    Ive had my storm for a little over a week. I had .75 up until wed when i downloaded .76 and since then my batt cant even go a day without 2 charges. yesterday it went from 8am to barely 6pm and today it went 8am to 3pm.

    could it be OS .76? or is my batt defective?

    I'm thinking you have a bunch of apps in the background... I can go all day with moderate use. Unplugging it at 7am and then getting home at 6 and I've still got 4 of 5 bars left.

    Do you make sure you close it when you're not using it? Hold your BB buttons for a few secs and when the task icons appear is there anything in there that you've installed?

    Hold your BB button down, you will see a list of apps running in the background. There are some that will NOT close, but those aren't your problem. Look for things like "youtube" app, weatherbug, ect. Next click on the apps that you want to close, then press your bb button. You will see an option all the way at the bottom that says "Close". Learn to do that on each and every app you open, even the ones that wont close.

    .76 was released for Bell, some people have reported a few fixes, others nothing. From what I am gathering .76 is the same as .75 just a different manufacture release.
