    Hi, all.

    I'm having a problem over here with my 9700. I have a jillion apps and have had really good battery life up until Monday. Typically, I leave work at 3 with 80% or more on my battery. Monday, I had 60% at 3, with less than typical use. Additionally, when I leave school at 3 I begin to use my phone heavily and have been down to 10% by 7 o'clock.

    I have Facebook, Twitter (not set to automatically update, hardly use it once a week), QSMS, BerryWeather (updates every three hours), CB Launcher, BlackBerry Maps launcher (used only once), Gmail, Google Maps, Google Sync (set to manual only), GPS Tracker (installed, not yet even opened), Kisses, I Love BlackBerry, Opera Mini (only out of curiosity, never use it), BerryBuzz, Color ID Lite, Poynt, Youmail, and AppWorld. I do not have BBM installed. I suspect that the battery drain culprit is Color ID Lite, but I'm not certain. Anyone have any ideas? It wouldn't be such a problem but my car charger thingy broke off IN the little lighter hole so I'm restricted to charging via wall until I get it fixed.

    I'm not sure if it matters, but I am on .405 and charge nightly regardless of what I have at the end of the evening.

    Thanks for reading such a lengthy message!

    It could be berrybuzz also, I see that you have color Id to. Berrybuzz and color id do the samething. I know color id can specifically change the led for certain contacts but deleting one will help with memory also. If your not leaving any other apps open like google maps, I would suggest its either berrybuzz or color id lite.

    I do have GPS set to "location off." I'm not sure how BerryWeather "knows" where I am - cell towers? I was hoping it wasn't. ColorID or BerryBuzz; I like those ones! I'll give it a test today w/o ColorID and see if it doesn't improve. Thanks for the suggestions!

    I wanted to follow up and let others know what happened. I went a day without ColorID Lite and my battery life was back to normal. I was at 80% when I left school, which was about where I was daily prior to adding that app. I'm kinda bummed, because I love having the disco lights, but I guess that's the way it goes. I do still have BerryBuzz on, and it's working, so I am fairly certain that I've isolated the responsibility for the battery drain to ColorID Lite.

    BerryBuzz was just updated today. It allows you to specify notifications for certain contacts. It also has about 10 different disco options.
