    Hi, i just got the bold a few days ago...i fully charged it, and then i barely used it and the battery drained like crazy. It went down like 6% in 10 mins. Barely any apps are running, my screen brightness is only on 10. I thought it was a defected phone, so i switched it out for another one...it still does the same thing. My curve didn't drain like this...is it just the new bold...or what? It's really annoying...no way i could go a whole work day without charging it. I took it off charge a few mins ago, it was at 100%, 10 mins later, with no use...its on %90.

    [COLOR="Red"][B]I tried swiping it and it didnt revert back to 7.0 =[

    Are you running OS 7.1?
    Because the 7.1 Sprint Official is having problems reading the battery meter.

    It drops from 100 to 92.
    Then the rest drops normally.

    Yes Ma'am.
    Er.. I actually don't know if you are a boy or girl.

    So.. I'll just say ma'am.

    You will have to backup your phone and restore to a different OS Manually with a computer.

    I would go ahead and download the OS first.
    The second link I sent you is Sprint's latest 7.0 Update.
    Hopefully it will be better than the 7.1.

    While doing that, I would look into installing BBSAK. (Free computer application.)

    You shouldn't have to.
    You will still need to download the second link. It is the last OS that is 7.0 so there isn't really a way around that.

    -Wait.
    That First link.. Is SUPER old.
    Hm. You may need to Use Application Loader instead.
    This link is better.

    Uninstall the one that says 7.1
    Uninstall it from your control panel.

    Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features

    Copy and paste into the explorer Bar at the top.

    Ok i'm at this part "Click Update
    At this point, disconnect your computer from the internet
    Select the OS you would like to load and continue
    Do not unplug BB during the process. It will take around 20-90 minutes to complete upgrade."

    I dont see update anywhere? Just my applications and import...and if i do import, i dont know where the file is installed at? I tried swiping it and it didnt revert back to 7.0 =[ And now i try to login to my app world and it says i cant find my email?!?! And now unable to create a new one. FML. So now i cant get email to my phone...i go to email accounts and it asks me to login to my berry ID...which doesnt work.
