    Half a day of usage though even without these does sound a bit extreme though, there is a chance your battery is bad. You can have your battery replaced by VZW and see if that helps.

    Do you have any apps that are causing the back light to come on at all times? I found that google sync was destroying my battery lol. You might try turning the back light options down.

    My BB doesn't leave my side and I use it all day...it barely makes it lol but it makes it!

    UH, we could use a little more information. Like what OS are you running, what apps are loaded, etc.

    I've had some issues with battery drain and might have some ideas for you.

    IF none of the suggestions that others have posted helped, you could always get the Seido extended battery, it basically doubles your battery life.

    It helped my battery life a lot when I started keeping my GPS off when not in use, which I don't use it very often.

    Sorry i have an unlocked 9500. It's as it comes out the box.
    All i have done extra is set up my email account.

    I have not done anything extra and to be honest would not know if there are a million things running at once!!

    cheers mike

    In addition to heavy use do you pocket carry? I noticed every step I take is a screen press. Locked or not it comes on

    I started facing the screen out to resolve this but now concerned about leaning against something & breaking it.

    I would check your back light options...this helped me out TONS...also it seems like texting messaging takes a lot of battery lol.

    I found that blackberry messenger drained my battery. I normally get a bb Im from a colleague each morning. If I forget to end the conversation my battery is completely drained by mid afternoon. The conversation even stays open after a battery pull!
