    I get 13-16 hours of use. I was just on Europe, and, even with 3G in Europe, bersus 2g I use in US (T-Mo), I found I got better battery life in Germany this week.

    I would get 17-20 hours use with my 9700 on T-Mo 3g

    Well, 36ish hours and down to 18% battery life - might stick it on charge before bed but since the battery is still new, it is probably still breaking in so there should be more to come

    I find my battery life isn't as good as the 9700 and I don't have a spare battery so it's frustrating.

    This is my fourth BB, 8300, 9000, 9700 and now 9800 and out of those, all being used roughly the same on an average day, the 9700 is way out ahead on battery life.

    Rogers Tech Support gave me a reference number to go into a store to get a whole new device, so hopefully the replacement phone will have improved battery life.

    I took my phone off the charger at 9:00 am this morning and it's 9:30 pm now and I have 2% left. It's been a pretty low usage day for me as well, with no more than 30 mins in calls and a low email count for me, as I did an office day today rather then spend the day in the field like I usually do.

    Down to 2% without much usage is not a good thing! I hope the new phone is a good one and that the battery life is MUCH better. Let us know how it does!
