    Hello everyone, I'm a new blackberry owner and so far I'm fairly impresseed with the phone. I'm having little issues here and there. Most recently however (started yesterday) my battery is losing charge at an alarming rate. I had to re-charge twice yesterday, and today it's 10:49 am (fully charged this morning when I left home at 7:45) and I'm already almost half down. I'm not using the phone at all though! nothing. Is there something that could be running in the background? thoughts? thanks in advance.

    Hold blackberry menu button to bring up active running app's.. Any third party app's in there close them.. Also pull the battery and let the device restart, that should kill any app's you may have running.
