    As of now my battery lasts almost a whole day. However, this is not enough as it is only almost a whole day. I have had my phone die and needed to make a call so I was wondering if something like the 1600MAH OEM SIZED EXTENDED LIFE BATTERY FOR BLACKBERRY 8800/8820/8830 was good? (Cant post link because I dont have 10 posts)
    Has anyone bought this and seen good results?
    Also, would buying something like this somehow void my warranty or something with Verizon?

    Thanks.

    Buying the exteneded battery should not void you warranty!
    How much do you use your phone? i am constantly on my phone, 2 hours a day talking, and i could even begin to tell you how many text and emails. i use the internet like crazy and my battery last for at least 2 days. i charge it almost every other night.
    Even when my phone gets to 40% battery i know i have about a day left.

    holy cow! I don't use my phone maybe a 1/4 that much and I barely make it thru the day with the OEM battery. I start with 100% since I take it off the charger on my way out the door.

    what kind of battery are you using, bwhyte?

    yeah I get about a day with heavy usage... well probably more than a day, I get done at night and have about 20-30% and charge it back up. Now there's been one or two days since I got it that I didn't use it very heavily and barely cracked below probably 90 or 95%... I'd love to get a larger battery (especially before my flight to guam when I'll have two series of 10-12 hour flights and I'll likely have quite a few movies on my memory stick to watch on the way - lol)

    I just have the standard battery that came with the phone. I know that when i had Sprint, I had a razr and the battery would not last more then 4 hours with no use at all. I then switched to Alltel and got the razr at first and my battery last 2-3 days with 2-3 hours of talk time. It's was amazing. When I asked Alltel why that would happen, they said it was because of the system that Sprint uses, and it requires more battery.
    I was thinking about upgrading the battery on my razr but all the exteneded batterys are bigget then normal, so you have to put a different battery door on your phone which then turns you sleek phone into a huge ugly phone!
    I wouldn't get the extended battery unless it's the same size as the orignal.

    The battery will drain more quickly if it is constantly searching for a strong signal. How is your signal?

    I actually think that my battery got better after about a month of normal use.

    Do you turn your phone off at night when youre sleeping? This helped, to the point that I can charge every 3rd day or so.

    Ya, I don't us my phone really at all. Maybe 2 or 3 calls a day. And I probably send and recieve 20 emails a day. My battery never goes below 85%. But then that is probably just because of my usage time.
