    How many of you use your 9900/9930s as an MP3 player on a daily basis and what is the battery life like when using the music player and doing all your other daily tasks on your BlackBerry?

    I'm thinking of getting rid of th old iPod and using my 9900's built in MP3 player but I'm hoping it won't affect my battery life too much. Can anyone shed a bit of light on this from your own experience?

    Thanks

    I run mine 8-10hrs and only use 20%, not streaming. I'm on .540 by the way. I'm one of the ones who get great battery life on my phone.....comparable to my 9700 if not better

    I'm a heavy user (work and play) and I have the media player running in the background all day long, starting around 6:30 I'm usually running about 40% by around 6-7 pm. I'll put it back on the charger before going out that night to make sure it won't die while I'm out. Even if I don't charge it in the evening, I'll make it until about 12 or 1am before the indicator turns red. In short, the power is adequate...barely. I just bought the Nokia charger and will see tomorrow if it makes any difference.

    I play a lot of podcast mp3s, which are typically anywhere from a half hour to two hours in length. The download is one thing, but playback doesn't seem to add more than about 1-2% drain per hour.
