    I unplugged the phone at 7am. It is now 10:45am and I am at %80 battery.
    What gives?? Brightness at 0. I have sent 5 emails at MOST. No bbm, no web pages, nothing running in the background. Pulled battery etc....

    Is this weird or what?

    Every time you do a battery pull, the battery life will rapidly decrease unless you put the device on the charger after doing the battery pull and leave it on the charger until it reboots.

    are you switching from 3G to 2G to no reception a lot?

    This tends to have a big impact on the battery life of a phone.

    True, but I only pulled it once to see if it was doing anything strange.

    Battery Pull on the Torch only drops it about 1%.

    Your poor battery life is either:
    1) Related to apps you have installed
    2) Related to a bad OS install
    3) Related to a bad battery/hardware issue
    4) The result of poor signal/reception

    When unused, my 9800 drops about 1% every 1-2 hours.

    To do OP, do you have a 9800 or 9630? Your profile says 9630. Battery pulls on the 9630 will drain the battery more than on the 9800, and the reboot time is longer.

    Latest OS .337
    GPS turned off.
    I had no weather programs installed.
    No twitter updates.
    I did a wipe before NEW OS install.
    Always on 3G because that is all that is available in Toronto for TELUS.

    It just recently started too, before it wasn't bad at all.
    I am not a doob with blackberries. So this is stupming me.
    I took off google sync to see if that did something.
    Reception is great!

    If you really want to get to the bottom of it, you could do a security wipe and see if your battery improves for an hour or two.

    If not, then try an OS reinstall.

    If you still have crappy battery life, you might need a new battery.

    Most of the time, though, it's app related.

    is there a battery app out there that tells you how much battery consumption each app is using?

    Think the closest you'll get is MeterBerry, but that only gives you overall discharge rate.

    If it "all of a sudden" started to happen, it almost HAS to be app related!

    I've noticed with .337 I get BAD battery life if I have both wireless network, and wifi on unless they both have a signal. Don't know why!

    yah for some reason today my discharge rate is like 8.5% an hr!!!!

    i downloaded:

    paper toss
    kik messenger

    so i do not know if those have anything to do with it.. I think Rogers is having issues as my reception keeps dropping to SOS and data is wonky (i.e bbm won't send, see the clock) we'll see what happens tomorrow...

    I usually had great battery power until today. The only thing I did differently was upgrade my facebook app. Then the battery dropped like a brick in a lake.

    So even updating apps that are already loaded can cause problems. :P

    My battery was being sucked dry until I switched to 2G. Now I only run 3G if I need to surf the web, but everything else functions great on 2G. I also realized I had Pandora running in the background (music was paused, but the app was still running), shutting Pandora down helped as well.

    The dph is higher on .337 than it was on .284.

    But in all honesty I could care less. The pros outweigh the cons.

    One of the reasons that made me switch back to the 9700 was the battery life....

    But @ OP, check recent apps and what people have suggested...could be a bad battery.

    I notice on my phone that the first 20% get eaten up pretty quickly but throughout the day I can be easily above 40-50% by the time I go to bed. I've never been able to explain it but it works for me... figure that. I'd say go a full day and see what you end up with at the end... THEN make a judgment.

    That is exactly what I was gonna say. lol. The first 20 - 30% goes down super fast for me. Like for the first 2 or 3 hours I was down to 80% from a full charge without doing anything heavy on the phone. And now 10 hours later my battery is at 50% so I'm not sure why the first 20% of battery life drops down like a brick and then seems to level out after a while.
