    Im going to be getting a new blackberry (currently have the pearl) and want to know what people's impressions of the Storm's battery life are. From the posts, people either love it or hate it. Is there something that makes it last longer? I just want some impressions. Thanks

    I love the battery on my phone. I don't run a lot of extra apps in the background so sometimes I can get over two days worth of normal texting, browsing, and bluetooth phone conversations. I usually have about 10% remaining after the 2 days.

    How do you turn off apps that are running the in the background and how you do you tell which ones are running?

    I can go through 1 day before it is in need of charging. Not the best battery life.

    I tend to get a couple days out of my battery. I'm still getting used to this. My last phone got 5-7 days out of a single charge, so just over 2 days or so seems short to me, but seems to be about the average for most people on here. There are some steps you can take after buying to prolong your battery which do help. There are some threads about this.

    Took mine off the charger about 11 hours ago, made phone calls, texts, browsing, music for about 3 hours, and a few other apps and down to 63%.

    My battery life is not much different from my previous curve or pearl. I am a heavy user and I get about a days use of charge out of it.

    I can go 2 days easy without charge. I turned off GPS and made some other changes recommended here (brightness to 40%, etc). Works great.

    Also have a holster that puts the phone to sleep when on my hip.

    mine dies after about 7 hours of just sitting in my holster. I'm taking mine back for a replacement since I've heard that this is not normal from one of the Verizon CSR's.

    The Storm battery life is horrible if your a power user like myself. My Curve can go 2 days of heavy useage without charging but my Storm will not make it through a day. However, to get around the poor battery life I keep charges in the car, office and home....

    I get about a day to a day and a half out of mine. I have 3 themes, I play games while I smoke throughout the day, do a little internet, few calls, more texting. It seems like the battery life is a crap shoot. However, when I called Verizon to complain about my battery not lasting even 1 full day, they sent me a replacement and it's been better.

    With normal use i can get about a day and a half. Being careful (no music, no maps, etc) I can get almost three full days.

    So it is possible to stretch the life but that's treating it much the same as a dumb phone.

    mine will be at about half in one day.

    it doesnt matter for me though because i charge it every night, and i dont understand why other people dont.

    changing the backlight to 50 made a huge difference in battery life for me.

    I was only getting a 1 day charge from the battery, I listen to slacker and browse at the same time alot, so I bought the extended 2600 battery and it last 3-4 days now for me. I also enjoy the bigger back cause I can hold the phone better in the landscape position.

    You can get it from here....although I bought it from an online auction site cause it was cheaper and I had a coupon for free s/h.
