it down to data services on the mobile network.

    If we're running WiFi in the house, there's no problem and battery life is pretty much what it always was. Turn on Data Services and you can practically watch that sucker drain. Note that it doesn't matter what applications we run, or don't run. The phone can be sitting idle, but if Data Services are turned on, the drain continues.

    We've tried rebooting, removing the battery, long press reset, and clean install. Nothing helps.

    Thoughts? Ideas?

    You might want ot try a different radio on your device, you can load a new radio by auto loader and its non-destructive so you wouldn't loose any of your info, just find out what Os your running and see what other radio's work with it and then just try a couple. you can find all OS and radio in this link below.

    ps: just go to first post on this link.

    Thanks for the post been scratching my head all week trying to figure this out. I'm running the Rogers leak on a T-Mobile phone. Hopefully if they decide to release the update this decade it'll fix the problem.

    Took my phone of the charger and it literally went from 100 to 91 in 2 mins. WTF!

    Double check that dropbox, box and onedrive aren't set to sync off wifi. I made that mistake and dropbox killed my passport in about 7 hours - it shows as System in the device monitor.

    But the same logic would exist for other apps too.

    It's because blackberry runs it in the file manager, so it runs with bbry permissions. It also allows them to surpass the headless limitations for CPU and memory - which is dumb, because those limits are there to protect you.

    They keep me locked in a basement with only my passport *sniff*!

    Actually in my case I spent forever troubleshooting my passport to figure out how it could use a whole charge in 6 hours! It was bad wifi connections, so dropbox tried really hard to keep sending data and was burning up my battery. Clicking it off, and no issues! But then I sometimes need dropbox so...
