    hows your battery life been on this new Bold doing heavy usage through the day? I dont have the Bold quite yet since Verizon doesnt carry it yet, but I do have the 2600 battery which will transfer to the new Bold, but I want to get away with not having to put that big battery in if I dont have too. I want more case options, and theres only 2 that can fit with the extended battery.

    so I just want to know from the heavy users here how the battery life is doing on your phone? I normally wake up up 4am, and go to bed at 10pm...just wondering if I can get away with the stock battery on the Bold?

    be honest though, hows the battery life?

    it sucked at first and now it is getting better. just bbm'ing for 3 hours and refreshing my twitter put me at 35%

    it has gotten alot better now though and seems to be getting better by the charge.

    I agree, I was not happy with the battery life the first few days I had it. A week into it now I'm getting much better battery life. I start my day at 8am and finish around 10pm. I'm not super heavy on data but I do use bbm and check out a lot websites through out the day. With *my* version of heavy use I still have 25% left at the end of the day.

    I got rid of my Palm Pre. The batt life sucked. So before I got my 9650 I ordered the extended 2600 batt from Crackberry. The batt is awesome. I picked it up for $50 with a coupon code. I highly recommend the extended batt. No more worries about running out of juice.

    yes, I have the 2600 battery also. LOVE the battery, HATE the case selections. There are only 2 cases that fit with the extended battery from Seidio. I was hoping the Bold has good enough battery life to make it a day so I can get some better cases then what I'm stuck with that fits with the extended battery,....

    With work, email, text, bbm, music, videos, and some apps running in the background...my phone will last roughly 6-8 hours before needing a charge.

    Think it's too early to tell, even for those who got it day 1...
