    Hello , hope you all are good.

    Wanted to ask how is the battery life of Bold 9790 in 2018, if only used for texts and calls. For how many days will it last on single charge if I use it for occasional texts and calls only?

    Your feedback will be appreciated.

    Days?

    It has a 35 hr Standby rating.... that's with a new battery.

    So with a little usage I'd say one day.

    Turn brightness down all the way, kill any unused radios, you might make it into the next day.

    I always found the 9790 disappointing for battery life and it's the only BB device I've had issues with in that regard.

    I recently dug up my old 9700, 9780, and 9790 devices and got new batteries for each; the 00 and 80 hold power for months with firing up every day but no real use; the 90 drains power so quickly it doesn't even last a couple of weeks even when switched off, I'm told this isn't so unusual with this model

    As an FYI, here's my device that won't charge with a new battery but my partner's 9790 will with the same OEM battery:
