    I bought my boss a pearl this past week and the battery is dying in 12 hours or so. I have an 8820 and the battery lasts for a long time. I was thinking that it must be a faulty battery but I'm not sure. So my question is..12 hours of use shouldn't make the battery go dead right? She is not a big text'r she doesn't surf or play brickbreaker all day either. Any help is grealty appriciated!

    From my experience, texting or emailing or even browsing didn't seem to drain the battery too badly. For me long phone calls definitely takes a toll on the battery. Perhaps she's calling a lot of people?

    When I was using the original battery it would last a whole day of bb messenger and texting. I would have to charge it every night but it lasted a whole day now with my extended battery I hit 2 to 2 and a half days before a charge.

    My battery seems to die quickly also. I'm planning on buying the extended life battery. Maybe tell her to lower the brightness of her screen. That seems to help.

    Complete discharge in 12 hours is def far below avg, even with moderate to heavy use.

    Mostly likely causes:
    - bad signal area
    - apps running in background
    - defective battery

    Watching videos or making calls all day are really the only thing that will drain a good battery that fast.

    An other vote for the extended battery.

    I think the battery life on the Pearl is great compared to other phones I have had that would barely make it 4-6 hours with the amount I use it. I'm signed into JiveTalk and on my browser all day at work and it always lasts a full work day. I do have a charger at my desk just in case but I really don't even need it there
