    I have both an iPhone 5 and 9930... I love to use my 9930 throughout the week for work but lately have been keeping the iPhone activated because the battery drain on the Bold is terrible.
    For instance... If I'm not even touching the Bold for a few hours (with all apps closed) it will easily drop 10-20% whereas my iPhone will steadily stay 98-100%.
    I have the latest OS, do all the recommended battery saving tips, and am in a high coverage area. Just find this odd!

    How old is the unit and the battery? Could be it is fading? Any new apps? I believe there are some implicated in higher battery drain.

    Let's see if anyone else has ideas.

    Thanks for the reply. Brand new unit and battery. The only major apps used are Facebook and whatsapp

    There you go! Depends how you use FB but whatsapp is a known battery killer. Check out this thread: http://forums.crackberry.com/showthread.php?p=8742730
