    My battery is 4 months old (same as my 8330) and for the past week my battery is dead after less than 10 hours. I installed the Accuweather push for BB last week. Could that push app be draining it?? Today I have had 4 calls for a total time of less than an hour, no texting and only 4 emails. If it is the accuweather push then I guess I need to invest in an extended battery.

    delete the app and give it a test.

    you can also adjust your backlight settings:

    options
    screen/keyboard
    backlight brightness : 40-50
    backlight timeout: 10-20 sec

    also, every time you are done using your device press the standby (mute) button to shut the light off right away.

    or, yeah, just get an extended battery!

    Yeah I've got my backight set to like 10 sec. and I have no apps showing running other than the few that run all the time. The Curve is set to turn off at 11:00pm and back on at 7:30am and is on the charger for that time. Not sure if me being out in the hinderlands with a weak signal might have something to do with it.
