    I recently was able to talk my wife into entering the world of BB. She choose the 8530 in purple. She absolutely loves the phone. However if she lets the phone sit in idle for an extended period the phone will power off. Is there a setting that I am missing that I can stop that from happening there have been several call that were missed because her BB mysteriously shut its self off.

    Never heard of it... Consider getting it swapped...

    Hmm I have heard of this and typically a device swap is in order. But a few questions first - does it shut down at the same time everyday? Have you tried swapping batteries with hers and seeing if that causes your to do the same thing? I have heard of major battery issues with the purple devices. If she plugs the phone in does it still shut off?

    Mine seems to do the same thing, but when I don't get reception deep inside buildings, after I upgraded to .654 It sure beats having the battery being dead next time I look at it, not to mention the radiation. ._.

    Her battery life on that phone has been great. However I'm not sure how good it is because the phone kept shutting itself off. The phone would turn itself off at not one particular time. If she plugs the phone in it doesn't shut itself down. We swapped out phone today due to being under the 30 days. Hopefully this phone does not have the same demons. I tried to convince her to go with the Bold but she loves her purple curve.
