    Def make sure your S/W is updated. The Tour is new so you want to make sure you're current.

    Then... start having some fun. Also go to BlackBerry Messenger and download BBM 5.0 (go to that link from your browser).

    Then play around, and be happy that you're getting a pretty solid battery life for an "always on" data enabled device, and laugh at previous phones you've had. Welcome to the Crack.

    My battery life on the Tour seems horrible. I got the phone as a replacement from Verizon after my 4th BB Storm. The battery seems to drain extremely quickly, even more so than the Storm. I charged is as stated by RIM...Full overnight charge, and then let it get down to 1 bar, and do the same thing again. Still having issues with a shortened battery life. Have any pointers on extending the life? Or do you know a forum posting where i ca nget this info? I searched the forum's, and could not find anything regarding this! Thanks!

    My battery life is usually fine most of the time and can go with it a full day before I have to charge it again. But there has been a few times when the battery life all of the sudden takes a plunge...strange

    My battery lasts 3 - 4 days with moderate use. I close all apps after using them and I am not a gamer.

    My battery was better after I turned off the GPS (to E911 only) and dimmed my screen a little. I am sorry that I don't remember the thread that advised that. Maybe just search a little for battery life in the threads. I love mine!
